Greetings from the team at discover.submittable.com, where we host blog content for creatives! We're interested in sharing your work about the publishing industry, creativity, and digital media. 

If you write about film or photography, we also want to hear from you. Please visit the appropriate submission page for further details.

***

We prefer submissions between 600 and 1,000 words. Submittable offers $50 per post, payable upon publication. We do not pay for re-posts. 

Please get a sense for the kinds of content we appreciate here before sending in work. 

We reserve the right to not publish any work submitted. If you have accompanying artwork, please include it in the submission. We typically respond within 6-8 weeks (often less than that but sometimes more). 

Thanks for your interest in Submittable—we look forward to reading your work.

Congratulations on your publication! 

Submittable would love to help you promote your book while sharing your insights with our audience.

We are seeking pitches for blog content between 600 and 1,000 words from writers with a book published or forthcoming within a year of your submission date. Essays, tips and tricks, listicles, and any other short-form content that offers learning related (even peripherally) to your book is welcome.

**Please note: We're looking for more than just "How I Got My Book Published." Compelling pitches are actionable and take a unique angle on the journey to publication, often with a focus on particular genres and industries, as well as learning that resulted in an adjustment to the writer's approach. Most authors already know they need to submit/pitch widely, make connections, send out their best work, be patient etc. What else?

Examples:

5 Tips for Getting the Book Cover You Love (Or at Least Can Get Behind) - Kimi Eisele

Lessons I Learned in Writing My #Metoo Story - Aaron Hamburger

Poems That Helped Me Write Novels - Anca L. Szilágyi

How to Write a Book of Despairing Poems - Jason Morphew

Please refer to our Discover site to get a sense for the style of articles we prefer. 

Best wishes for your book and we look forward to hearing from you!

Congratulations on getting your work out there! Perhaps you have an art exhibit coming up, you just performed a new standup routine live, or your band finally landed a music festival. 

Submittable would love to help you promote your creative work while sharing your insights with our audience. We are seeking pitches for blog content between 600 and 1,000 words from creatives with some sort of public, art-related work either released or forthcoming within a year of your submission date.  

Essays, tips and tricks, listicles, and any other short-form content that offers learning related (even peripherally) to your creative work is welcome. 

We're looking for more than just "How I Got My First Art Show." Compelling pitches are actionable and take a unique angle on the creative's journey. Most artists and performers already know they need to work hard, make connections, find an audience, be patient etc. What else can you offer? What learning, specific to your craft or industry would really help others succeed (or at least avoid major pitfalls)?

Also, while we encourage you to talk about your project that is recent or forthcoming, your blog post should not focus solely on it, but rather use it as a lens through which readers may learn about a topic in creating and the arts.

**Please note: This is a new section for our blog so we're not sure what it will look like yet—we're excited to build it with you! For this reason we can't offer examples really but please refer to our Discover site to get an overall sense for the style of articles we prefer. 

**Please also note: This call is NOT for creatives who want to write about writing and publishing. Kindly direct those materials to other open blog calls.

Best wishes with your creative work and we look forward to hearing from you!

We’re always on the lookout for short, engaging essays. We tend to favor work about the life, work, and process of writing, publishing, visual art, or any other creative pursuit. We’re also interested in the interplay of the arts and tech, whether drawn from your personal experience, or from observations of the world at large. Often, though, we don’t know what we’re looking for until we see it, so feel free to send something our way that we might find to be unexpectedly perfect for our blog and readership. 

We’re interested in reviews of books about publishing, writing, or digital media, and prefer forthcoming titles, or books that have been published within the last year. We will consider reviews of older books that may have fallen in obscurity, and that you feel deserve to see the light of day again. We rarely review self-published or e-book-only titles, but if you believe you can make a case to us for why a specific book should be reviewed, we’re happy to hear it.
Got an arts- or tech-industry individual (or team) whom you’d like to interview? We’re looking for interviews of creators, tastemakers, visionaries, or anyone else whose work intersects with our company’s focus.
