Thanks for submitting a blog for consideration to the site! Please read these guidelines before you submit.
Please note we can’t always respond to all emails, and we only have capacity to publish very few blogs from Queens currently.
Depending on your submission, you may want to check the site to make sure we haven’t already published something similar recently (especially if it’s an opinion piece on a current event.)
Articles, write-ups and stories must be 100% your own work. We respect the work of others and you should too.
You need to be the sole copyright holder of everything you submit, and by submitting you’re agreeing you own full copyright for any images you provide, or you took them yourself.
We’ll happily republish your piece that has appeared elsewhere, if we feel like it’ll resonate with Queens — as long as you are the sole copyright holder and you have permission to re-use your work (for example, you haven’t sold full rights to a news website that published you).
It’s also fine for you to submit a piece that appears on your own blog, website or you sent to your email list.
We’ll link back to your website and social links in the piece- however we don’t guarantee any blog will be shared directly to Constance Hall’s Facebook page or guarantee any amount of people will see your submission.
PR releases and other promotional content are welcome as long as they are of great benefit to Queens- but be aware we don’t prioritise these over Queentributions and rarely run them. Please write your release or review honestly, and don’t submit anything that clearly shows you don’t understand what Queens are all about. Don’t cc us in bulk PR emails.
We don’t currently run sponsored posts, so if you want to advertise traditionally on the site just get in touch the old fashioned way via our contact form for advertisers.
All content must be truthful and honest above all else. Queens of Constance is a positive and uplifting safe place to share your stories. However, if you haven’t been published before be aware that other pages may share your blog- and we can’t control comments sections on the internet.
By submitting your articles, write-ups and stories you’ve granted others the right to publish snippets of your work, as long as they leave your work in its original state. Other websites can generally quote or reference content published elsewhere as news, as long as it’s properly cited and credit given to you as the author. You can’t control the headline they add, or anything else about their piece.
Affiliate links and embedded advertising isn’t permitted within a submission.
Submitting an article, write-up or story does not guarantee publication. We reserve the right to reject a submission for any reason at any stage of the process. Please notify us if your piece gets approved for publishing elsewhere.
Try and keep blogs between 500-1000 words.
To make the process quicker, if you haven’t been published before on the site, include a 2 line bio, headshot and an extra image relating to your piece (preferably of you).
We prefer not to edit heavily, but we do reserve the right to edit your article for length, clarity or grammar and to format it to make it consistent with our other Queentributions.
We may make these changes without notice to you.
We won’t change the overall content of your article, and we can’t be responsible for any inaccuracies you include.
If we have extra questions, we will return your submission for you to fix.
Your content is not guaranteed to stay on the website forever and ever- be sure to republish your work yourself on your own platform, to save it permanently.
How to submit
Please keep your writing as plain text. Just put it in the body of your email message, or attach a Word doc if you must.
Submissions which are way too long and will require too much editing may not be read or considered.
Please format your writing simply and remember the formatting will be stripped before being published (bold headlines, paragraph indentations etc.)
Now you’ve read the boring stuff, Constance wants to send one last message from her to you: “Thank you so much for sharing your writing with us. Creativity is so important and brave, and I think you’re awesome.”
NEVER stop writing, and submittingeverywhere, even if we’re not able to publish you this time. Your words don’t need to start out on a big platform, to change someone’s life.
