Acceptance/Rejection

We hate to break hearts, but whether we accept or reject your piece, we will send a notification to you within two weeks.

IF it is a rejection, we may spice it up with a little sarcasm. Hearts don’t break here.

IF it is an acceptance, the link will be sent in an email to the author on the day of publication.

 

Remuneration

We can’t pay just yet but we will give a small gift to the writer with the most engaging content every month. By the “most engaging content”, we mean the piece with the highest number of shares, comments and views.
