Fees

To save you some time, I do not currently charge or pay for submissions. I offer you a potential place to get published. As a teacher, I can give you writing tips, if you ask for them. Right now, my advice is free.

  • Include links to two Always Write posts.
  • Zero errors – grammar, spelling, typing

  • Use personal examples and anecdotes to clarify your points.

    1. Very interesting poetry, Lady V. Submit me your ides for a post, though. Just the poetry would not be enough. You could include background behind a poem, talk about the style, the history of the style, different styles of poetry with samples of each, just as a few suggestions.
