How to submit to The Storyletter | April 2022
XPress emails will be paywalled moving forward. This post is open in order to bring clarity to the submission process. Thank you! ~ WM
We Did It!!
I’ve been celebrating on social media a ton, so I’ll keep it brief. I just want to thank everyone for being so supportive of this giant experiment that I’ve undertaken in an attempt to bypass legacy industries to create a new digital pathway to success for independent writers and creators. There’s a lot that needs to be developed in order to take the company to the next level, but that’s where each of you come in. If you have ideas or suggestions that you believe could improve The Storyletter, I’d love to hear them. We may be independent, but that doesn’t mean we have to work alone. The whole point is to make this platform work for you, so if it’s failing in that simple aspect, then changes will be made. Is there something you would like to see happen with The Storyletter in the near future?
The Storyletter Submission Process
I know many of you are eager to submit, and I’m eager to read your submissions. First things first, have you read the submission guidelines and FAQs? After glancing over the guidelines, you should have a pretty good idea of whether your story will work on The Storyletter or not. If you’re questioning the genre or style, I’d say don’t fret too much. We at The Storyletter will read anything speculative in nature, so bring on your “weird” and your “cool” and your “spooky” stories. The weirder, cooler, and/or spookier they are, the better!
Next step is to subscribe for free to The Storyletter Substack!
Once you’ve read the guidelines, and you’ve subscribed, then your final step is to submit using this button below:
Optional XPress Membership
Something to consider before submitting your story is whether you want to upgrade from a free subscription to become an XPress member. This will allow access to our private Discord and unlock a whole host of advanced services. Your subscription (at only $2.50/m or $25/year during 2022) will directly fund all of the work that goes into supporting writers and readers such as yourself. All newcomers, WELCOME! We’re excited to have you on board!
New Submission Form Out Now!
After you’ve subscribed, you’ll be getting an email from The Storyletter with all of the details on how to submit or upgrade to an XPress membership. The submission form should be fairly simple and if you follow all of the instructions it’ll walk you through everything we need to get you exactly where you want to be: published on The Storyletter!
If you have any questions, don’t be afraid to ask. This process is all very new and experimental as we develop a cohesive and seamless strategy to publish your work. I’m really excited to begin reading your stories and getting to know you. Are you interested in submitting to The Storyletter? Are there any significant roadblocks preventing you from doing so? I’m eagerly awaiting your stories, comments and questions. Thanks again! ~ WM
