  • As the creator of your piece, you retain all rights and ownership of anything you submit. We will not attempt to claim your work as our own or to financially profit off of your work. Our sole profit is the joy of sharing your creations.

  • Only submit work you have created entirely on your own. While it's entirely fine to have inspiration, plagiarism is not okay, and we will not publish your work if it is plagiarized.

  • To gain more exposure for your creation and for Bloom as a whole, we will share featured creations on our social media accounts. By submitting a project, you grant us permission to share your work on our Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, and YouTube accounts.

  • We will not publish any creations that contain content that is derogatory, obscene, profane, pornographic, or inappropriate in any other way.

Bloom takes pride in being a safe platform for military kids to share their stories and be empowered. All of the opinions/beliefs expressed in articles belong solely to the author and are not a reflection of the views of the founders and editors of Bloom. Additionally, we understand the struggles and emotions of being a military child, but are not a mental health resource and are therefore unequipped to administer advice and assistance in that area. If you or a loved one are suffering from depression, abuse, or trauma, please visit our Resources page to find help.
