So, you've been inspired by the many ways you can tell your story with the OLC. You've developed your story ideas into a submission. You've edited your submission to enhance the story you're telling. And now, you're feeling ready to submit your content to the OLC.

It's really important to figure out if you have a indirect or direct submission.

If you have an indirect submission, it needs to be first approved by your supervisor from the course, program, or intiative that you are participating in. Then, upon approval, it is forwarded to the OLC for publication.

A direct submission can be sent straight to the OLC editorial team to be reviewed and published to the site.

Whether you have an indirect or direct submission, review the provided submission guidelines to make sure you are creating a complete submission. Since we have a wide range of content types you can choose from, each one is submitted using different steps and guidelines.
