Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How do I know if my work has been submitted?

A: Once you submit the form, we will receive your submission. You can send us an email at to confirm your submission. 

Q: When will I find out if my work has been rejected or accepted?

A: If your work is accepted, you will hear from us via email when it is published. You will be able to find it on our website. If it is not accepted, we will invite you to revise and resubmit. If you don’t hear from us within twelve weeks, you are free to submit your work elsewhere.

Q: Why should I submit to Scribere?

A: Scribere was created was because of the founding editor’s frustration with the nontransparency of publications for youth. Scribere is different: we have a transparent publishing process, which means that authors will be kept informed about the status of their submissions.

Scribere is completely free, for readers and authors who have access to the internet. We do not charge any fees for submissions or publications, and there is no subscription. You can read your amazing work right off of our website!

Q: What rights am I giving to Scribere when my work is published?

A: You are giving Scribere first publishing rights, or the right publish your work in full (whether that is all at once, or serialized over multiple issues.)
