The best way is to keep an eye on our various channels, as listed above in the ‘Where do the submissions get published?’ question.

Your personal information is safe with us. We do not sell, rent, or lease your personal information to any third party individual, government agency, or company at any time unless compelled to do so by law.

We will try our best – but if we need to cut it down a little bit or fix any spelling and grammar issues, we reserve the right to do so. 

We are happy to take submissions from anyone!

If you are under 18 years of age, you must have the permission of your classroom teacher, a parent or guardian to submit a “Dear World…” post. 

Submissions are published (and not limited to) social media, our website, partner websites, print publications, product packaging and more. If we use the words you submit on any products, you understand you cannot make any royalty claims for the use of these words. By entering your submission, you declare that the words are your own words and are not copied from another source.

We may publish your full name if you tell us you are a teacher, parent or member of the community. If you are a student, only your first name will be published. If you enter your country, state, city, school name or school class, we may publish that too.
