    I just put one in "Staff Review" for ghost stories. Hope that's the right place. Can't wait for them to start coming in!

    Where do you submit articles - for example if I were to write one in response to "Nursing Ghost Stories?" Do you submit articles of all types under the link for "General Articles," which appeared when I clicked on the link above (
    Also - where did you send your article for staff review?

    Thanks for any info, and good luck!!

    I think I submitted my article in the wrong place :smackingf . Revision Required instead of Staff Review, I'm sorry still getting the hang of where everything goes. I don't need to do any changes to it so staff can review it when ready.

    Is there a maximum word count?
  10. by   Joe V
    I suggest keeping it under 1000 words. Anything bigger than that will just be ignored by the readers.

    The best articles are usually around 600 words, formatted (spacing, bold, etc) for easier reading, and have a great intro.
