Writing for Topical Time & ATA
Writing can be both a rewarding experience and a challenging escapade. An experienced collector once said, “If you want to discover how much you don’t know about a topic, write an article for a philatelic journal.”
The booklet available by clicking on the image to the right provides direction for writing and preparing images for your article. Since we enjoy a visually-rich hobby, great care and scrutiny are directed at the scans, illustrations, and photographs necessary to communicate the details of our topics and the narration of our hobby.
