Story Submission Guidelines

Your story may be edited for length, grammar, or style. Your photographs may be cropped for size, clarity, or style. All submissions are reviewed before going live on the public site and, therefore, may not be available immediately. We cannot publish foul or derogatory language, photographs or references regarding race, religion, gender, etc. Your submission will not be made public if it doesn’t meet our criteria for appropriate submission. Woman Redefined is not able to provide feedback on stories or photographs, accepted or rejected.

We do not collect information from children under the age of 13. You must be 13 or older to submit your story and/or photographs. If you are age 18 or younger, you must have the permission of your parent or guardian to complete your submission.

Word length

Woman Redefined reviews and prefers stories between no longer than 1200 words.

Legal issues

When writing about or photographing others, please state explicitly in your submission to us that you have obtained permission from those in the story or photograph. You must state that this is your own work and the story is true.  You are liable for the content.

Rights

You give Woman Redefined the nonexclusive right to use your story or photograph, while Woman Redefined retains the exclusive right to use the story or photograph and any other submissions in a multi-author platform, communications, or promotional vehicles.

Non-US Submissions

Anyone may submit their story or photograph online, but all stories must be in English or translated into English before submission.

Photo Upload Guidelines

Woman Redefined wants to utilize the best of your photographs. Just like any professional photographer, you need to be accurate and complete with information about the photo(s).

By sending a photo, you certify that you own the photo or have the right to permit Woman Redefined to use and publish this image, and that you understand that all photographs submitted to Woman Redefined may be published, used or distributed in print, electronic, and other media.
