Thank you for your interest in writing for The Freelance Dance! Below you’ll find the process for submitting your pitch idea, and once approved your final guest post. The guest post should be original and should contain unique ideas on the topic that have not been published on other platforms or websites. Mom News Daily has a readership of 100k monthly and we are looking for writers to write articles on Freelance Mom. Every month, we produce hundreds of engaging stories for parents and kids in India, US, UK, Australia, Canada. We are looking for writers who are comfortable writing reviews of different products that might appeal to our readers, all of which covers Freelance Mom.
Nor do we cover policy issues affecting only scientists, such as funding policies or the appointment of institute heads. We want stories that move science on, not incremental advances. By submitting to FreelancingGig.com you acknowledge that you accept any form of editing that might occur on behalf of the FreelancingGig editorial team. Ink relevant posts from your site, reputable news sites, and blogs, and previous posts by The Freelance Dance.
Send in focused pitches relating to one or two story ideas, rather than pitching many less well-informed ideas at once. Make sure it is a good story and explain why it is a good story – remember, your story is competing for coverage against tens or hundreds of others each week. Ask yourself why our readers would care about what you’re going to tell them. We do not cover developments of interest only to specialists, such as new animal models of a disease or the opening of new science research centres.
On the other hand, features are mostly written by freelancers. This document is intended to outline what the editors are looking for, how to go about pitching and writing stories and what our conditions are. Most of it should be obvious to experienced journalists, but these guidelines should help ensure that pitches or articles provided by you, a freelancer, meet our editorial standards. At Mom News Daily, we’re always looking for great writers to join our team.
This type of work is not for someone who just wants to bang out quick blog posts and not get involved with the team. Creating one blog post requires a lot of collaboration — that’s what it takes to create high-quality articles. We understand that a content agency cannot operate without its writers and that writers are at the core of our service offering. We know that writers are not machines, designed to churn out as many blog posts as possible. Once you’ve selected a job, it’s time to start your research. Our writers have a hard-earned reputation for creating captivating content that’s “all killer, no filler” and we’ll be expecting the same from you.
This may include sending a newsletter, posting on your social media channels, making an announcement, or linking to it from your own website. Failure to comply with these requirements may result in your article being removed from the website. The opportunity to write for us Freelance Mom is a great way to expand your reach as a writer and gain exposure for your brand. We have a special readership of mothers, which gives us an invaluable target demographic. Contributing an article to Freelance Mom content is an effective way to increase your traffic and rankings on the search engines.
This covers “the form of words used”, which means you can’t sell the same article to other publications. You can, however, still write a different article on the same subject for them. If you’re curious about how to draft one, check out my post all about bios. Make sure you send me the HTML version of your biography.
Everyone in the team starts out as a writer and only goes on to become a strategist once they’ve mastered the writing side of our work. Don’t submit to simply promote a product or business. Interact with our readers and use first-person accounts. We reserve the right to modify this Agreement or its terms at any time at our discretion. When we do, we will revise the updated date at the bottom of this page. An updated version of this Agreement will be effective immediately upon the posting of the revised Agreement unless otherwise specified.
New Scientist is not intended as required reading for professional scientists, as a public service or as an educational tool. Our features are informative, thought-provoking and scrupulously researched, but must also stand alone as entertaining pieces of journalism. That means there’s little point in pitching stories from major journals such as Nature and Science, or from press sites such as Newswise or EurekAlert! We will have seen them already, and generally ask staffers to write them. Only pitch from these sources if you have an exclusive angle on the research, its context or implications that others will not. New Scientist has a team of around 40 editorial staff.
