Add to publication

You've written a story on Medium and now you'd like to publish it in a publication.

Before proceeding: you will need either to set up a new publication yourself, or else have another publication add you as a writer or editor.

All taken care of? Great, let's proceed...

For already published stories

Navigate to your story's published page, and scroll down to the bottom of the story. Click on the "..." icon in the lower right corner:

A drop-down menu will appear. Click on "Add to publication":

A list of all publications for which you are either an editor or a writer will appear. Click on the name of the publication to which you'd like to add your story:

If you are an editor of that publication, click on "Add story to publication." Your published story will be added immediately.

If you are a writer, click on "Submit story for review." Your story's status will change to "submitted".

Editors of that publication will receive a notification of the submission, and will be able to review and edit your piece. At any time, you as a writer can remove your story from a publication.

Note: Alternatively, from a story's published page, click on the "Edit" button and continue with the instructions below.

For unpublished drafts

Click on the "..." button next to "Publish" to access additional Draft Actions.

From the drop-down menu, click on "Add to publication":

Select the publication you'd like to add your story to:

Note: You will only be able to add your story to publications you own, or for which you are an editor or writer.

Click "Add story to publication":

You'll see a note at the top of your screen saying that your story or your draft was added to the publication. And the status of your story will be reflected at the top of the Editor:

Note: If you are not the publication owner or editor, your story status will read as "Submitted to" and the owner/editor of the publication will have a chance to review (and edit) your story before it is included in the publication.

Now just click through the "Publish" dialog, and you're all set!

Published Story URLs

The URL of your story will be modified to reflect the publication that it is now included in.

My story URL before being included in a publication was:

https://medium.com/@newwriter/this-is-my-story-148ecc9a7bca#.kw43tyyqm

And now is:

https://medium.com/a-new-publication/this-is-my-story-148ecc9a7bca#.nz7bdruha
