Is there a deadline for submissions?
No, submissions are open yearlong. However, keep in mind that we publish semiannually. If you would like to be considered for publication during a certain time of year, please send your submission at least two months prior to the publication date announced on our Home page. We aim to publish during the winter and summer months.
When will I be notified if my pieces were accepted?
This depends on the number of submissions we receive, and during what time of the year you submit. We review all submissions at the end of our submission period. This process takes about a month. So if you submit earlier in the submission cycle, you will wait longer (5-6 months) to receive a final email about acceptance. If you do not receive any notification after four months, feel free to send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org asking about the status of your submissions.
Will I receive payment if my submissions are published?
No; unfortunately, Credo Espoir does not receive funding to pay its published authors and artists.
What is the blog post opportunity?
We offer all accepted contributors the option to publish on the Credo Espoir blog. The blog is not interview style. Rather, you can talk about something you strongly believe in, your inspiration for your work, or simply a true story about yourself. For examples, take a look at our website to see posts from our previous contributors. More details will be given upon acceptance of your works.
Will you accept non-digital submissions?
No, all submissions must be sent through our online submission form.
If my submissions were rejected during one publication round, can I submit them again?
Yes, you may resubmit a revised version of your submission. However, please title this submission Category_RevisedSubmissionName in your submission form.
