How do I get published in L-H?
Contact the Editor, s
Lögberg-Heimskringla is open to non-fiction submissions covering many areas, including:
community news (varies — check with the editor)
opinion pieces (600 – 800 words)
book reviews (500 words)
movie reviews (500 words)
music reviews (150 – 200 words)
historical pieces (500 – 1000 words)
personal interviews (500 – 600 words)
In the past we have published longer pieces in instalments, but we no longer do this due to space limitations. If you have an article longer than 1000 words, we strongly recommend the Icelandic Connection Magazine as an alternative.
What are we looking for?
Short, timely articles of interest to people of Icelandic descent and Icelandophiles across North America and in Iceland.
What kind of books, movies, music are we looking for in reviews?
Anything new by people of Icelandic descent, or something that was previously unavailable. For example, if an Icelandic movie was a big hit in Iceland last year and is now showing in North America for the first time, that’s “new.” The same goes for books and music, though given Internet sales, these are often available directly from Iceland without much of a time lag.
A brief note about covering local events
L-H is always looking for ways to create community involvement. We need individuals to report on their club events and to provide photographs and illustrations. You don't need to be a professional. Let us and the rest of our community know what you are going to do and what you have done. We'll be happy to tell our readers about what you are going to do but also follow up with a report on how your event went. Also, let us know about individuals of Icelandic background even though they're not in a local club. Reporting about each other and what we are doing creates community.
Please contact one of our reporters and share and article or a story. Thank You!
