If you are a South African writer or blogger who is in touch with what is going on in South Africa and around the globe, you can submit an article for publishing in a category of your choosing. Please read the article submission guidelines below.
What should I write about?
Anything on trending topics and important South African issues or world issues. You can write articles on the following topics:
Should I pitch you my idea before writing the post?
Yes, you can pitch an article idea by emailing us.
When will I hear back from you after I send my pitch?
We will try and get back to you as soon as possible.
Have any tips for ensuring my piece is a fit for Media Voice?
Write in an easy to follow manner using catchy titles, short to the point paragraphs and list posts. Try and use headings (H2 & H3) for each section of your posts which gives the reader an idea of what that paragraph is about.
How should I submit my post?
You can submit your post as a word document or a google document.
How long should my posts be?
Posts should be longer than 600 words, written in an easy to read format e.g. using lists and breaking up the content into different shorter sections which focus on different themes or ideas. It should be in format of introduction, body and conclusion. Where you introduce ideas in the introduction, expand on those ideas in the body and then summarize and give actionable advice in the conclusion using points from the body.
Do you pay?
No, at this stage we do not pay contributors. You benefit from exposure which may result in your blog getting sponsored posts from brands in a related niche, traffic to your site and having an online reference you can use in your cv for published works.
Should I include links within the piece?
Yes. You can include links to related content if you think it will be helpful to the reader and you can include links to helpful resources that you mention in your post. Please try and use anchor text when linking to other articles or resources.
Should I write a headline?
Yes, but please note that we may change it so that it is more attention grabbing and optimized for search engines (this will be beneficial to both you, the contributor and Media Voice).
Will you edit my post?
We reserve the right to edit submitted post’s if we identify any errors or areas of improvement but we will try our best to reflect the authors original idea.
Can I repost my submission on my blog?
No, as publishing the exact same content on multiple sites is seen as duplicate content by the major search engines such as Google. It is not good for SEO.
Are you definitely going to publish my piece?
We will only publish articles that are of high quality and are the right fit for Media Voice. If your article is not the right fit for Media Voice we will let you know and you will be free to publish it elsewhere.
Should I include a photo?
You can include quality images to your posts if you have the rights to them and have a link back to the source. If you do not have an image for your post, don’t worry we will find an appropriate image to fit your article.
How to submit a guest post?
Now that you have read our guidelines, you can submit your post to our editor so that it can be reviewed.
