We never, ever publish hate material. If you are thinking of sending in work that is mean spirited, bashing or demoralizing to anyone in anyway, don't send it.
If your work is rejected remember:
NOTE: Reciprocal arrangements are always nice. If you have a barter idea run it by us!
That is a nice way of making sure that we all do well.
GO FOR IT!
Even if you have never written anything before, but think you have something to share that would be of interest
or benefit to others - SEND IT!
We have some parameters and guidelines set for the type of material we are looking for, but ultimately we
will consider anything that is interesting or funny. Even if it doesn't fit within our current monthly features, we will find a place for it if we like it.
A good rule of thumb:
If you think it is funny, inspiring or thought provoking it probably is.
Don't be reluctant to send work in because you are worried that someone else may not like it. If it is heartfelt and earnest it is probably good.
Also do not let concerns about grammar or perfect writing form slow you down.
We have a team of professional editors who look everything over and make minimal changes if necessary. (Hey! Don't you use that as an excuse to be lazy or send in sloppy work!)
Do not be overly concerned with political correctness. We're not.
We are not that uptight. However we do reserve the right to reject anything that we find offensive
This is extremely rare.
