Title: Does anyone have the correct Family Fun email?
Post by: Schriscoe on May 26, 2013, 06:10 AM
I have a craft that I would like to submit to Family Fun, I tried emailing it to Deborah Way but it bounced back.

Does anyone have their submissions email?

Thanks
Sharon

I'd look at the masthead for an editor in the department to which you're submitting.
Then I'd send it to  firstname.lastname@disney.com

Thanks Jean. I just tried that one and it bounced back. Then I tried just her first initial and it bounced. Maybe she is no longer with them. Although what I found online, she is the senior editor for that dept.

I have these from 2009: mgied.familyfun@disney.com (my great idea) and queries.FamilyFun@disney.com. Might they work?

Wait! I used this in August 2012 and it worked: queries.familyfun@meredith.com

Good luck!

Here are some updated guidelines, too, which mention the Meredith part of the address: http://www.getpublishedparentingmags.com/2012/09/familyfun-submission-guidelines.html

Yes, it should be. I received a reject on my submission but it was an almost. But the email was right.
