if you can't come during office hours.

Computer File Submissions:
- The Gorgon can accept almost
any popular word processing or graphics file format for submissions. Though
we'd prefer that your submissions stick to the following guidlines. All computer
submissions should be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
or given to a staff member on a 3.5" floppy or zip
- Written: We prefer plain
text ASCII files. If you would like your submission formatted in a certain
way which cannot be displayed in a plain text document, please supplement
the plain text file with a postscript file of the laid out text; we will try
to match it as closely as possible. If you cannot create a postscript file,
a word processing file in whatever program you typed your work should suffice.
- Visual: We generally use
300 or 600 dpi images. TIFF or JPEG is preferred; if you cannot save as TIFF
or JPEG, most other graphics formats are acceptable also.
