Rejected for being an autobiography?

Back in October I wrote an article for a request which wanted fun, playful, and magazine style articles about artists. So I wrote a piece about a new geek fandom artists who is up and coming into the art scene. (The request expired by the time they reviewed the article over a week later after the in...

Re: awkward wording!

I suspect that the editors are bouncing back these articles for "awkward wording" for a grammatical aspect and also to improve their bottom line. I suspect they are less worried about spiders and SEO than readability and smooth text. Therefore, being even more of a perfectionist than the e...

I've gotten the same rejection response recently. Now I am on a hunt to create a checklist for any possible mistakes I could make.

Re: Capitalization question

Like Jak said, maybe its refers to one small mistake within the article. I got a two sentence rejection about misuse of capitols (in about a 200 word rejection "essay" only to find one errant capitalized first word of a sentence and no other errant capitals or forgotten capitals. When I re...

Writer Guidelines Printable Book (and a small request)

What would be extraordinarily helpful to writers here is an all inclusive guidelines book which we can print out. The Writer Guidelines Book should include a page or two of general checklist items of things found within the book, for writers to reference when editing their article. I'd go as far as ...

Hallo, It's hard to guess without seeing an article extract. It's only a guess but I've had a rejection in the past because I didn't explicitly re-state the sub-heading in the body of the para.

Paragraphs must be able to stand apart from their subheading

I had an article (actually ten articles) accepted and approved for over a month and I voluntarily took it down to make changes to some long, but not run-on, sentences.
