Questions on Submission Requests? We've Got You Covered!
Does this change how I submit my work?
Yes and No. The original submission process (start with the album and select where you want to submit it to) isn't changing. You will notice the change when you are looking at Requests and Editor Profile pages. When you click the submit button in either of these places you will then be directed to select the album that you want to submit.
So what does that really mean for me?
Can I still submit to more than one publication at a time?
Absolutely! If you want to submit to more than one non-exclusive publication at the same time, start your submission by clicking on the Submissions Tab. From there, click on Create Submission and follow the prompts. This is the process you are familiar with if you have ever created a submission through Two Bright Lights.
Can you remind me how to find submission requests?
Sure! All you need to do is click the Requests Tab. There you will be able to filter by publication name, type and exclusivity policy, as well as flag your favorites. To submit to one, just click the submit button and you're on your way.
Where do I find the Editor Profile pages and what information is there?
To access these profiles, click on the avatar in the top right-hand corner of the screen and then choose the Community Tab. From there, click Browse by Publication to find the profile pages for the publications you'd like to learn more about. Each publisher provides information about what they're looking for, any submission requirements that they have, as well as details about their submission response and publication times.
We hope that you love these improvements as much as we do! Share your feedback with us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We can’t wait to hear from you!
