On the Square
Welcome to On the Square. Following is a list of previously unpublished articles, most written specifically for this web site. New articles will appear on a frequent basis, sometimes written by me and sometimes by guest columnists. In addition to articles I will also reply to questions and address subjects suggested by you. Please send your suggestions for subjects and give me your views. Your input will be essential to the success of this venture.

I also welcome submissions from my fellow chess journalists. If you have a subject of interest, including opinion pieces, let me know. This is a good place for discussing controversial subjects or new ideas. If you have strongly felt opinions that impact correspondence chess or have suggestions for improving our art/sport/science this might be the place to express your views.

Any submissions by other authors will be subject to minor editing. Your views need not correspond closely with mine. Copyright will remain with the author. Articles should directly address some area of chess. Most will address correspondence chess subjects. Articles should entertain, inform or argue a point of view. -- J. Franklin Campbell
