Hi there and first of all thanks so much for your interest in contributing a guest article to Divine Magazine
If you’re interested in submitting a guest post to us (and we love guest posts of all sorts!) here’s some info that may help you in your next steps. If you’ve submitted anything to us recently requesting a feature or promotion post, potential interview with an artist, or music post, please bear with us while we review it. We’ll respond as soon as we can.
We’re always interested in featuring professionally written guest posts, providing they fit in with the integrity and content of our site which is LGBTQ lifestyle, general entertainment, books, social issues, and music. We don’t publish posts related to religion, gambling, specific diet plans, IT programming and development or debt-related/finance. These are our ‘no go’ areas.
Please feel free to send along your guest post to [email protected], using the following guidelines to format your post –
- Remove all formatting from your article such as italics, bold and emoticons
- We’d prefer pictures are sent separately as .jpg or .png and are no bigger in size than width 700, rather than be embedded in the document.
- If they are sent separately, make sure to tell us in your Word document where you’d like them situated among the text.
- We prefer you to use Calibri as your base font
Once we have your post, we’ll vet it for content and links. Please ensure any pictures sent to us are owned and non-copyrighted. We need a minimum of two pictures with each post.
Should your post be published, we ask you not to contact us all the time asking when it will go up. As soon as the post is scheduled or live, we’ll let you know. Posts may only appear in a few weeks, or months’ time. We do NOT guarantee any specific posting date without prior discussion.
By sending your guest post to us, you are guaranteeing that it is unique content, not subject to copyright of any kind and that you give Divine Magazine the right to feature it.
Links included in your guest post for the basis of information purpose or highlighting the topic you are writing about, and which are not inducing anyone to buy or join anything, will be do-follow links.
