Work can be submitted for publication in Chelsea’s Beacon!
Prior to submitting work for publication, please complete the following:
1) Submit a signed and notarized authorization that gives consent to the Chelsea Foundation to publish the work. The form is titled "Permission and Release" and can be found at the bottom of the page to print out.
2) If the artist or writer is under 18 years of age, you must submit dual consents. Legally, we have to have the legal guardian's signature, but we prefer that the creator signs the consent form as well; both signatures need to be notarized. Since we are an organization for the benefit of children, we prefer that children are participants in the process. (Banks where the guardian has an account will usually notarize documents without a charge.)
3) Once completed, the consent form and work must be sent via the postal service (no e-mails allowed) to The Chelsea Foundation, Inc., P. O. Box 288, Powder Springs, Georgia, 30127.
Be sure to include an e-mail address so that when we receive your packet, we can acknowledge receipt in an e-mail to you. Note that these e-mails will come from firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is no payment for any work accepted and/or published. Accepted written work will be edited before being published. No work will be returned, so please keep your own copy. We try to notify the artists and/or authors when their work is going to be published, but sometimes, due to the volume of work received, this is not always possible. We suggest that everyone check the website monthly.
Do know that on occasion, we will hold contests. Sponsors who wish to encourage a child’s effort and focus occasionally donate prizes to the Chelsea Foundation for this purpose. All contests will be announced, have specific rules to follow and have deadlines for submission of entries. Prizes and rules for each contest will be posted.
Classes of students are welcome to create their own Castle Land story to be published, but such work requires a signed Consent and Assignment form, notarized, from the teacher, principal, and each legal guardian of the contributing students.
