Be An Expert Writer

Opal magazines strive to provide content that is not only relevant for writers and authors, but is also a deeper dive into a subject. Our Expert Writers are typically professional writers and published authors who provide this ‘deep dive’ into the subject that they are experts in. A benefit to being an Expert Writer in the Opal magazines is establishing branding and a rapport with your readership.
