How Long Submissions Take to be Approved

December 6, 2009
By Anonymous

It seems that when you submit something, it takes weeks, perhaps even months for it to be approved. Everything is always published on the website, is it not? Has anyone ever received a letter saying your article was not approved and will never will be? I don't think so. Why not just post everything up right away so we no longer have to wait and wait to see our work up online.

I don't want to fight, I hate drama, but could you be a little bit nicer? Comments aren't as formal e.i, you didn't capitalize anything. See, we don't try as hard. ^.^

(Sorry, I know you were probably joking but it doesn't read that way first time you see it).

they sometimes don't post stuff if it is of an "inappropriate" subject or if it uses an excessive amount of bad words

hope that helps! :)

Poems tend to take longer to publish, whereas nonfiction stories don't take long at all. I think it takes so long so someone can look through and make sure you don't use innappropriate content. And there are more poems than nonfiction stories submitted, so...

if you look at the top right corner of your screen, where it says logged in as ___, below that there's a button for 'submit my work.' you have to go there, the otehr place doesn't understand you're logged in. hope that helps!

I am new to Teen Ink, and I was wondering, how long does it take to get your piece approved? I am dying to know how people feel about my piece, and it seems like forever!
