As a benefit of fast publishing, your stories will start earning income and finding more readers quickly.

Please caption your photos and ensure that that they are not copyrighted: either belong to you or from free sources. Not captioning and using copyrighted photos waste our editors’ precious time and cause delays in publishing your stories.

Please Note that not captioning images and using copyrighted photos will lead to the rejection of stories.

Not Captioning and Using Copyright Photos Will Lead to Rejection of Stories

We are sorry for the publishing delays. Thank you for your understanding and patience. Your stories will be published eventually.

You may also consider self-publishing as we accept them. However, draft submissions might bring more readers, so it is up to you.

We accepts both draft and self-published stories. However, editors give priority to drafts as these stories need to find readers, waiting in the queue for a while.
