Write for us
Want to write for Gaia? We invite bloggers, writers and passionate community members to build their reputation and their brand by submitting original content for publication on Gaia. As part of your submission, you’ll receive your own byline. Writers also will receive their own bio page with links to all published Gaia articles, a link back to their site, mentions in our member newsletters, and shout-outs across our social media channels.
What We Offer
- We are the largest online source for conscious media:
- 2 million+ page views monthly
- 800k+ Facebook fans on Gaia and My Yoga Online combined
- 22k+ Twitter followers on Gaia and My Yoga Online combined
- Highly targeted global audience
- Top posts will be promoted on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram, and the writer’s social handles will be tagged along with each post.
- All writers will receive full credit through a byline at the bottom of the article with links to their site.
- Regular contributors (2+ articles per month) will receive a complimentary annual subscription to Gaia for the duration of their contributions.
What We Require
- Writers are encouraged to promote their articles through email, websites, newsletters and social media.
- Feel free to submit articles of all lengths as we do not have a minimum or maximum word count; however, we do prefer articles in the range of 250-900 words, as they tend to be more popular among our readers.
- We only accept unique content that has not been published elsewhere. We manually check every post before publishing. Articles must not be subsequently posted elsewhere and must remain unique to Gaia.com.
- Please note that we don't post articles directly promoting products or services and will not include promotional links with the article content.
- One space only after a period.
- We do allow links to make your post richer by supporting statements or serving as references; however, we do not publish external links that are promotional or commercial in nature within the article content. We reserve the right to edit all links contained within article content.
- Please submit your article as a Microsoft Word Document, with as little formatting (no italics, no center alignment, etc.) as possible.
- Please include a working title to your submission. We occasionally revise titles to make sure your article gets the most hits and reads possible.
- Please include a brief byline and photo of yourself.
- Use clear, concise language in your title and throughout your article. Articles that include numbered lists in the title and body of the text are often popular with our readers (e.g. 5 Tips to Begin a Meditation Practice, 4 Ways to Read your Aura).
- Based on the length of your article, please include working subheadings to help break up the piece into a more digestible form for our readers.
- Our editorial staff reserves the right to edit your text for grammar, clarity, punctuation and format.
