If you would like to share your expertise while helping writers at the same time, why don’t you consider writing for us? We’d love to publish your work and share your writing with our audience.
Sooo… Interested In Writing For Us?
That’s great! Please read the following carefully.
All submissions should be sent by e-mail. Please ensure that you follow the formatting guidelines below. Submissions that are not correctly formatted, include articles as attachments, or are otherwise inappropriate, may be politely turned away without review.
We accept article submissions in plain text pasted into the body of an email, sent to the address firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please don’t attach your article as a Word document, PDF file, or any other marked-up format. If you’re sending an HTML formatted file, note that the article will be read as plain text, and that formatting will not be preserved. If you’re not sure what any of that means, don’t worry about it! Just copy and paste the article into the email message, and we’ll let you know if we can’t find your article.
Please be sure prefix your subject line with “Article Submission” AND the title of the article in the subject line of the message. For example, if your article is called “The 3 top cheeses for authors,” your subject line should be:
- Article Submission: The 3 top cheeses for authors
In addition to a well-formatted subject line, your email should include the following:
- The article
- Your full name (or pseudonym)
- A 50-word bio (you may include one link to your own website)
Writerfield pays a flat rate of $20CAD via PayPal per accepted article upon publication.
Topics For Submission
Writerfield’s goal is to help writers with their writing. With that in mind, our range of topics is hard to define without being too limiting. We’ve published articles on craft, productivity, lifestyle, reading lists, and we care deeply about art, society, career development, and more.
Alterations will almost always be necessary, so don’t be surprised. Usually we will send you a copy of the edited manuscript. This is your chance to respond to the editing. Every effort will be made to consult with you throughout the editing process. Please note that we usually write the article headlines ourselves.
You own your article. All we purchase from you is the right to publish your article first, before anyone else. If you’ve sent your article to other publications as well, please let us know when you submit it. If anyone wants to reprint your article after seeing it in Writerfield, we will refer them directly to you.
Your submission must adhere to the following:
- Use Original Content. The submitted content must be original, you must have the right to use it, and all quotes and extracts must be attributed accurately.
- Not be purely self-promoting. You can include a link to your website or blog if it is relevant, but your submission content should not include promotional material or be an advertorial. This means no affiliate links either. Remember, this is about helping the writing community.
- Be free of errors. Please make sure your submission is free of typos and grammatical errors. Small errors will happen from time to time, but please don’t send something that you haven’t taken a few editing passes over yourself.
- Be between 500 and 2,000 words. Sorry, no novels!
- Permit edits. We reserve the right to edit the content to remove typos, grammatical errors, inaccuracies, and to improve the title. Images may also be added or removed from your submission to meet size and style requirements.
- Allow sharing. You must be okay with your article being shared on our blog, as well as on social media and potentially in digital and print projects.
- Not be used elsewhere. Please refrain from republishing the content on multiple sites.
- Understand publishing isn’t guaranteed. The submission of content does not guarantee the publishing of content. Writerfield reserves the right to deny or take down your content without notification.
- Submitting an idea doesn’t grant future ownership. This is troublesome, but we must be clear: we aren’t going to rip you off, but if you submit an article idea about an author’s favourite cheese and we are already working on a similar article, you understand that our article is a separate piece of content unrelated to your submission. You agree that no confidential relationship or obligation of secrecy is established between you and us with respect to your Content. You irrevocably agree not to assert any claim of idea appropriation, misappropriation, or any other similar claims of any kind with respect to your Content.
