Writing and Submission Guidelines

When developing your piece, think about what inspires you most about food. If your subject incites passion in you, chances are it will do the same for readers, and that is our ultimate goal. Some other guidelines to remember:

  • The post should be between 300 and 600 words is great for articles, but feel free to write as extensively as you please.
  • For blog posts, there’s really no limit to your creativity, and thus no strict word count. However, consider breaking long stories into several posts to avoid sounding long-winded.
  • Please PROOFREAD.  Minor changes may be made to your piece for quality or clarity purposes. The integrity of your article will remain intact. Changing missed spelling errors or grammar issues is not meant to offend you, but improve the post.
  • Attach images you want to include with your post with the appropriate attribution and credits included. People like to SEE the places we’re talking about, so photos are highly encouraged.
  • When including quotes, studies, facts, or stats, please include a SOURCE so the reader knows that this is valid information.
  • Submit your post in word document format.

  • Share your blog post and website with others through social media, email and word-of-mouth
