What We Give:
Writing for reshapeyourplate.com gives you the opportunity to promote your expertise and insights to our passionate, local readers. Writers will be featured in our monthly and seasonal newsletters. To increase your reader-base, make sure you share and tweet your articles when we post them. Contributors will also be offered the opportunity to place a banner in our newsletter or website promoting an event or a product of their own. Posts will be promoted on Facebook and the writer will be tagged along with each post. All writers will receive full credit at the top of their article which links to a dedicated bio page with an image, bio, and link to the writer’s website(s) as well as Facebook and Twitter pages.
What We Get:
Writers are encouraged to promote their articles through their email, websites, newsletters and social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter. We publish original content. We ask for submission that have not been published previously. We accept articles of all lengths but prefer articles in the range of 250 – 800 words. We ask that regular contributors commit to submitting 1-2 posts per month.
Please submit your article as a Microsoft Word Document, with as little formatting (no italics, no centre alignment, etc.) as possible. Include a working title along with your submission. We occasionally revise titles to get the most hits and reads possible. Use clear, concise language in your title and throughout your article. Articles that include numbered lists in the title and body of the text are often popular (e.g. 10 recipes to use up that garden zucchini, 5 tips to get you started on a daily meditation practice). Our editorial staff reserves the right to edit your text for grammar, punctuation and format (e.g. bulleted lists). If you are linking within your article, please include links to other articles and resources on our site before linking to an outside source. We do not publish external links that are promotional in nature within the article content.
Ready to Submit?
Visit our Contact page and select Contributor from the menu. Once you have selected this option you will be prompted with a file upload options. If it is your first time submitting to us, please use the file upload to include a short bio (max 50-60 words), hometown and a link to your website, Facebook and Twitter accounts, and You Tube if you have it. By sharing our knowledge, we look forward to building a community full of goodness and grace together.
