NEW SUBMISSION LENGTH CRITERIA: 500 to 800 words
As we are reminded by Liane, "We can't keep doing the same thing and expect different results...." With this in mind, the length of OMTimes article submissions is being reduced!
The reduction comes because we crossed the realm of 90% mobile readers, and they usually have to read articles between things on their iPads, and phones. Articles of smaller length will also offer us greater ability to provide audio versions that will fit better into our more mobile size.
We are asking for a favor, especially of our seasoned, Spotlight Writers... to check your most recent submissions that may not have been notified of selection yet, or any others you have in your queue. See if any of them may be made to fit this new size parameter of 500 to 800 words. Check your "inclusive voice," make sure they are proofed and print-ready with your bios included, and please provide an extra article or two that fit this new size. Of course, the sooner you get these into the community, the better. Feel free to flag them with special words: "Here is my Extra Submission" or "Hey, I REVISED this for you!!" (or words to that effect) so we know you are providing these as additional shares of your bountiful talents.
We are eagerly planning for the coming months into the summer, so topics related to the many things the summer solstice/season brings, such as holidays and special festivals, etc., are welcomed!! Please let Regina, Lisa, or me know if you have any questions. Thanks for your time, and we look forward to hearing from you soon. ~ Blessings!
