Thank you for your interest in being a content contributor for elletwo! Please read this entire page before sending us your submission - it includes guidelines and tips to help you! 😊 These are our updated guidelines as of March 20, 2023.

To be very transparent about our process - submitting a draft, writing sample, or pitch does not guarantee publication. We recognize the time and energy that goes into writing your post, and so we offer three options for submissions:

Option 1: Share a previous writing sample (min. 400 words) for review, and if accepted, you will move forward with drafting a new post to be published on the elletwo blog.

Option 2: Submit a pitch in a document that includes the below information. If accepted, you will move forward with drafting a new post to be published on the elletwo blog. 

  • Potential title for your post

  • Content type from the below list

  • Explain why you’re the right person to write about this topic 

  • Link to your Linkedin profile, website, etc.

  • Link to a writing sample or include it in the body of the document (min. 300 words)
     

Option 3: Submit a draft for review and if accepted, we will copyedit and proofread it before publishing it on the elletwo blog. 
 

All approved drafts will be copy edited before publishing. Submissions may be edited for clarity and length, but you as the author will have approval rights on any major changes made.
