Send submissions to:

Our Editor-in-Chief, Karina Schrengohst at: submissions@fosterembry.com.

Basically, you will hear from us either way. Due to the care we take with every submission, please allow six to eight weeks before you send us a gentle reminder.

FAQs:

How do I submit my work for consideration? 

Polish your work and then have someone look it over for things you may have missed. When its ready, send us an email with the above requested information: submissions@fosterembry.com. We only accept email submissions. 


How long will it be before I, the author, can expect a response? 

Six to eight weeks.


What if it has been six to eight weeks and I have not heard from you? 

Please send our submissions team a gentle nudge to remind them you are waiting: submissions@fosterembry.com.


Does it matter what font I use?  

We request Times New Roman, however if you choose not to heed our request please ensure you do not use anything creative, like Comic Sans. While interesting fonts may be fun, they are not appropriate at this stage.


Do I have to donate part of my royalties to charity? 

No, you do not. We encourage it, however. We are here on this planet together. Let's act like it.
