Want to Write a Guest Post for the Renegade Writer Blog?
Great! We get close to 12,000 unique visitors per month, so a guest post here can help you garner attention for your writing, ideas, and information products. Also, as a bonus, I pay $50 per post (via PayPal — preferred — or check)! First, though, a few things to keep in mind:
I do not accept pitches for guest posts. If you’re interested in writing for The Renegade Writer, please send me the entire post and I’ll let you know if I can run it — in which case I’ll send you $50 via PayPal.
If your post is accepted, please be prepared to publicize your post on social media and to respond to reader comments. This is very important!
The Renegade Writer readers are serious about writing, and they’re interested in writing for magazines, online markets, and copywriting clients. Guest posts must be specifically geared for beginning to intermediate writers who are serious about their work. Topics that work for us include the business of writing, marketing your writing, productivity, motivation, query writing, how to diversify your income, deciphering contracts, and the care and feeding of clients. While we’re open to posts on the craft of writing — such as how to write awesome ledes and kickers — we don’t run many of these.
Unlike many other blogs, I prefer meaty posts, even if they need to go beyond typical blog length of 300 or so words. You’ll see that many of the posts on this blog go to 800 words and above. I see The Renegade Writer more as a magazine for serious writers who want information that they can put to use right now — they’re not looking for quick-hit, feel-good platitudes.
I’d like to be the only person who runs a guest post. I understand that you may be simultaneously submitting your post to multiple blogs, but if it’s accepted somewhere else please let me know so I can pull the guest post from consideration.
Guess what? I can tell when you’re slapping together some vaguely writing-related post in hopes of selling your product to aspiring writers, and that you’re sending it to every writing blog on the net. So that post on “10 Greatest Female Writers of All Time” from finestuniversitydegrees.net? Don’t bother. Please get to know our audience and their needs before pitching. Just because it has the word “writing” in the title doesn’t mean it’s right for us.
If you want to write a guest post to help create a buzz for your writing-related product or service, I don’t pay for those…the byline at the top, bio with links at the bottom, and 12,000 monthly visitors will be your payment!
If you have a product, blog, or service that’s valuable to writers, I’m happy to include a bio box with a link to your site at the bottom of the post.
Still interested after all that? Please send your idea to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to hearing from you. And thanks!
