Articles inform and educate our readers about writing, publishing, marketing, and editing.
We are looking for exceptionally well-written content with a new slant or new information for Canadian authors and writers.

An article does not promote any product, service, or brand. Articles should be no longer than 1200 words in length. An article will not have any logos or business links and your business name will not appear in your byline.
Example of acceptable byline: Jane Doe, Best-selling Author
Photos: We will often provide a stock photo to accompany the article if one is not provided.

*If you are looking for an opportunity to brand your business or service with us by writing monthly advertorials, see our Brand With Opal Publishing page.
