WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR FORMER NEWSLETTER, YESTERDAY, TODAY, AND TOMORROW?
In 2015, after careful consideration, Mount Vernon retired its longtime membership newsletter, Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow and replaced it with Mount Vernon Magazine. This new format allows us to better showcase the exceptional scholarship and interpretation taking place on the estate every day. Throughout the transition, Mount Vernon staff has worked to ensure that the new format remains a cost-efficient way of sharing the latest news from the estate with our friends and members. We encourage you to give us your feedback on this new publication by taking our survey or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
WHEN IS MOUNT VERNON MAGAZINE PUBLISHED?
The first issue of Mount Vernon Magazine was published in September 2015. Subsequent triennial issues will appear in April, September and December.
WHO WRITES THE ARTICLES IN MOUNT VERNON MAGAZINE?
Mount Vernon seeks out top historians to provide our feature articles. Spotlights, vignettes and news articles are written by our Mount Vernon staff and affiliated fellows.
CAN I SUBMIT AN ARTICLE FOR PUBLICATION?
Since we work closely with historians to ensure that our feature articles correspond to areas where the Mount Vernon has been actively involved in research, we do not publish unsolicited manuscripts of this type. You are welcome to submit story ideas for other departments in the magazine — objects to examine and aspects of the estate to explore — to email@example.com. However, due to space constraints, long lead times and other considerations, our ability to accommodate suggestions may be limited.
I'D LIKE MORE INFORMATION ABOUT SOMETHING I READ IN THE MAGAZINE. WHERE SHOULD I LOOK?
Almost every story has more fascinating details than we can find space to include. Look for icons in the print edition that indicate when stories have video, photo galleries or other collateral materials online. If you have a specific question, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Try to reference the article or page that inspired your inquiry, so we can pass it along to the appropriate staff member or historian.
I BELIEVE I FOUND AN ERROR IN MOUNT VERNON MAGAZINE, HOW SHOULD I REPORT IT?
We work hard to keep the magazine accurate, but mistakes do occasionally happen. Please let us know of any inadvertent errors by writing to email@example.com.
HOW DO I DISPUTE A HISTORICAL CHARACTERIZATION OR ASSESSMENT?
All of the historians featured as authors in our magazine are passionate supporters of Mount Vernon’s mission who provide their time and talents free of charge. While we provide them with overall guidance on the scope of articles, the details of each piece are the result of their own independent research. Mount Vernon’s own experts ensure factual accuracy of each piece, but the interpretation of those facts is the domain of the individual by-lined author. We recognize that our knowledgeable members may, based on their own reading and research, have opinions that differ from our authors and are happy to pass along thoughtful comments or questions.
I BELONG TO ANOTHER GROUP WHOSE ACTIVITIES WOULD INTEREST MOUNT VERNON MEMBERS. CAN THE MAGAZINE HELP SHARE THIS NEWS?
The scope of activities taking place on the estate each day will always remain the top priority of Mount Vernon Magazine. Although its pages will also include information on events and projects for which George Washington’s Mount Vernon or the Ladies’ Association has been a contributing partner alongside other entities, the magazine does not typically include news briefs from outside our own initiatives. If you do have a news item that you feel may be of interest, you may e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org for possible inclusion in our blog and social media channels.
