Frequently Asked Questions
Are all submissions published?
Heart Insight has a limited number of pages and is produced 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 Heart Insight 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 Heart Insight pay for stories?
Our goal is to keep Heart Insight free to subscribers and to reach as many heart patients and their 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 Heart Insight version.
Do you have writer’s guidelines?
Yes, writer’s guidelines are available in PDF format for download.
E-mail us at: firstname.lastname@example.org ; or call 1-800-USA1 with your questions and we’ll be happy to get back to you.
