Guest Post Request

Want Your Articles Featured? Fill in the Quick Form Below and We’ll Get Back to You!

At Your First 10,000 Readers, we love sharing stories from other authors about successes, failures (and how you dealt with them), and lessons learned from the trenches of building a successful author career.

If you’d like to publish an article on our site, please fill in the form below and read the Terms and Conditions. If your article pitch is accepted and you publish with us, we’ll feature your work with our audience of 70,000 professional authors via email and social media and – of course – provide you with links to your website or other online assets (so you get tons of juicy traffic 24/7).

Important: Our number-one focus is on quality and providing our readers with a place they can come to learn and grow, so please bear the following in mind before you submit:

  • Articles should be a minimum of 1,500 words, and there is no upper limit
  • Articles should cover at least ONE of the topics listed in the Request Form (below)
  • Articles should aim to cover YOUR experiences and results, preferably backed up with some data and / or numbers (rather than using someone else’s experiences)
  • Articles can be a “how to” focus, or a more general look at strategy, principles, or “lessons learned”, but you will be far more likely to be accepted if you include your personal stories as part of the post
  • A good structure for the submission is to let us know (a) what your issue was, (b) what you did to overcome it / them, and (c) your results (the more specific the better)
  • Articles should be original, written by you, and not available anywhere else on the internet prior to publication with us (eg – you should write us something new)

Assuming you’re happy with the above, here’s how the process works:

  • Step One: Fill in the Guest Post Request Form below and include a short synopsis of what your article will cover
  • Step Two: Your request will be reviewed and we’ll get back to you with a “yes”, “no” or we’ll ask for some changes before deciding.
  • Step Three: Once your article pitch has been approved, we’ll agree a submission deadline and publication date.
  • Step Four: You’ll submit the finished article by the agreed deadline above and provide your links, images, and other assets you’d like included
  • Step Five: We’ll review your finished article and either approve it, or request changes (if needed). If we need to review the publication date at this stage, we will agree this with you.
  • Step Six:¬†Once we’ve approved your finished draft and any agreed changes are made, we’ll publish the article on our site and promote it to our audience – and send lots of authors your way.

Sound good? If so, please fill in the Guest Post Request Form below, and we’ll be back in touch soon.

Terms and Conditions:
  1. We do not guarantee that all submissions will be accepted
  2. If your accepted article final draft is not submitted before the agreed deadline, we do not guarantee that we will be able to publish it
  3. If your finished draft is not approved and you are unable to make requested changes (if required), we do not guarantee that we will be able to publish your article
  4. You agree that any finished article you submit for publication is your own unique work, and is not available anywhere else on the internet prior to publication with us
  5. You agree that any finished article you submit for publication does not contain any copyright protected assets belonging to another person (eg – images and text should be your own or licensed appropriately, in the case of stock images)
  6. We have final say over the appearance, layout, and formatting of your article and we will display your article in line with our branding guidelines and the look and feel of our site (eg – we’ll make it look the way it needs to look, so don’t worry about making it super pretty when you submit).
  7. You retain copyright ownership of your work
  8. You agree to allow us to use excerpts, quotations, quotes, and any other samples of your finished article for promotional purposes (eg – we can send out snippets as part of our promotion for you).
  9. When you submit your email address to us in the form above, we agree to keep your personal contact data confidential
  10. When you submit your email address to us in the form above, you agree that we may from time to time send you promotional material related to author marketing, writing, or related topics and that you will be able to unsubscribe at any time (eg – no spam)
