THE ADOPTION CONSTELLATION MAGAZINE
Unlike any other adoption-related magazine, Adoption Mosaic’s The Adoption Constellation magazine represents and speaks to all members of our diverse adoption community. The purpose of The Adoption Constellation magazine is to help build and support bridges between adoption constellation members, with the ultimate goal of improving our adoption experiences.

The Adoption Constellation is a publication of Adoption Mosaic, a registered non-profit organization based in Portland, Oregon. Adoption Mosaic is committed to honoring the histories and experiences of all whose lives have been affected by adoption, and The Adoption Constellation amplifies our diverse voices through the quarterly publication of articles, interviews, and reviews.
We welcome submissions of written work and photographs from all corners of the adoption community. Please send all submissions (except for Letters to the Editor; see below) as attached Word documents (double-spaced, 12-point font) to email@example.com. Specific guidelines for various aspects of the magazine are as follows:
- Feature articles and interviews generally run between 1250 and1500 words. If you have an idea for a feature article or an interview, please query Vicki Reitenauer, Editor, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Include a brief (±50 words) biographical statement and list of other publications, if applicable.
- “The View from Here” is a 300-word first-person essay offering insights into issues facing the adoption community from a variety of perspectives around the adoption constellation. Themes for this column will be announced in each issue of the magazine, beginning with our Fall 2012 issue. Feel free to email email@example.com for a list of upcoming themes and the deadline for submissions. Include a brief (±50 words) biographical statement with your submission.
- Reviews (300-500 words) of current books, films, television shows, and other media may be sent directly to the editor at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Adoption Constellation honors the full diversity of perspectives on the issues affecting the adoption community and intends to publish writing that reflects this same honoring spirit. Our editorial practices strive to honor each of our submitters, as well. We view submissions and our response to them as being rooted in relationship, and we intend to operate from that stance in all of our communications about your written work.
If you have questions about submissions and other content-related issues, email Vicki Reitenauer at firstname.lastname@example.org. For questions about subscriptions, contact Shelise Gieseke at email@example.com.
Thank you for your interest in being a vital part of this conversation. This magazine wouldn’t exist without you. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
