1.) Once your finished form is received (or once your interview is conducted if you ordered a phone interview), we will begin writing your story.
2.) Upon completion of the story, the first draft will be sent for your review, where you are welcome to add/change/remove parts of the story as you see fit. You are limited to ONE story edit per order, so make sure you send any changes you would like as one request. Please also send those in some type of word document so we can open it and make the changes from there as well.
3.) We can use up to 5 images for your story. Please send those as soon as possible. The final deadline is when you send back your edits. You can submit photos directly to firstname.lastname@example.org.
4.) The story will then be transformed into a front-page design and emailed to you. That JPEG file is sized at 13×19 inches and 300 dpi for your use, and it will be the final copy of the story.
5.) With the digital image option, that JPEG file can be taken to Staples, FedEx Office, Office Max and most places where photos are printed. It can also be printed and shipped by online print outlets. You’ll want to print it at 13×19 inches on standard photo paper.
6.) If you opted into having your story published on our social media sites, we will post to the website in due time, and you can request to have us send you the link to the story when it is actually published if you would like.
