Thank you for your interest in sharing your words with The Gift of Writing Community! If your heart is stirred by any of the three topics covered on this site, and you feel you have something to add to the conversation, I would love to hear from you.
The three topics are as follows:
1. Expressive writing for personal growth
If you have a story to share about the healing act of writing in your own life I’d love to share it with our community. Has journaling or writing from a deep and broken place led you to a place of growth or wholeness? If so, I’d love to hear your story.
Here are some guidelines that will help you with your submission:
The piece should not be a commentary on writing as a form of therapy. It should be your own story about how writing has helped you work through a particular area in your life in which you were stuck. This could be anything from grief, depression, trauma to everyday anxiety or problems in a relationship.
The length of the piece should be anywhere from 800-1200 words.
The piece should be original. Please do not post it elsewhere.
Pay close attention to the title of your post and the opening paragraph. Do they hook the reader into the story?
Please avoid promotional links within the post.
Please copy and paste your piece directly into an email and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject headline GUEST POST PROPOSAL.
Send a 50-80 word bio along with a pic (of your lovely self) and a link to your website.
Do send images if they are very specific to the content in your post.
If your post is accepted here’s what to do:
When your post is accepted you will be given a publication date. Please be available on that day to answer comments directly on the site.
Please be prepared for small changes to your post. Edits will be minor unless I contact you. If any substantial content editing is necessary I will talk to you about those changes.
Don’t forget to share your post with your social media community.
Please note that defamatory or inappropriate comments are not accepted on this site. If any should appear, they will be deleted to protect the integrity of both the site and you the author.
