How to submit your article:
- First and foremost, you must have a valid email address that belongs to you personally. While most of us have at least one email, if you do not have one, you can easily get a FREE email address from the following:
- Write your article in Microsoft Word, WordPad, Notepad, in other words, a quality text editor. Adobe pdf files are also acceptable.
- Include a catchy title at the top of your article.
- Either attached to your article, or in a separate text document, submit how you want your byline to read. That is: how you want your name to appear below the article's title. Include any title or credential with your name (if you are a doctor please include Dr. before your name). If you are the owner of a business, an author of a book(s), an instructor, you may briefly include this information after a comma (,) following your name or on a second line below your name.
- While a pen name is acceptable, we will need your real name for our files in order for your article to be considered.
- Many authors want to include an "About the Author" to describe themselves and what they do. You can attach your "About the Author" to your article or on a separate text document. Include any pertinent information about yourself that you want to make public. Include links and even include a picture of yourself if you wish. We will include your description and your image, if you include a picture of yourself, on your Author's Page on our website. In addition to a description of yourself and an image of yourself, you may include links to any web addresses where readers can access you or your product(s). Examples include links to your website(s) that you own, business website(s), that you operate, blog(s) that you own, and also social media access (Facebook page, Twitter page, etc.), book links if you are an author (Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Google Books, etc.).
- All links must include the full url (web address) and must work when clicked. If any of your web addresses change, once published, contact us and let us know to make the correction. Any links that do not work or that stop working will be permanently removed.
- Assemble any images or illustrations you want to include with your article. They must be in .jpg, .png, .gif, or another web-acceptable file format. Again, no adult content!
- Attach all your materials to an email with the subject line reading:
Article submission for approval to The Practical Vegetarian
- Email to:
- We will notify you, via your email address, when we have received your article. After careful consideration, if we approve your article, we will notify you of approval. While we make every effort to let you know quickly, please give us a few days to make a decision. We may contact you with further questions if necessary.
- Once your article is published, we will contact you with the link to your article and other information.
- While we may contact you if your article is rejected, do not expect it. In some cases, we will let you know the reasons for rejection and what you can do to improve for the future. But, again, do not expect a rejection notification. However, just because we have not approved one of your articles, do not stop trying. Work at your writing and please submit another article idea in the future/ THANK YOU FOR CONSIDERING THE PRACTICAL VEGETARIAN!
