So you want to contribute to Envsion Magazine?
Well you’re in luck, because we’re always on the lookout to add some awesome content and talent to our team of Contributors!
But before you start writing, let’s get on the same page, shall we?
First item of business: Via the contributor form below, send us a brief pitch for your article idea and if we like your idea, we will invite you to contribute. Please note, send the idea alone and not the finished article.
- A suggestion for a headline for your intended article.
- One to two sentences summarising the main idea of the article and a basic outline of what direction/angle you want to take with the article.
We take great pride in delivering quality content to the Envsion Magazine community. So we’re looking for next-level insights from experts and top freelancers who have great advice to offer and a knack for writing.
Think you’ve got the flair? Read on.
PLEASE NOTE: We typically respond to contribution requests within one week. We endeavour to respond to every contribution request sent to us. However, at times we may get overwhelmed and we can only respond to those requests we choose to move forward with.
What we look for
1. It has to be high quality
2. It’s gotta be your original work
This one is a no-brainer. If your article has been published anywhere else before, we don’t want it. We also do not accept pieces that include re-hashed content from other articles without proper attribution as this constitutes plagiarism. The content must have a unique angle, be well researched or draws firsthand insights for the bylined author.
3. Personalise it
Tell our readers all about your failures, successes, and lessons drawn. We will know if you’re detached from the readers. Get real and personal and we will be sold because we LOVE authentic stories (of success and failure) as this type of content connects with readers. Readers should have a “That’s me!” moment when they read your piece.
4. You got to be knowledgeable about what you write on
5. Speak to your audience’s experiences
Your audience should find actionable insights from your writing. Be they entrepreneurs, career makers, or young people grappling with a startup, they should envision success, failure, pitfalls, and markers of success that appeals to their everyday journey.
6. It’s actionable
Our main requirement is that your article provides useful and actionable advice to our audience. Don’t tell them about the state of unemployment among the youth, instead, tell them what they can do about it.
7. In-depth but concise
Our features tend to give deep insights, details, and elaborate analysis. We like for our content to give the reader an immersive experience but don’t bore them with repetitiveness.
We are big fans of storytelling. Our readers want to visualize events unfolding in your article. Don’t be uptight in your writing; Instead, use language cues that make your writing suave and succinct.
9. Get social with us
You should be ready to do your part to promote your article on social media. Let everyone in your networks know about it. Of course we will do our part to share your article with our mailing list as well as promote it across our own social media. Together we can make your article a massive success!
10. Re-posting and Content rights
We do not own the rights to your piece. Once published on our Website, you’re permitted to re-post your article on any other websites or media outlets as long as you acknowledge that we published it first. It would be nice to provide a link that will redirect the readers to your original article on our website or blog.
