PowerToFly Guest Post Guidelines

Submission Process & Expectations

*We are not currently accepting submissions. Please hold all submissions and inquiries until June 2021. All posts submitted before then will be declined.*

Thanks for your interest in writing a guest post for PowerToFly! Below you'll find an overview of the submission process and our expectations for guest posts.

Process:

  1. Send an email to hi@powertofly.com with a 1-2 sentence description of your background & expertise (please link to previous work as well). If you have topic ideas in mind, please send them as well.
  2. We will reply to you ASAP. *We are currently experiencing a very high volume of requests, so if you do not hear back from us within a week please assume that we do not have the bandwidth to consider your request.* If we are interested in moving forward, we may propose keywords for you that align with your expertise and the interests of our audience.
  3. Confirm which piece you will be writing, and send a draft of the piece within 2 weeks. *Please do not write or send a draft unless we have replied to your email from Step 1 above and confirmed a topic.*
  4. We will provide one round of edits, if necessary.*
  5. Your post goes live on our blog!

*Note: We cannot guarantee that submitted pieces will be published on our site. If your first draft doesn't quite meet our standards for publication, we'll send you one round of edits. Once they're successfully implemented, we'll publish the piece! If we think it would take more than one round of edits to get your piece ready for publication, we'll let you know at that time that your submission hasn't been accepted.

What To Include with Your Submission:

  1. A Google doc with a draft of your piece
  2. A headline that incorporates the selected keyword
    • A sub-headline if desired
  3. A 2-3 sentence bio and a headshot. (We will use this info to create a guest author profile for you. You can include a link to your website and/or social media accounts in the bio if you wish.)

Expectations:

Original Work: All submissions must be original and exclusive to PowerToFly.

Keywords: You should incorporate your assigned keyword in the title of the piece and at least once in the first few paragraphs. Make sure it sounds organic and relevant when used.

Length: Use your discretion when it comes to the length of the article - say what needs to be said as concisely as possible. That said, ~1000 words tends to be a good target.

Spelling & Grammar: Please proofread your submission. It should be free of spelling and grammatical errors. To help keep our editor sane, only use one space after periods and embrace the Oxford comma!

Style & Tone: We strive for a casual, informative (and occasionally irreverent) tone in our pieces - we encourage you to bring your personal experience and voice to the piece. Keep it snappy, engaging, and smart. The best way to get a sense for this tone is to read some pieces on our blog:

- https://blog.powertofly.com/salary-negotiation-women-2620839387.html

- https://blog.powertofly.com/what-are-your-salary-expectations-best-answers-2621996641.html

- https://blog.powertofly.com/gender-neutral-language-in-the-workplace-2619166036.html

- https://blog.powertofly.com/diversity-in-workplace-benefits-2616313615.html

Images: If there are images you'd like included, make sure you include a link to a Google Drive folder with high-quality downloadable versions. If people are in the images, we strive to feature our target audience - women and non-binary folks of all racial and ethnic backgrounds, ages, shapes, and sizes... And of course, make sure you have permission to use the image or otherwise site the source.

Links & Citations: If you are linking back to your own site, it should be a defensible link that is clearly relevant to the piece itself. Otherwise, make sure all sources are cited as necessary with links (bonus points if you link to a PowerToFly article!).
