In this month's Educator News
, we'd like to answer some of the most frequently asked questions we get.Q: How do my students submit their essays?
A: All essays should be submitted through the This I Believe online form, which can be found at this page of our website: http://thisibelieve.org/submission/
. We are no longer accepting essay submissions by mail.Q: Can I submit my students' essays for them?
A: We ask that educators not submit essays on behalf of their students. As part of the essay submission process, we ask each author to agree to the Submission Agreement
. Only that individual (or that individual's parent or guardian, if under the age of 18), may agree to the terms of submitting an essay to our project. Q: Will my students' essays be posted on the This I Believe website?
A: Yes, all essays that fit within the This I Believe guidelines and are submitted through our online form will be posted to the This I Believe Essay Collection online. Essays are not automatically posted; they must first go through a review process, which can take up to eight weeks.
