If you would like your work to be featured in The Square, please take a look at our submissions guidelines and send any ideas or contributions to the Editor for our consideration.

Submissions

First of all, we would Like to thank you for considering submitting articles for publication in THE SQUARE MAGAZINE.

As of 6th Jan 2020, THE SQUARE MAGAZINE is published by ONID Limited registered in England.

Since it was first published in March 1975, THE SQUARE MAGAZINE has had a reputation as being an educational and inspirational publication for those who are looking for more in-depth Masonic knowledge.

It is the publisher’s aim to build on this solid success of the publication and expand the readership internationally to all Freemasons, using internet communications and modern publication technology.

It is important to understand, that by using leading edge technology to publish the magazine, and employing modern design skills in the presentation, the information is still focused on Masonic knowledge, which is as relevant today as it was when the Freemasonry was first conceived.

PUBLICATION SCHEDULE

The magazine will be published on a monthly basis, in a digital only format and provided free of charge to our readers.

The publication will carry commercial advertising to offset the running costs of the publication.

For those existing contributors, who have previously submitted articles on a quarterly basis, you may continue to do so.

Should you have three articles to submit quarterly, then we will consider printing one each month.

As a rule, there is no publishing deadline unless you are proposing to submit a time sensitive article. In which case we ask you to contact the editorial team in advance so they can make suitable preparations.
