mathNEWS works entirely on submissions from undergrads and some especially crotchety alumni. We're constantly looking for new writers in order to reduce dependency on crotchety alumni types. In order to encourage more submissions from Mathies, we've come up with this great idea! The "best" submission to each issue this term will win $25 Gift Certificate to HMV. Anyone is eligible! Faculty, alumni, staff, students, even that random guy from Iran!
How do we define "best"? Well, my co-editor and I will put our heads together and our subjective decision will be final. We promise not to choose ourselves, though, nor the editors that are off-stream right now.
We're not particularly choosy here at mathNEWS. Our criteria for publishing material are pretty simple: your article should be informative, interesting, insightful or funny. Long, rambling, pointless material is out. So are in-jokes, rants, and flamebait (i.e. no more articles about the damn exambank).
If you have a modicum of writing skill, feel free to submit. You have many options:
See, isn't that simple? So, in summary, write for mathNEWS, win $25 to HMV! Submissions for the next issue are due at 6:30PM on June 20th.
Congratulations to this issue's winner, FIXME! Contact the editors to claim your prize!
