General Writing Tips

Your submission is more likely to be published if:

  • Covers an original topic in 600-1000 words or more. If the article is a guide it can be up to 6000 words.
  • The topic should cover sexy, sexual, and sex advice even if it is an article on relationships. While other advice is cool to add, don’t forget we are a Sexuality Educational e-zine for adults!
  • Has a great title [H1]. Keep title length to under 4 words if possible!
  • A short opening paragraph that describes what the article is about (SEO friendly, using title key words).

  • Is broken into subheadings [H2, H3, H4…]
  • Uses keywords and titles that are search engine friendly.
  • Is broken up by other visual media content including images, videos, infographics, diagrams, etc…
