Frequently Asked Questions
Is submitting my story abstract a guarantee that my story will be accepted?
Abstract submissions are not a guarantee for acceptance. You will be in the first stage of review.
What can I expect after submitting my abstract?
We will review abstracts on a monthly basis. Regardless of the decision, you will be contacted.
Can I submit an abstract for a story that's appeared elsewhere?
Yes, but please obtain all permissions prior to submitting. If your story abstract is accepted, you will be expected to include links or other attribution language with the completed story.
If my story abstract is accepted, will you provide editing services for my story?
We request that you will edit or have your story edited as much as possible, including grammar, spelling, and syntax. We will provide writing guidelines and light content editing.
Will you require images for my story?
Yes. Where possible, "real" imagery is best! If selected, you will be asked to submit all imagery you'd like included with the story. This will include your own high-resolution photo. Keep in mind that if your accepted story includes students or is submitted on behalf of students, you will be asked to include student high-resolution photos as well.
