Length: Minimum 800, maximum 3500 words
Include a 6 to 12-word headline with the main topic/keyword in it. It should compel the reader to want to read. Don’t get too crazy with the headline because we’ll probably edit it slightly anyway.
The opening should make the reader want to continue reading. For instance, you could open with a problem and hint at a solution you gained from an experience.
Use sub-headings to break up your article. Sub-headings also give the reader a chance to scan the article to see if they want to continue. These should also compel the reader to want to continue.
Finish the article with a conclusion that reiterates the main points or takeaways of your article.
Aside from the one link to your website or social media account in your bio, you may include one external link in your article.
