Use the following guiding questions to form your article:

Is my story relevant, helpful, uplifting, and inspiring to military teens?​

Does my article offer a fresh perspective, personal story, or unique advice?

Is my article engaging, well written, and an appropriate length?

Is my article free of grammatical errors, spelling errors, and redundancies?


  • Please stick to our "military brat" theme and only share pieces that are relevant to our audience of military teens.

  • As the writer of your piece, you retain all rights and ownership of anything you submit. We will not attempt to claim your work as our own. However, after your piece is published on Bloom, we ask that you do not release your work elsewhere for 90 days (seek exceptions by communicating with our editors).

  • Please only use free or creative commons images on you work. If your images need to be paid for, we will remove them.

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

  • To gain more exposure for your article 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.

  • Please note that submission of an article does not mean it will be published.

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

  • In order to ensure professionalism and clarity for readers, our editors will revise articles for grammatical, spelling and wording errors. By submitting, you grant us permission to make changes to your article.
