Frequently asked questions
Which type of stories you’re looking for?
Stories that matter. Stories that tell something meaningful. Whether it be a feature story, photo essay, travelogue, case study, fiction, or documentary, it should cover important issues or events, be inspiring, or represent interesting opinions.
Can anyone submit any stories, or do you select stories based on certain criteria?
Anyone can post anything to their portfolio unless it interferes with our Content Guidelines. However, submissions for licensing are carefully considered by our editors.
Do you have an editor who proofreads stories or do creators take full responsibility for their work?
Our editors can accept or reject your story submitted for licensing. They do not edit your story. If the story is rejected, they can provide brief reasons and recommendations. When you do not submit your story for licensing, it appears on your portfolio immediately and editors do not read it.
What type of writers are welcome?
You don’t even have to be a writer. You can be an artist, athlete, filmmaker, photographer, environmentalist, scientist, or average Joe, but you should have something to tell and you should be able to tell it in a clean, coherent, and captivating way.
