Thank you for considering to write for us!

Blogging is a great way to gain clips, get exposure, and gain credibility. While Writer’s Fun Zone doesn’t pay writers, we do vet your article for good writing, quality content, and usefulness to our readers. In exchange for posting on our blog, you get exposure, tweeted about, mentioned on Facebook, and all the rights revert back to you after one week after publication.

We don’t take all comers! And here’s the reason why:

Writer’s Fun Zone is here to provide useful and quality content to aspiring and active writers. Let’s make writing fun and an adventure! We strive to shed light on the perilous path of writing your book, book marketing and publishing. And most importantly, we aim to bring a smile to our reader’s faces.

Because: we humans learn best when we’re having fun!

**Once approved, we will post your article within 1014 days, depending on what else is scheduled.

Published authors, you are also invited to do a contest or giveaway from this blog! Let me know if you’d like to do that when you submit.
