I’m stoked that you’re wanting to collaborate with me here on TPC in the form of writing a guest article. Here’s the recipe to getting published here on the site 🙂
First things first…
Does your article belong here?
TPC is about building a community of artists dedicated to wielding the power of the story against injustice, prejudice, and passivity in the world around them.
Picture yourself walking into a packed out college auditorium. A hush falls over the room as every student stares, pens and pencils at the ready, to take in your every word.
What would you want to say?
For guest posts this means helping creatives tell stories that make an impact. Articles centered on craft development, making a point through art, addressing an issue through art, etc. are all fair game. It’s about artists helping artists.
The key is to talk about the aspect of creativity that you’re most stoked about. I strongly recommend reading at least 3-5 articles to get a general idea of what a post typically looks like.
Still in? Great!
Here’s the workflow:
- You and I land on a topic
- You write on that topic in a Google doc.
- When you’re ready for me to look over it, share it with averyATthirdpersoncreativeDOTcom
- We’ll work together to finish it out and get you published!
Third Person Creative does not post copyrighted material without consent. If you wish to include a copyrighted image for which you have obtained permission for please indicate that in the Google Doc.
All images (not taken by you) need to include a source link, the photographers name, and a valid license (e.g. creative-commons).
Let me level with you…
I recognize that this is a fairly open-ended invitation. That’s intentional. While I could just hand you a topic and ask you to write about it (which I’m willing to do if you need that), I start with the ball in your court to give you a chance to talk about your passion.
I do this because it’s that passion that infuses stories with the things that change the world. And that’s the business I want to be in.
Feel free to shoot me an email to talk over your topic before you start writing. I love helping would-be-guest posters land on ideas.
