I am thrilled to have such an avid gardener join us! Welcome to Weeds & Wildflowers, Crystalclearcandace ♥ You are now one of our contributors.

Good first step — crediting your photos! All submissions must have an image, whether yours or one from Unsplash or another free photography site. All must be credited. If you are using a photo of someone you know, say, your sister’s, you must credit her and add “used with permission” or something like that.

Here are the instructions for submitting:

Write your piece — be sure to give credit for any images, including your own.

  1. Once your piece is ready, click on the 3 dots in the upper right-hand corner of the page that are to the left of the little notifications bell
  2. Click on the top choice “Add to publication”
  3. Under the publications list, choose Weeds & Wildflowers (which is probably the only one you have if you don’t write for any others)
  4. At the bottom of the window, click “Select and continue”
  5. Now you will have a green button at the top of the page with your piece that says “Submit” — click that
  6. A new window opens and it should say “Submitting to Weeds & Wildflowers”. Beneath that is a place to select up to 5 tags. Choose your tags.
  7. Once your tags are chosen, click the green “Submit to publication” button

You will get a notification when your piece is published. I typically publish 4–6 pieces a day but with this pandemic and so many people at home, I’ve been getting many more submissions and had to start published 8–12 times a day! I give preference to first submissions, though.

Let me know if you have any questions or problems. You can always email me: dennettrm@gmail.com

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
