Thank you for your interest in submitting a guest post to Absurdist Fiction.

I accept guest posts on a wide variety of writing topics. Please review my site and my submission guidelines before sending your proposed article.

The Submission Guidelines below give you complete instructions on what to include in your submission. 

 GUEST POST GUIDELINES FOR ABSURDIST FICTION

Thank you for your interest in guest posting for Absurdist Fiction; I’m happy you’re here! To make things easier and less time-consuming for both of us, please read the following guidelines carefully.

  • Only inquire if your blog is related in some way to the following topics: writing, health, personal growth, spirituality, books, self-publishing, science, paranormal, poetry, absurdism, surrealism, or humor.
  • I only accept posts that are beneficial to my readers. They must be nonfiction, creative, inspiring, and motivating. If you are going to send me a How-To post, make sure it is epic! 
  • Length should be between 500 and 1,300 words.
  • The more personable, detailed, positive, entertaining, and helpful your post is, the more likely it will be accepted. (Bonus points for adding little-known facts that benefit your article.)
  • The post must be exclusive to Absurdist Fiction.
  • Double-check your work for spelling, grammar, and typos. If you can’t, let me know, and I’ll send it to the proofreading service.
  • Provide your bio in 3 sentences with one link to your personal blog or to your Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter account.
  • Try not to use links within your actual post; they will be removed during the copying process. I’m interested only in the text! You can add the links at the end of your blog post.
  • I require all guest posters to post a lead-in on their own blog (or social media), usually the first paragraph of a post or a simple mention “I guest posted on Absurdist Fiction today” with a link to the post on my blog.
  • If your guest post is approved and posted, you’ll need to reply to any comments on the post. 

What will not be accepted:

  • Freelancers who want to provide a backlink for another entity.
  • Affiliate links. Guest posts to promote products and/or services.
  • Boring text. 
  • Fiction.
  • Work that must be improved upon or work that is not beneficial to my readers. 

When you submit your proposal, please send the theme and 150-200 words of your post. 

Send to nocluefiction@raynotbradbury.blog

I aim to reply within 3 days, but if you haven’t heard from me, please feel free to send a follow-up e-mail.

Please note: When you send your guest post proposal, please include the following line: “I have read the guidelines for Absurdist Fiction, and I agree to them.” If this line is not included, you will not receive any response. If your post is accepted, you’ll get your payment: 50% when the post is accepted and 50% on the full delivery. Please, send your work only if you agree and can comply with these guidelines.
