Try to keep a formal writing style that is descriptive and interesting for the reader. Using complex words is great, however, if you are not good with them to try to avoid using them. Try to have a good grammar as well as trying to keep a positive attitude whilst writing. We do not have complex guidelines as we like to offer creative freedom to the writer.
We incline towards keeping a clean and premium look to our articles so please avoid adding any links to other articles or sources that are not mandatory. Before submitting an article please take a look at various articles within the publication and get a feeling for the sort of articles and writers we sought after.
Just make sure to use one picture or photo between the title and the main body. You must use at least one picture or photo. The Image that you use must be copyright free. The image between the title/subtitle and the main body will be the featured photo for the article. If possible, we want you to use images/pictures that give an accurate representation of the context within the article. All the images/pictures used must have a caption that describes:
- What is represents
- The date (if known)

If your article is over 1000 words try to break the text into paragraphs as well as the use of subheadings. However, you can also use subheadings even with articles that are lower than 1000 words.
