Submitting Your Story

We appreciate your interest in sharing your story with the Elephants and Tea AYA cancer community! Please submit your article or idea using the form below, and someone on our staff will review your article and get back to you. Because of the influx of interest from the community in sharing their story, it will take approximately two or more weeks for someone to get back to you. 

Please note — Most articles submitted will be shared only on our website, as we post three articles a week: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Articles are typically scheduled two months in advance.

Please also note — We have four quarterly print magazines that come out in March, June, September, and December. While we would love to include every submission in one of our magazines, we unfortunately are unable to do so. It is not meant to disrespect anyone’s story or experience, we simply have a limited amount of space in each magazine!

Submission Requirements

  • Please write a minimum of 500 words for website submissions
  • Please write approximately 1200 words for magazine submissions
  • Poems can be any word count for the website or magazine
  • If submitting for a specific magazine issue, please make note of that in your submission

Any questions please email Thank you!
