General Guidelines:

  • We prefer submissions that have not been published elsewhere, with the exception of personal blogs.
  • If you are submitting a piece that has been published anywhere else, mention it in your e-mail.
  • If the piece is published here first, then any publications of the same work in the succeeding 6-month span should mention that it has been previously featured on Esthesia.
  • Due to time constraints, we are unable to follow-up with feedback after not accepting a piece.
  • Upon acceptance, we may get back to you with a few pointers to further edit the piece.
  • Allow us a period of two weeks to provide you with a response. If you do not receive one (only after the specified time period), hit us up with a follow-up email!
