How to submit to Offbeat Home:

Offbeat Home & Life is about sharing the voice of nontraditional types, and so we're always looking for words and photos from folks from a wide range of backgrounds, lifestyles, cultures, and experiences. If you've ever read this site and thought, "But there's no one here who reflects MY lifestyle!" …then it's time to get submitting!

Alternately, if you've ever read a post here and thought "That sucks, I could do better…" then it's DEFINITELY time to get submitting. 🙂

Blog posts

If you've got a unique perspective to share, we'd love to read it! We're especially interested in posts written by POC, and writing that shares the experiences of those who identify as LGBTQA, disabled, plus size, nonbinary, and otherwise under-represented in the mainstream media.

A few guidelines:

  • Blog posts should be 500-1000 words
  • It's fine to submit something you wrote for another blog — just be sure to include a link to the original post!
  • You don't need to be a professional writer, but your post should have a thoughtful, specific focus and narrative structure. Be conscientious about capitalization, proofreading, spelling, etc.
  • Posts may be edited for length and tone
  • We are not able to pay for guestposts, but we will link your personal website. (TO REPEAT:.)

 Submit a guestpost!
