When are submission deadlines?
For each published issue, the deadline falls on the first of the month preceding it, i.e., November issue is 10/1. December issue is 11/1, etc.
What tips can you offer someone submitting the first time?
Be familiar with our publication, format, style and content before submitting. We give preference to and encourage subscribers to contribute. Write from your highest self and omit low vibration political commentary from your submission.
Can I publish my article on my own after it appears in the Almanac?
As a courtesy, we ask all writers to honor exclusivity of their published piece with New Earth Almanac until the month after their contributed article has appeared. We emphasize original content over previously published work. If your submission has already been published in some form (including on social media), it's required to disclose that information up front as well as provide the link with your submission. Here is the copy and link to accompany an article after the one-month grace period: "A version of this article was originally published in the New Earth Almanac (www.newearthalmanac.com)."
Can I suggest photos or images to accompany my piece?
We allow image suggestions (up to three per piece, unless previously discussed). They must be original photographs taken by yourself or someone who provides permission in writing at the time of your article submission OR are source-identified, free and public use/domain images. If wishing to include free-use images, please send LINKS to their original download site and DO NOT attach the images in your email. We appreciate it if all image suggestions are included by the submission deadline.
What happens after I submit my article?
Be mindful that after your submission is received and in the running for publication consideration, we endeavor to work with each writer to bring their article to final draft as soon as possible. This includes an initial review and feedback round, which may require edits and additions made by the writer with a short turnaround expected. After the second draft is received, your article goes to copyediting. We send contributors their final, published version via email. (Tip: Be prompt. Hold awareness that your level of timeliness--for better or worse--directly impacts both a multi-step process and others who are devoted to bringing your words to our pages.)
What happens if my submission is selected for publication?
We will be in touch about setting up a Contributor Profile on our site that will remain up during the month your story appears. A color photograph of yourself (headshot preferred) and an up to 200 character bio are required to be profiled on the site. If the requirments aren't met or one isn't set up in time, your byline will appear in the body of the article and then filed under the Guest Contributor profile page. Note: Who appears where on our Contributor page is organized automatically by number of articles contributed.
Who has the final say in what is published?
The New Earth Almanac has final say over all content we publish. We reserve the right to remove or revoke pieces from publishing at any time.
