We want to hear what you have to say. Below is a short informational post with the guidelines for submitting your guest post for a chance to be featured on our blog.
Writing for our readers
Our articles are geared towards event planners and promoters, looking for advice and tips for their upcoming events. We are a resource to small businesses, nonprofits, large corporations, educational programs, entrepreneurs, freelancers, artists, festivals, fairs and event promoters.
The goal is to answer all their questions and limit time wasted on researching.
To achieve this, we strive to provide articles that are instructional and informative, sometimes offering step-by-step instructions; this is what we look for in our guest posts.
Topics we cover:
- Event marketing
- Event planning tips, hacks and advice
- Lifestyle tips (business/office)
- Event technology
- Event trends and current industry news
- Nonprofit & fundraising tips

On our form we allow a minimum of 700 words, but would prefer more (between 900 - 1,200). However, if the content is good, we will accept this minimum word count. Your article can only be for our use and not published anywhere else.

4. Insightful, quality articles
We are looking for a format that is easy for readers to digest. That means no long paragraphs and drawn out sentences. Bullet points, action-steps, sub-headers for readers on the go or scanning the page.
