Guest Post Guidelines

Mal | | Wednesday, March 11th, 2009

If you have thoughts that you feel would be fitting for a guest post on turning*, please contact me and we’ll open up a dialogue about topic and timing. I’ve got a list of potential prompts or topics, if you are having trouble coming up with ideas. Just let me know!

Inviting others to write about their experiences and post them here on turning* helps me to achieve some of my personal goals:

  • To learn more about other people’s creative processes and the emotional connections they have to their art.
  • To share the spotlight with others, and highlight well-written blogs by like-minded people.
  • To encourage community-building and sharing.
  • To promote discussion and give voice to viewpoints that may be different from (yet related to) my own.

In crafting your guest post, here are a few guidelines that I’ll ask you to consider:

  • Please focus your post on some aspect of creativity that has personal meaning for you. This is not a place to post your tutorials, your etsy shop updates, or your funny cat pictures.
  • Please consider including at least one image that enhances your post. Images must either be owned by you or released under a Creative Commons license.
  • Please provide a 2- to 3-sentence byline introducing yourself to my readers and linking to your own blog, if you have one. It is not necessary for you to have your own blog, however. I’m happy to direct readers to your flickr photostream, etsy shop, favorite craftster tutorial, or nothing at all.
  • Once the article is posted, I encourage you to link to it on your own blog, via twitter, and elsewhere. You should be proud of what you’ve written! I wouldn’t have agreed to publish it if I didn’t think it made a good contribution to the discussion of creativity and meaning.
  • Please consider checking back on the post and participating in any discussion that may arise in the comments.

In addition, please read the following disclaimers:

  • Submission of a guest post implies release of rights for me to publish your words on my blog. Due credit will be given to each author and no attempt will be made to claim credit for another’s work.
  • I reserve the right to not post any essay that is submitted, and may or may not inform you of the reasons behind those decisions. I will, however, inform you of my decision regarding your post, and inform you of publication date.
  • In order to ensure that the quality and content of turning* remains consistent, I will probably edit your post before publication. If the changes I wish to make are anything more serious than punctuation and spelling, I will send you a final draft for your approval before posting.
  • Guest posting is an opportunity to promote your own blog, but please do not use your guest post as an opportunity to promote products.

Thank you again for your interest and for your contribution to the conversation! I look forward to hearing from you.
