How long does it have to be?

The minimum word count is 250 words. Longer submissions have a greater chance of being included as a feature post and in our print publications. Don’t worry too much about a word count; focus on the story you are going to tell.

Do I have to be a professional writer?

No! We want you to concentrate on the accuracy and originality of your content. On staff at Babcox Media, we have more than a dozen veteran editors who can polish your submission for grammar and style. After submission, an editor will be assigned to you.

  • Be original. We want fresh and exclusive content from you.
  • Be regular. We are looking for consistent submissions so we can help you build a following.
