We welcome pitches from anyone who’d like to be a contributor. Check out our categories at the top of the page to see the kinds of topics we love.
To pitch us, submit a 25-50 word abstract to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please also include links to your writing samples. We will only accept content that has not been published before, and our pieces usually come in at around 700 words.
Read through what we’ve been publishing to make sure your idea is new and unique. For example, “Does meditation help with stress?” is not an original pitch. (For the record, yes it does.)
A little about our tone and what we publish:
- We are kind, but not earnest.
- We are curious and never insistent.
- We like stories that are unexpected, but also give readers that “me too!” moment.
- Not every story has to be about meditation. In fact, many of them are about something else entirely.
- We like to see the rawness of emotions, not the watered-down, holiday card version.
- We like our stories to be accompanied by credible research, conversations with experts or history.
- We try to stay away from anything too preachy or mystical. We’re more inclined to include pieces on neurology than chakras.
- We try to reserve very specific articles on the actual practice of meditation for our co-founder, Andy Puddicombe, and articles on the detailed science behind meditation for our staff scientists.
Still interested? Write us at email@example.com. Please know we receive many interesting pitches, so it may take us some time to reply.
