WE ARE UNABLE TO ACCEPT CONTENT SUBMISSIONS AT THIS TIME
PLEASE CHECK BACK IN OCTOBER 2018
We cover a variety of topics including nutrition, healing, fitness, personal development, motivation, mindfulness, relationships, spirituality, and sustainable living. We recognize that wellness is a vast subject and are open to hearing about what contributes to your wellbeing.
Note: These guidelines are for written content submissions. For more information on video submissions please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Guidelines for Written Content Submission:
*** Be sure to read these Guidelines in full and submit accordingly, if you wish to be considered ***
Choose your own topic that you are passionate or knowledgeable about to share with the world and submit an article based on that.
Note: You must have an excellent grasp of the English language. We won’t publish articles written in poor English with multiple grammatical errors.
Content submitted must be unique.
We will not consider content which has been published or is planned to be published elsewhere. This includes books, magazines, and other online platforms.
We do not accept plagiarized content. All submitted content is screened for plagiarism.
If you want to share an idea that you have written about previously do not simply reword the content. You can make it original by writing from a different point of view, including your opinion, and adding more depth.
Here are some questions to focus your writing:
- What information or advice can you give that will make life better for our readers?
- Do you have a unique or creative solution to a problem?
- Can you elaborate on material covered in other articles already featured on Flowing Free?
- Can you put your own creative spin on a popular topic?
- Do you have something to share that will inspire our readers?
Tips on Writing
Create a relevant and engaging title for your piece to grab the readers attention.
Write an introductory paragraph to explain your piece and entice the reader to keep reading.
Break your content down into appropriate subheadings. You may use bullet points or numbers to list key ideas.
If it works with your writing style, make some text bold to have it stick out from the rest. This makes your writing easier to read and helps highlight key ideas. See this example.
Write for the readers. Find a balance between getting your ideas across in a clear and concise way while including enough detail so the readers understand what you are trying to say.
Minimum Word Count
We require a minimum of 1,000 words; if you can’t say that much about a topic, it may not be worth writing about. There is no maximum word count for content submissions. Most of our top ranking articles provide in-depth discussion at 2,000 – 5,000 words.
Link to Your Sources
If you mention a statistic, study, or health claim link to the original source. We prefer credible sources such as academic journals, scientific studies, and credible health and wellness professionals. See this example.
Note: If you add links to products or services in your article which are not related to your information sources we reserve the right to remove them.
Share Your Article
Once you have been accepted and published, to help us get your work out there, you agree to share the link on your social media channels or in your newsletter. Be sure to send us the link to where you have shared it.
Include a Brief Bio
Our readers want to know a bit about you, please include a brief (4-5 sentences max) 3rd person bio. Include your first and last name.
Since we don’t provide monetary compensation we provide one link to your own site or social media channel in your bio. We do not charge for publishing, but we expect high-quality, unique content in exchange for this link. And, as stated above, you must share the article on your social media channels.
Note: We are not interested in links to companies or products which are unrelated to health and wellness and do not align with our values.
