If you've ever considered writing content for a magazine we offer a great opportunity to get your 'foot in the door' with an acceptive and encouraging community.
How does it work? Pitch your idea to our team with just a few simple paragraphs outlining who or what you'd like to do, by sending an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
The contributions we look for can be varied in design and nature - such as:
- Features about local designers and projects.
- Q&A's with fascinating members of our community.
- Craft labs aka investigative research into ways our designers can further grow their businesses.
- DIY's, recipes and tutorials to help our reader's to live creative lives.
- Plus so much more...
Once your pitch has been accepted be sure to follow the guidelines below...
Each piece must have:
- Column name - all contributors have column names eg. Anarashii Wisdom, Upcycle It, Creative Business, Craft Lab etc.
- Title - generally two words, no more than four.
- Writer/Interviewer - tell us who is responsible for the words.
- Photography/Images - tell us who is responsible for the images.
- For features about a designer: we need to know where to shop, Facebook page & email address.
- For features/articles written by you and not about a designer: we need to know your website and/or Facebook page.
Pieces submitted without this core information unfortunately can not be accepted.
We have a preferred layout of our DIY's and tutorials:
- Introduction - generally a paragraph long.
- Starts with a 'You will need' list of ingredients and/or project requirements. Each ingredient should have a capital letter for consistency across all contributors.
- Instructions - should be numbered 1, 2, 3 etc. To make it easy to follow the instructions.
- Conclusion - generally a paragraph long - but not necessary. Some projects may not require this step.
If you have any questions - please feel free to ask. If this is your first time contributing, please don't be scared - if you get it wrong, we won't bite. That's a promise!
