OWN Generation Submission Guidelines

OWN Generation

Submissions are currently open.

We are looking for meaningful original content. Do you have something that you want to share with the rest of the world? Submit it to us today. 

We accept both fiction and nonfiction as well as visual or audio content and are open to a wide variety of subjects, but we are also particularly interested in themes surrounding family, friendships, relationships, happiness, community, and the pursuit of dreams.

While we don’t require a cover letter, please let us know what your work is all about.

All submissions must be made through this form. Work sent via email will not be entertained.

Once you’ve submitted your work, you’ll receive an automated response via email. However, this doesn’t mean that all submissions will be published. Your work will still be reviewed by the editorial team. As we are a very lean team, please understand that we will not be able to update you on the status of your submission. We will, however, inform you via email once your work has been published.

We accept work even if it has been published elsewhere, but please make sure that this doesn’t go against any existing agreement you might already have with other publishers or platforms. If you wish to withdraw your submission, please send an email with the subject “OWN Generation: Withdrawal of Submission” and the details of your work to [email protected]

Copyright of your work belongs to you, but please note that by submitting it to OWN Academy, you are giving us permission to publish it on the website as well as to repurpose it across its other platforms for marketing campaigns.

We do not keep work that will not be published. As soon as we make that decision, we will delete it from our archives within six months, so please make sure that you have copies of your own work.
