Quick Steps to Resubmitting an Article

The right way to handle a rejected article.

Before publication, we put all articles through the review process of two different human editors. When an article doesn’t pass review, an email is sent notifying you that your article has been placed in Problem Status.

When that happens, the most important thing you can do is not panic. It’s not the end of the world, and most of the time any issues can be fixed in a matter of minutes.

Nonetheless, there’s a right way and a wrong way to handle rejected articles. This video will walk you through the steps you should use if it happens to you.

The story is designed to get us thinking about what we’d ask for if we were granted just three wishes. It can also help us reflect on our own article writing hopes, dreams and wishes.

From My Desk To Yours – 21st Edition

By: Penny, EzineArticles Managing Editor

The article writing and marketing industry is a global community made up of people from hundreds of different countries with almost as many different languages.

In fact, EzineArticles Expert Authors come from a total of 230 different countries, territories or islands.

In a perfect world, we would have a section of the site devoted to each different language spoken by our authors. However, supporting each language would mean we’d need a full complement of editorial staffers who speak each individual language in order to provide our current high level of member service. As a result of this logistical challenge, we are currently only accepting articles written in English.

That means you have to know and understand our Editorial Guidelines, speak the English language and then be able to write high-quality articles.

Writing Articles With English as Your Second Language (Or Third or Fourth)

Implementing a successful article writing and marketing plan can be difficult in itself, but it’s even tougher if English isn’t your primary language. To remedy that, I’ve gathered some “Do’s” and “Don’ts” for non-native English speakers to follow as you implement your article marketing campaign.
