FAQ

  • When will my submission be posted?
    We cannot guarantee a specific post date. We try to publish articles & artwork from newest to oldest. We greatly appreciate your patience.
  • Why wasn’t my submission posted?
    We are very particular about our format guidelines. It’s likely that it didn’t follow the format we are looking for.
  • Is there anything I should avoid writing about?
    We are always looking for posts that cover everything from mental health to mental illness. However, we do advise that you avoid flat out stating your takeaway message in your post. We also typically reject articles that over generalize or give oversimplified advice.
