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.
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?

Best wishes for your book 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.
