Submission Guidelines

Interested in Writing for FamilyFans.com? 

If so, then there are a few things you should know:

  • FamilyFans.com is a non-commercial magazine, fully funded by an ongoing grant from Nappaland Communications Inc.

  • Because this is a non-commercial publication, FamilyFans.com pays only a modest amount for content contributions to this e-magazine.

  • In spite of the low pay, our editors continue to demand the highest quality of writing for all articles and reviews in our magazine. Revisions are sometimes necessary. And a positive, cheerful attitude is a must.

If above information hasn't scared you away yet, and you still think you've got something worthwhile to contribute to Family Fans, then we'll be happy to consider your submission. Please note:

  • All submissions MUST be queried first. We will automatically delete any full manuscripts that were not queried. And, of course, NEVER send us an article as a file attachment as we will never download a file from someone we don't know. 

  • We are looking primarily for creative, fun ideas for families.

  • Feature articles should be helpful, entertaining, and focused on helping parents in some way. They should not be didactic, preachy, or boring.

  • If you want to write product reviews, be aware that those are done by assignment only. You'll have to show sample reviews in your chosen category (Movies, Books, Comics, DVD, Music) and then wait for an assignment to submit. FamilyFans.com also does not pay for any expenses, so you'll have to acquire your own movie passes, books, comics, etc. in order to review them in this e-magazine.

  • To send a query, use our Contact Us page. Tell us about yourself and to give a brief summary of your article and/or product review interest. Be sure to include your email address so we can contact you if we like your query.

  • If we are interested in seeing more, we will contact you via email. If we opt not to publish your article or review, then you just won't hear from us. If you haven't received an email response to your query within 30 days, it means we've decided not to publish your submission (sorry!). PLEASE DO NOT SEND MULTIPLE QUERIES OR REQUESTS FOR UPDATES FOR THE SAME ARTICLE / REVIEW. If we want to publish, you'll hear from us within 30 days. If not, you won't hear from us. Sounds mean, we know, but the volume of submissions we receive require us to budget our time wisely, and sending out gobs of rejection letters just isn't the way we want to spend our days.

Still interested in working with those crabby, demanding, cheap folks at FamilyFans.com? J

If so, then you've got guts. 

If you've got the talent to match, then we can't wait to hear from you. Our Contact Us page awaits you. 

Blessings!
