Content

Your post must be on one of the following topics:

Writing

Information that inspires, encourages, or educates would-be authors

Your post cannot be an advertisement for your product or the equivalent of a sponsored post. (However, you can link to your book or blog.)

You may provide up to three byline links: one for your blog or Web site, one for your bio or About page, and one for your Twitter username (optional).

Editing

Our team will likely copy/edit your post for grammar, punctuation, spelling, etc. If we make substantive changes (unlikely), we will email the post back to you for your approval before posting.

I may provide a short introduction or conclusion to your post to provide context or the rationale as to why I think the post is important. I will make sure that my comments are set off from yours stylistically, so that my readers are clear that these are mine and not yours.

Disclaimer

I understand the work that it takes to write a blog post. However, the fact that you have written a post and submitted it to me does not obligate me to publish it. The only guest posts I will publish are those that in my sole judgment add value to my readers.

Furthermore, if I do not approve your unsolicited guest post, I will not explain why I did not approve it or provide any detail. Please accept my gratitude in advance for your submission, and know that your work is valued and appreciated.

Submissions

If your post meets the above guidelines:

Please email it for consideration. You will receive a response within 30 days.

Please include a one to two-sentence byline that includes what you do, along with your blog address and your Twitter and/or Facebook address.

Please confirm that you are willing to engage with my readers in the comments about your post. This is hugely important. Our readers expect sincere engagement from the authors.

Please include the post in the body of the e-mail. DO NOT include it as an attachment. Also, please do not include HTML coding.

Please note: I reserve the right to delete comments that are offensive or off-topic.
