Visitors are invited to contribute articles to Notes from the Lane for possible publication.
Anyone may submit; participation is not limited to Ruby Lane shops.

If you have a topic idea that does not mirror the types of topics or writing styles that you already see published on the site, we encourage you to come forward with your suggestion so that we may expand the scope of the site. Publication approval will be based on the quality and accuracy of the article, and the expertise of the author. Submission for pre-approval is strongly recommended. To be considered, send your theme or ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your name and a brief bio that qualifies your expertise.
Contributors to Notes from the Lane will also receive a copy of the Contributor Logo to place on their shop homepage or blog.
Contributors may include a link to their online shop, website, or blog, along with their name, contact information and logo which will be published with their article.
