What we’re looking for:
In this time of pain and rage, we redouble our commitment to welcoming and featuring the voices of previously unheard and also established writers who write to make us see, to clarify injustice, and to move us to action. As such, our Solstice staff has decided to pivot from our former Features/Blog theme of COVID-19 to make room for an uncomfortable conversation. Let us speak out against systemic racism and violence and defend the sacredness of every human life.
Please submit to our new Features/Blog with the theme of Anti-Oppression.
Guest blog submissions are ideally between 500 to up to 1,000 words. Shorter is always better for reading on the web, although longer pieces can be made more web-friendly by keeping the following tips in mind:
- Use language that is short and concise.
- Keep paragraphs to a maximum of four to five sentences.
- Break up major points with headlines.
We request that blog submissions be accompanied by a brief bio, an author headshot if you want one included, and any images you would like to include in your blog. Images should belong to you, however if you send an image from another website or from a Google images search, please include a link back to the page from which the image appeared so we can give credit. We prefer Jpeg images that are no larger than 2MB.
