Writer's Guidelines

The focus of The California Territorial Quarterly (formerly known as the Dogtown Territorial Quarterly) is factual, substantiated California history from the early 1800s through the turn of the 20th century and beyond.

All stories are intended to be well-researched, factual, interesting and documented with supporting end notes and/or bibliographies. Primary sources are preferred.

All stories we accept go through a review process by our historical advisors who are familiar with the topic prior to publication. Click Here for Historical Advisor's Biographies
