Submission guidelines

We love hearing from and publishing our readers. To make sure your piece is press ready, please make sure it fits the following guidelines.
 
  • Written work should range between 500-1500 words. Any shorter often doesn't fully cover a topic, and any longer can lose people with short attention spans
  • Content must be written by you and include reference to any sources used for information. We value integrity!
  • Please proofread and spell check all content. For best results, share with a friend before sending it in.
  • Please keep all submissions positive, encouraging, and conversational in tone, rather than negative or lecturing
  • At the end of your submission, please include your Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram account handles, labeled clearly. We want to give you credit for your work, and your friends will want to read it, too!
  • Share the love. When we publish your piece, please share the link to the article with your social media connections.
