From the Lighthouse Digest guidelines:

Through the pages of Lighthouse Digest, our readers learn about current happenings at lighthouses and what is being done to preserve them. We also write about historical events that happened at lighthouses, publish a list of endangered lighthouses, write about people that lived at or grew up at lighthouses, etc.

We are looking for short stories, either fact or fiction that revolve around a lighthouse. The story must state if it is a work of fiction or based on fact. Stories should be 750 to 1500 words, although longer stories will be considered. Pictures and/or sketches with the story always help to tell the story. Stories made be edited for space, fact checking, and suitability. All stories must be saved as a .txt file or a MS Word document (.doc or .docx). Do not indent paragraphs, simply return (or enter) at the end of paragraphs and let each paragraph text wrap. Photographs must be glossy and color if possible. Vintage photos are encouraged. You may send text documents and photographs by mail or by email.
