Call for Guest Writers, Featured Bloggers, Book Reviews & Regular Column Contributors
We are currently seeking writers who would like to submit articles that might be compelling to individuals interested in memoir writing. Articles can be in the form of critical reviews of memoirs or books related to the writing of memoirs, “top 10 lists/tips,” “how to,” articles, pieces on the memoir writing experience, author interviews or any other topic related to the art, craft or business of memoir writing. Submissions can be anywhere from 400-1000 words long, depending on the topic and tone of the article and must be unique; they cannot be published anywhere else on the internet.
In return for your submission you will receive writing credit as well as a link to a blog post, URL or web based published event of your choosing, along with publication of your biography, which can contain hyperlinks, on the page on the NAMW site where your article appears.
If you are interested in writing for NAMW in any type of capacity, you may submit completed articles to Staci@NAMW.org or direct questions regarding this opportunity to the same email, with a subject line of “Guest Writer.”
We are looking forward to hearing from anyone who might be interested in writing as a way to build their author platform or by simply writing to share their experiences with writing via the NAMW website!
