2020 Guest Post and Interview Guidelines

If you are interested in submitting a writing-related article, please contact us about the topic of the month.  The preferred word count is 400-800, with an absolute maximum of 1000. We also like to see photos that pertain to the topic. A writing prompt at the end is required. See other articles by our crew members for ideas.

For interviews (besides the answers to the questions), we’ll need a headshot, short bio with links, book blurb, and cover (if you have one) or blog and website information. We ask that you consider some type of giveaway for our 3 Questions Wednesday interview: a book, gift card, or other prize. If you’re giving a book, let us know if it’s Kindle, PDF, or print.

3 Questions Wednesday interview (choose three to answer)

  1. What do you love most about the writing process? The least?
  2. What was the best money you ever spent as a writer concerning craft? How about marketing?
  3. If you could give a novice writer one piece of advice, what would it be?
  4. Who is your favorite fictional hero or heroine? Villain?
  5. Describe your writing space.
  6. Give a shout out to a writer friend and your favorite book they’ve written.
