What kind of writing is usually selected?
The "Fox Sightings" blog on Charlotte's Purpose is a collection of writing focused on positively processing grief after losing a child to stillbirth. We want to learn how you have grown on this grief journey, especially if you have found some uplifting truths along the way. We will not publish heavily political or religious writings. We are interested in the many perspectives of those who love the baby who died- mothers, fathers, grandparents, siblings, and friends.
What are your submission guidelines?
Posts should be original (completely your own work and not published on any other blog or in any other publication), fully finished & edited, and should not exceed 1500 words. By submitting your work to "Fox Sightings", you agree to allow Charlotte's Purpose one-time publication and archival publication rights. Work that is not accepted will not be used in any other way. If you choose to write anonymously, you may submit "Anonymous" as a name in the submission form.
When will I be notified if my proposed post is accepted?
Writer's will typically be notified within two weeks of their submission if it has been accepted. If you do not hear back from Charlotte's Purpose: Fox Sightings after two weeks has passed, please feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If your work is not initially accepted, this does not mean that future pieces won't be considered, it simply means that this piece was not a good fit at this time. Please consider submitting another piece in the future.
Will I be compensated for my writing?
The Fox Sightings Blog does not pay authors for their work, so submissions are voluntary. Please let us know if the original content that you are sending has been published elsewhere and if you have permission to republish it. We will note where it was originally published so as to avoid copyright infringement.
