How will I know if my work has been accepted? 

Bright Lite is a small publication that receives hundreds of submissions every month. If your work has been accepted, we will try to get back to you within four to six week. Thanks for your patience, in advance! If you do not hear from us, if means that we were unable to use your work in the particular issue, but please keep trying! There will be many more chances for us publish your work.

How long does it have to be?

We have no minimum length but please try to keep written submissions under 3000 words.

What happens after we accept your written piece? 

We’ll send you a contributor’s agreement along with a parent or guardian’s release form to grant us permission to publish your work. We work very closely with our contributors and hope to inspire you to make your work the best it can possibly be.

What happens after we accept your visual piece? 

Since we are a magazine geared towards girls under the age of eighteen, we require a signed release from anyone in a photo or video that has been accepted. This is to make sure we have written consent from your parents that says it is OK for your image to appear in Bright Lite.
