Share Your Story

a beauty full mind is all about filling up on goodness, from you and you and you. If you’d like to share a story or article, please read on for submission guidelines. Or, send a note to hello@abeautyfullmind.com if you have questions (or just want a hug).

Submission

Before you start writing, please send me an email with your story idea – this is to see if it’s a good fit for the site. I’ll get back to you as soon as I can, perhaps with a few extra notes if necessary.

Please try to keep your articles to no more than 800 words. It’s not that we don’t love your words, but online readers tend to start phasing out after about 600-800 words, and I wouldn’t want your lovely writing to go unloved!

Then, email the article back to me. I might make a few good edits for grammar, spelling and style. If the article isn’t quite fitting with the site, I might send it back to you for a little rework (don’t worry, I won’t be horrible!)

Please also send a good, clear photo of yourself (as a JPG or PNG), a short biography and any social media links you’d like to connect to.

If you have a particular image you would like to accompany your story, please also feel free to send it along. Article images should be at least 650px in width. Please make sure you have permission to use these images or that they are copyright-free. Also indicate the source of the image, so it can be credited properly.

Things to note

You’re welcome to submit articles that have previously been published elsewhere. Please ensure that you have permission to republish. I’d be happy to add a note at the end of the article indicating where it was first published and a linkback to the original.

No pornography, hate-speech of any kind (racist, homophobic, sexist or discriminatory in any way). I reserve the right not to publish any material that is deemed offensive.

As much as I’d love to help you get your own work and message out there, please don’t use this space to sell. I’d be happy to include links to your websites and social media account, and other details on what you do within your bio.

Payment

I’m afraid we can’t pay at the moment. a beauty full mind has been set up as a writing community, with the hope of creating a safe, interactive space for anyone who wishes to challenge and change the discussions on beauty. We’d be happy to help you connect readers to your other works online and social media accounts (via your bio that accompanies each article), and the exposure of having your writing published here.

Some last words

Things evolve and change, so these guidelines may shift a little over time. Please bear with me as I finetune the process and make it as easy as possible for everyone to be a part of the conversations we hope to inspire here. As always, feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or just wish to have a chat.
