As Voices editor, I welcome article submissions on various subjects pertaining to the field of mental health and healing arts.

We are part of an ever-changing profession that requires us to stay informed and educated about new advances and discoveries in the field. We are also a community that brings together experienced and knowledgeable professionals and newcomers who have much to offer concerning mental health, psychotherapy, expressive arts, law and ethics, and much more. 

Share your knowledge with your professional community by writing for Voices, our LA-CAMFT Newsletter.

You are invited to submit articles, 300-1000 words in length, to Lynne Azpeitia, Voices Editor at  newsletter@lacamft.org. See guidelines below.

We welcome first person pieces as well as research findings, and topics of interest to our field. We can also use writers to cover our various events.

If you would like to be on the newsletter team as a writer, proofreader, or something else, please contact me at the email address above.

Upcoming Voices Newsletters Submission Deadlines
January 2020 edition December 1

  LA-CAMFT Publishing Guidelines for Voices

  • All submissions are DUE by the 1ST of each month.
    • Around the 15th of each month, you will receive the editor’s call for articles for the next edition of VOICES.
    • This editor’s call will allow contributors to have up to 2 weeks to put together all the material for submission by the 1st of the month.
    • Around the 25th of each month, you will receive the editor’s second and last call for articles, reminding contributors to submit completed articles by the first should they wish to be included in VOICES.
    • In this last call for submissions, the editor will include a list of the content planned for the next edition of VOICES.This editorial list will note submissions received as well as submissions expected but not yet received and which must be received by the 1st in order to be included.
    • Any submissions received after the 1st, will be included in the following month's edition of VOICES.
  • ARTICLES are 300–1000 word submissions by LA-CAMFT members, sponsors, speakers, or recognized experts in their field. Only universal file formats, like Word (.doc and docx.) will be accepted as submissions. If an article is submitted in a “.pages” format, it will be returned to the submitter.
  • HYPERLINKS in articles must be individually typed into the body of the article by the writer and must be included at time of submission. It is the responsibility of each writer to “type in” the hyperlink(s) in their own work when the article is submitted. Putting “LIVE LINK” in the body of an article won't work. When multiple links are being included, this must be made clear by the writer as to where each link is to be featured.
  • IMAGES: All personal headshots or images must be attached to an email as either a JPEG, PNG or TIF. Images pasted into an email are notacceptable since the quality of such photos is diminished. Any images received in the body of the email may result in delayed publication of the submission.
  • AUTHOR TAGLINES: Author taglines are a short paragraph of 50 to 75 words after the end of the article in which the author is identified. It includes the author's full name, pertinent professional credentials, a short business description, and website address with a HYPERLINK. Email addresses and phone numbers are not included — the only exceptions are lacamft.org emails. All taglines are limited to 75 words, MAXIMUM.This word count includes the author's name and website.
  • IMAGES OTHER THAN PERSONAL HEADSHOTS. There is an issue about images. When you submit an image other than a personal headshot, you must provide proof of how you obtained that photo. Following is a link that covers the importance of copyright issues, but especially so when it comes to anything “Internet.” (Sued for Copyright Infringement)
  • AN ARTICLE MAY CONTAIN:
    • Helpful tips, strategies, analysis, and other specific useful clinical, educational, business or professional marketing or networking information.
    • A review of literature or arts (reviewer not related to or in business with the creator of the item being reviewed).
  • AN ARTICLE MAY NOT CONTAIN:
    • Reference to commercial products or services being sold or distributed by author;
    • Information that is only useful if the author’s book or other materials are purchased
    • Suggestions that the reader attend the author’s workshop, conference or podcast for more information;
    • Any other material that could be construed as an advertisement, rather than an article;
    • Language that could be construed as defamatory, discriminatory, or offensive.
