Write For US
We’re always looking for new authors. If you’ve got an idea that will challenge our readers and move our industry forward, we want to hear about it.
We’ll be honest, though: writing for Lifestyle heart takes work. We want your article to be at its best, and we’ll push you to get there. Once accepted, you’ll get extensive feedback from our team, and you’ll work closely with an editor on revisions.
What we’re looking for
You may submit a rough draft, a partial draft, or a short pitch (a paragraph or two summarizing your argument and why it matters to our readers) paired with an outline. The more complete your submission is the better feedback we can give you. Keep in mind that we only accept original content— we do not publish anything that’s been published elsewhere (including on your blog).
Please don’t send us press releases or sales pitches. They make us feel sad inside.
What we publish
We publish articles of anywhere between 700–2,500 words, depending on subject complexity. 1,500 words are about average. Articles often run with a custom illustration. Articles may be casual in tone and content— great for less-intensive tutorials and posts—or rigorously structured and edited. All should be well-considered explorations of current and cutting-edge topics in the world.
Topics You Can Write About.
How to submit (and what happens next)
Email us your submission. We prefer submissions as Google documents so that editors can easily provide feedback and guidance directly within your draft. You may also send us a plain text file, a Markdown file, or a link to an HTML document. (Please do not send ZIP files of assets unless requested by an editor.)
Use “GUEST POST SUBMISSION FOR LIFESTYLEHEART” in the Subject when you send us mail.
We do get a ton of guest post requests every single day. So, sometimes it becomes difficult to respond to everyone.
