Read the Following to See if WHW Is the Right Fit for Your Article:
We focus on articles that empower, educate, and help fiction writers improve their skills. Posts should target an aspect of writing, publishing, marketing, or promotion and offer fresh insight to our readers. That said, we favor articles on writing craft, especially topics writers wrestle with but are not often discussed.
To find out if we’ve already covered your idea, you can do a search or browse previous blog posts by category. These functions can be found at the top or in the right-hand sidebar of any blog page.
We’re looking for posts by writers and industry professional who wish to share their knowledge and experience. Rights remain with the guest poster as we don’t pay for material. We will also entertain reprints if the material is exceptional.
The average post at Writers Helping Writers is 800-1000 words long.
Because our blog is used by many teachers with students in the classroom, our posts need to maintain a PG rating. Please keep this in mind when it comes to language and overall topics.
Due to the large number of writing blogs out there and the advice that’s generously being shared, we want to make sure we aren’t recycling the same old tips. The content we post needs to be fresh, providing ideas and information that is in some way new or profound.
Your post should be practical and accessible to all levels of writers. Be sure to add some tips for how writers can apply the new knowledge you’re sharing. Up to two related external links can be included within the body of the post.
Submitted posts should be edited and typo-free. If your content requires major editing, we will pass, so take your time and only send your best work.
Guest posters are expected to share the post online once it publishes and respond to comments at the blog as they come in. This is something our readers have come to expect, and it’s a great way for authors to connect with potential new readers.
Keep in mind that a post’s main function is not to promote; instead, it’s an opportunity for the poster to demonstrate knowledge and to help writers overcome common struggles. If you have a book, product, or service to introduce to our readers, you’ll have a chance to do so in your bio.
Publicists, please do not send us unsolicited books or email “form” letters inviting us to review books or host authors. Take the time to understand who we are and what our blog focuses on.
If you’re still interested in posting with us, we’d love to hear from you. To help us stay organized, please send your request VIA THIS FORM and Mindy, our Resident Blog Wizard, will be in touch.
