Do you love writing? Are you an Avid craft maker or artist?
At Craft + Leisure, we are super passionate about helping others by providing tutorials, guides, and other in-depth articles to other aspiring crafters and homemakers.
It would be nearly impossible to cover every category and type of craft out there so we turn to our readers and fellow creators out there to help share and spread that knowledge, we also know how costly crafting can be and love to help by compensating contributors. If crafting is your passion and you love sharing your knowledge with others you may be a perfect contributor to Craft + Leisure.
We are currently looking for experts in every crafting category who can write long, thorough and actionable guides about different topics related to arts and crafts. We understand that most creators are not usually dedicated to one craft and want to create a destination they trust to get informative guides and tutorials for just about any craft out there.
That being said, we are typically NOT LOOKING FOR COPYWRITERs, no offense. What we want is an expert who simply KNOWS THEIR CRAFTS, rather than one who simply reads from other sources on the Web and repackages that as his/her own work. There’s a difference between research and outright copying. We are not looking for articles with a bunch of filler content either, it should be dense with useful information.
The submission guidelines for posts would certainly not all be the same. Some guides would go on to be more than 5000 words while others would be less than 1500 words but usually at least 800-1,000. The topic will really determine the length. Beautifully framed pictures to accompany your posts are also encouraged, especially for tutorials.
Examples of Topics:
- Beginners Guide To “X Topic”
- How To “Execute X Technique”
- Advanced Techniques/Guides to “X Topic”
- Compilation Posts of Cool Crafting Ideas
- Propose Your Own Article
If this is something you are interested in, send us a message via our contact form with a brief bio and area of expertise. You can also submit your article idea if you already have something in mind.
Final word, we understand there are many writers participating in guest posting for the purpose of back-links. We are not opposed to accepting articles that contain back-links but it is our experience across our web properties that these are usually the lowest quality articles we receive and as fair warning, these posts are often rejected.
Happy crafting and we look forward to hearing from you!
