So you want to write for The Sow Collective?

Thank you for considering sharing your knowledge on The Sow Collective platform -- we can't wait to see your work and spread the word about your expertise. Before you pitch or send a draft please review these guidelines to best ensure your work is seen.

 

Pitches:

Unless otherwise instructed, all emailed pitches should have a subject line that begins with "PITCH:" followed by your expertise and idea. The proposed article should be original and not posted elsewhere. 

  • An example subject line would be: "PITCH: Facebook ad expert with tips on how to leverage your page reach". This helps us match your ideas based on our content calendar.

  • Bylines: We do not accept promotional pitches nor promotional links. All articles are accompanied by a byline in which the author may supply a related, do-follow backlink to their portfolio.


Submissions:

If your pitch is accepted, please prepare to submit your draft and byline within 14 days. Your work must be original and fact-checked. We reserve the right to edit or remove your work as fit for TSC voice and goals. Article guidelines:

  • Word Count: Minimum 750 words

  • Voice & Language: The Sow Collective delivers resourceful information to entrepreneurs in a casual, yet technical voice. Please use American English and the Oxford comma in your work.

  • Links: Please include 1-3 high-quality external links. To determine a link's spam score, refer to Moz Link Explorer.

 

While we try our best to acknowledge every pitch, if you haven't heard from us in 2 weeks, we welcome you to to pitch elsewhere.
