Tips for Getting Your Article Accepted
Ensure you read through all of their rules and stipulations BEFORE submitting an article. As an Editor myself, nothing makes me madder than receiving an article that does not meet the brief that I have diligently written out. Stick to the topics, word count and other specifications that have been asked for, and don’t forget to include a bio for yourself including a picture.
- Specified Word Count
- Stick to Topics Requested
- Ensure it hasn’t already been covered on the website you are writing for
- Stick to your strengths – write the topics you most enjoy!
- Spell and Grammar check your work
- Read the submission guide carefully!
Not an Article Writer? No Worries
Websites are not just looking for articles. Many are looking for other things such as:
- Short Stories
So choose your strength and then find the websites that will accept your material.
