Relating to Humans





Are you interested in sharing your Relating to Humans experiences and encounters through your creative non-fiction, fiction, reviews, poetry, photography, or art in any of its many facets with a large and growing audience?

If so, please submit your original and polished work, which may include photos and sound files/video embeds, by selecting one of the Features listed below and posting your work via the page’s “Say it like you mean it” comment section, as you would a reply to any typical page or post. In addition to being published immediately on the selected Feature page, articles that are well-written and convey a strong message may be selected and profiled within the Blog and/or Newsletter feature. You can see a list of all Relating to Humans articles selected for profile here.



While not all submitted articles will be selected to be published on the Blog or within Newsletter Love, all submissions will remain published on the Feature page it was submitted to for the length of one cycle of three (3) months*, after which the submission will be moved to the Archives.

Please limit submissions to one (1) per Feature per cycle*. In other words, you can have one submission at a time on each Feature.

If you would like to submit new work to a Feature you already have work published to, please advise the Site Master & Purveyor of Fine Goods & Services (if you have no idea who that is, see this) via the Contact page that you wish to submit new work and he will archive it so you can submit your new work.

Please include a title at the beginning and, if applicable, a link to your website at the end of each submitted work.

The shorter the submission the better, but please strive to keep the word count below 500. This leaves more space for other Contributors, and, besides, in this day and age it’s hard to get folks to read anything longer than a tweet.

If you have work you would like to submit but would like it to be reviewed prior to publishing, send it to the Site Master & Purveyor of Fine Goods & Services via the Contact page and I   he will review it for you and provide his feedback.

Only completed work may be submitted. Links to work outside this website, other than in supplement to the completed work submitted, may be deleted.

Please identify “Trigger Warnings,” if applicable, at the beginning of the submission before the title to alert others of sensitive or potentially disturbing content.

All submitted work must be in compliance with this site’s Terms of Use.
