We welcome authors of all ages and experience levels!
Whether you’re six or ninety-six, have a best selling book or have just written your first poem, send it in!
If you have a story or poem to share, please submit it to one of the categories below. Click on the teal underlined category name, it should open up a pre-addressed e-mail for you. If it doesn’t please just put: SUBMISSION FOR… and the appropriate category in the subject line. Send it to firstname.lastname@example.org . (You may receive a notice asking you to reply to our spam filter – just hit reply and your e-mail will go through.)
Make sure you include the title and your author name as you’d like it to appear. You may also include your e-mail contact info, a short author bio (one – two paragraphs max) , a favorite quote and/or a link to another personal website or professional website where your work or another worthy cause is featured.
You are welcomed to include photos specifically related to your story. We prefer to receive them in .jpg format but we can convert most others except .cdr files. We cannot send the photos in our e-mail distribution, however, they will be featured with your story on our website.
Please try to adhere to the word counts but note that the word count listed after each category is approximate. It’s ok if it goes over or under a little bit. These are guidelines based on what holds our readers’ attention and the amount of space we have in our issues. If it’s a great story but goes way over the suggested word count for a specific category, try to break it down into sequences… Part 1 of 2, Part 2 of 2, etc. Make sure you include how many sequences there are so we can make sure we’ve got the ENTIRE story. J
Any editing you can do on your own as far as spell checks, punctuation, grammar, etc., will be greatly appreciated. However you don’t have to be a professional writer. If you’ve got a story to tell and have never written before that’s OK. Just talk into the page and we’ll do the rest. Just make sure it’s positive!
Although we love to share all upbeat material and stories, we cannot feature work with an unauthorized copyright so please don’t send anything you know is from Chicken Soup for the Soul, Guidepost, etc., unless you have permission to redistribute it.
Many of SFPNN’s stories are based on spiritual material, however, we do not tell our readers what religion to practice. With a global distribution, we have readers of all faiths so your submissions should have a universal theme.
No commercial, sales, marketing or business promotions please! ABSOLUTELY NO SPAMMING! We will report those who abuse these links!
All of our authors work on a volunteer basis.
Thanks for contributing to Sir Froggie’s Positive News Network!
