FAQs

Do you have any guidelines to share around whether or how to ask for feedback if a piece is rejected? 
This is a GREAT question. In our case, we don’t necessarily have time to give feedback on each and every post. I would suggest doing a little investigative work first.
1) Check out the site and their Facebook feed and determine if your post was really a good fit.
2) Read your post out loud. How did it sound? Was a lot of editing needed? Did it ramble? Was your attention on during the entire piece?
3) Was this a post for a global audience or was it more of a journal entry? It is terribly hard to turn away good writing that fits into this category, however, we invest a lot of money into each post and we want it to benefit the writer, our audience and our company.

We hope that writers go through this process before submitting to us, oftentimes, it is one of the previously stated issues. This is another great question for our private Facebook groups. If you have been accepted before, but you feel like you are missing the boat, address the group.

What are the biggest pet peeves editors have about writers?

Multiple submissions. THERE I said it. We get really frustrated when we see 3,4…SEVEN submissions from a single person. Yes, you are awesome, but at this point we want to start charging you for looking at your work and we open your files with a sigh. Submit your best. If that is declined, do not follow it up with two more. Really evaluate your work before you submit it. 

Are there any A+ contributor behaviors that will get an editor excited the next time they see a submission come in from that writer? 
Well-edited posts that fit our mission and from writers who are active in our community: chatting in our groups, on our FB feed and sharing often. We don’t expect this every day, but we are definitely aware of those who are involved. Also? We LOVE posts that are really current and addressing issues from a unique perspective.
