Please send a query first to [email protected]. We will not read unsolicited manuscripts. Allow 2-4 weeks for a response. Queries should include the article title, summary, purpose, word count, your writing qualifications, a link to your blog if you have one (so we can get a taste of your writing style), and your contact information. The query should be included in the body of the email, not in an attached file. We will not open an attached file unless we’ve requested it.
If we like your query and ask to see the article, it should range between 600-800 words.
All writing is voluntary. We do not offer compensation. If your submission is accepted for publication, we reserve the right to make edits and changes to it. Additionally, we will have exclusive rights to your article for 60 days after it’s posted on Ungrind. Following the 60 days, we will have non-exclusive rights to the article, and it will remain in our archives.
