Hi there fellow writer! We are always looking for great, original articles, and you are always looking for more visibility, more followers and to build your résumé (at least, we assume you are!)

If you’re a brand rep, you’re in the wrong place. Guest posts can’t promote a brand, so if you’re looking to promote a product, head over to our sponsored content page to learn more about what we can do for you.

Here’s what the author box, at the bottom of each article, looks like:

Guest Blogging – get to know our style:

  • Have a look around our website to check out the length, topics and style of our articles. In a nutshell, we’re a cross between a blog and a magazine. In other words: lots of personality and a personal story or two is okay. We do not want dry, purely factual or essay-style articles. We like our articles to have some juice! 
  • The article must also teach our readers something, and have a perspective, with a strong point-of-view. We want you to connect with our readers in a personal way. Try opening with a personal story. Fill it with personality. This is a perfect example of the style we want for all articles. So is this and this (here are more by the same great author) and this and this author is good too… so is this one and this one. Check out this infographic for more ideas.
  • When you submit an article to us, your goal needs to be to make it be better than anything ever published on that topic. Ever. Anywhere on the web. And that takes time.
  • Your article should be well-researched and you should have edited it many times to remove superfluous copy. Say as much as you can in as few words as you can. Edit, edit edit. Each sentence counts. Make them short, easy to understand, and impactful. Let Hemingway and Grammarly help. Compose the article in this.

Remember:

  • We don’t want articles that are dry. We are looking for a lot of personality. Reading it should be FUN!
  • Remove unnecessary sentences — try to say as much as you can in as few words as you can, in general.
  • Don’t send us something boring. For us to publish it, your article really needs to be a knockout article that could go viral… not something that’s easy to find elsewhere.

Conditions:

  • Your article has to be unique and original — it can NOT have been published anywhere else online. You will be signing over the copyright to Urbanette, and we’ll make sure nobody else re-publishes it.
  • You are not permitted to get any remuneration (trips, product, discounts, payment, etc.) in exchange for any article submitted to Urbanette, nor are you permitted to use Urbanette as a reference to get anything free or discounted.
  • We reserve the right to edit the article and to remove any links you added. (Posts that promote or link to your brand need to be sponsored. Please contact us for more details on that.)
  • You must spend just as much time to promote your articles as you do writing them. Or even more, if you can. So, if you took eight hours to write the article, you need to spend at least eight hours on outreach. Minimum.

Not sure what to write about? Find ideas that will go viral. Interesting stuff that people will want to share. Again, look at this infographic. Then email us with your article topic suggestions, along with a paragraph containing a detailed description of each article idea.

Will it be in print? If your article is really juicy, it just may end up in one of our fabulous and chic print issues.

Questions? Read this page twice, then email: writers @ urbanette .com (remove the spaces!)

Want to write for us long-term? If you’d rather have an ongoing volunteer position, or want to do more than just write articles, check out our fun Volunteership Positions.

Wondering why we don’t pay? That’s because we’re 100% volunteer, and give 100% of profit to help disenfranchised women become entrepreneurs.
