Welcome to The Rival’s home for citizen journalism; the place for anyone to hone their writing skills, get creative, and add published work to their resume. Here’s how to get started:
- Get writing!
Write about anything you want. Choose a topic you care about and put together 600 words (or less) in your authentic voice. Make it informative, entertaining, funny, opinionated, passionate, or some combination of all of the above. Don’t forget to proofread!
- Headline it.
Give your work a title that makes the reader want to know more.
- Provide an image.
Find a picture that will be associated with your work. Make sure that it’s legally acquired, AKA available for re-use from Google image or Flickr, or a photo you took yourself.
- Send it in!
When you’re ready for your work to be reviewed, send it to our Contributing Editor Bizzy, at firstname.lastname@example.org. She will review your work and let you know if your article has been approved or not.
ABOVE ALL, HAVE FUN AND CARE ABOUT YOUR WORK!
If you’re unsure about the process or want to pitch an idea before writing, feel free to email Bizzy with your questions!
Want to Keep Writing?
You can submit as often as you like – if we love what you do we may have a spot for you on our staff!
Thank you for sharing your skills with The Rival. We look forward to seeing your work!!
