How do I suggest a story for Landscape Architecture magazine?
Story proposals (with digital pictures whenever possible; please
do not send original photos or slides with proposals) should be
sent to LAM managing editor Lisa
Speckhardt. We accept story proposals all the time; our editor
reviews them and if he decides to pursue them he'll get in touch.
Unfortunately, because of the volume of proposals we receive, we
can't get back to those we decide against. The best way to assess
what articles we will be interested in is to read a couple issues
of the magazine.
How can I improve my chances of getting my project covered in Landscape Architecture magazine?
ASLA award winners are often covered in LAM, so a good first step
is submitting your project for an ASLA
award. Article proposals should be about projects in which landscape
architects were involved
Who do I need to contact to get an editorial calendar?
If you would like to advertise, you can get a media kit with an editorial calendar from Nyah Miller at 202-216-2335.
If you're interested in submitting article ideas, no editorial calendar is necessary--in fact, we actively discourage people from pitching to our editorial calendar, so we don't distribute it for editorial purposes. See the first question above for more details on how to submit a story proposal.
I saw an article in LAM on a topic that interested me, but I'm not sure
what issue it was in. How can I find it?
If it appeared between 1996-2000, try the online LAM
index. Many local libraries also carry LAM. If you are an ASLA
member, our librarian, Marlene
Koenig (202-216-2354) can help you research articles.
My organization would like to use a photo/image we saw
in LAM. Can you give me permission to do that?
No, we only have one-time rights to all images we use.
You'll need to contact the photographer or artist directly. Photo/image
credits appear on the same page or on the initial page of the article.
LAM does not have contact information for all photographers and
artists, though most should be easily found through searches on
Yahoo or Google.
I want to make multiple copies of an article and distribute
them. Who do I contact for permission?
Articles to be copied for use in classes or for a nonprofit purpose
can receive limited permission based on receipt of a letter or form
detailing the title of the article, what issue it appeared in and
what page numbers it encompasses, how many copies will be made,
and what the intended use is. Credit should be given to LAM magazine
on each copy made. Contact Managing Editor Lisa
Speckhardt, at 202-216-2366 before duplicating any LAM article
How do I get my book reviewed in LAM?
Send a copy of the book to Megan
Ciarfalia, Editorial Assistant. We cannot guarantee that we
will review your book, but we will consider it. Books sent in for
consideration for review will not be returned.
Who should get any press releases for Landscape Architecture
