Frequently Asked Questions
Are all submissions published?
Stroke Connection has a limited number of pages and is only quarterly, therefore it is impossible for us to publish all submissions.
How do I know if my submission is selected?
You will be notified; however, the Stroke Connection editorial team meets once every three months to select content for upcoming issues, therefore it could be quite some time before you hear from us. Please be patient, and we’ll let you know as soon as we’ve made a decision.
Does Stroke Connection pay for stories?
Our goal is to keep Stroke Connection free to individual subscribers and to reach as many stroke families as we can; therefore, to keep our costs down, we do not offer payment for stories.
Can I submit my story to other publications?
Absolutely. In the event your submission is selected for publication, you will be asked to sign a form that gives us permission to reprint the story in future ASA/AHA publications or on our Web site, but you retain the right to publish your story elsewhere so long as it is not an exact replication of the Stroke Connection version.
Do you have writer’s guidelines?
Yes, writer’s guidelines are available in PDF format for download.
