Wythe County Historical Review


The Wythe County Historical Society invites the submission of articles relevant to the history of Wythe County, Virginia. Supporting documentation is required for all articles, with the occasional exception for reminiscences. All materials accepted for publication will be edited for usage and style. Upon request authors may review edited material prior to publication. Articles too lengthy to appear in a single issue of the review may, with the author’s consent, be published in multiple parts.

The author is responsible for the accuracy of an article’s content and for obtaining any needed permissions to quote or cite copyrighted or manuscript materials or to reproduce illustrations. A copy of permission letters should accompany the manuscript.

Photos and illustrations should be clearly identified and captions provided. Rare or sole copies of documents or photographs should not be submitted. The author will be responsible for securing release or permission for use of graphics which are owned by other publications or museums. Notice of such releases should be submitted with the article so appropriate credit may be printed. Although illustrative materials will be handled with care and will, as a matter of policy, be returned to the author following publication, the Wythe County Historical Society cannot guarantee their safekeeping.

Accepted materials published on a one-time, first right’s basis.

Payment to the author is in copies only. Authors receive three copies of the issue in which their articles appear. Author copies are in addition to membership copies.

A cover letter, mailing, email address, and telephone number should accompany the manuscript. Before sending photos electronically, a publications member should be contacted.
