We do not offer guest post accounts, link backs, or dedicated bylines. Advertorials or PR disguised as an editorial are out of scope and are not considered for publication. Interviews cannot be submited by PR agencies. Please take some time to review this entire page as it clearly explains the guidelines, the submission process, and the type of content we accept. We do not pay for articles or accept payment for posting articles on our website. We abide by Google’s webmaster guidelines, so please do not ask us to accept payment for links in your article.
If you are an agency or company working to place guest posts for links, we don’t do any of this. Ditto if you want to publish your sponsored post with your links, or go back to an old post and stuff your link in. Our guest post guidelines outline what we are looking for so you can be sure your pitch hits the mark with our editing team. We are excited to hear your post ideas about the business and craft of freelance writing. Our authors range from experienced writers to first-timers. As our process includes editorial oversight, we can be a great place to publish your first piece.
We read each email and regularly answer inside one business day.

We would like to see an outline initially, rather than a complete article. We can often help authors to refine their outline to something we can accept, when had they sent the completed piece to us, we would have rejected it. You can read some detailed information about pitching, and why we ask for an outline in this article. Initially, you might think to start with a big and broad content idea, for example, “ How to start a startup with low capital”. But in most cases, content with simplicity and a narrow approach does the best. Because They provide to the point and valuable content that attracts more audiences.
If you can’t explain it in 2-4 sentences, it likely won’t work as a column. Thoughtfully discuss ethical and social issues in the creative industry. I will only upload images that I own the rights to.
Any story that has been published elsewhere, including your blog. Follow-ups to to articles we’ve published, unless they add significant new value. I will notify the Insteading editors if I’m affiliated with any of the sites linked to in the post. To be specific, it should be better writing than the stuff we’re normally producing for our readers, and your biases and any conflicts of interest need to be reasonably well disclosed. Please understand that we cannot respond to every pitch and will ultimately assign only the very best ideas. With a commitment to quality content for the design community.
For exceptionally high quality articles, our CEO, David Reid, will share them with his entire LinkedIn network, which consists of several thousand business owners and other connections. Prior to pitching an article idea, we encourage you to take a moment to learn about Writing Commons. Please check out whether we already have an article on your proposed topic. Submissions should be sent in .doc or .docx files.
