Deadline Policy

The current policy for articles submitted to Paydirt are as follows.

All articles must be submitted on or before midnight of deadline day.

Exceptions to the deadline day are:
  • if you inform the Paydirt Editor of the delay prior to the day of deadline
  • if you were assigned an article to write by the Paydirt Editor that falls after the deadline
  • if you are Paydirt article writing staff, this policy does not directly affect you
This policy will be enforced to prevent any unexpected work for our copyeditor or layout designer to do between deadlines and the time needed to make the newspaper for press.

This does not mean we discourage you from writing for Paydirt, this is to ensure that there is an appropriate balance of workload for the staff to produce a quality newspaper. If you believe you are not going to make our deadlines, it does not hurt to send an email a day before the deadline and you may be granted an extension.
