- Please include a 2-3 sentence bio at the end of your submission. If there is no bio, we will not accept your submission for publication. If your article is published we will request a jpg image via email.
Grammar and Spelling:
Our editorial team gives each article a thorough copy edit for grammar, spelling, formatting, style, and more. The process is expedited when authors make an effort to proofread and apply proper grammar and spelling to article drafts.
If you use FireFox, Grammarly is a great software to use while writing to help with pesky issues like spelling and proper grammar.
Does your writing have an appropriate introduction and conclusion?
