When asking for contributions to my online mag which, incidentally, is made 
with Scribus, I issue the prospective writer/author with a 'press-pack', a 
short list of acceptable typographic formats, file formats, language levels 
(Oxford/australian/colloquial) etc.

Most of them are quite happy to have decisions made for them and options 
stripped away, leaving them to concentrate on content rather than trying to 
impress with formatting.
