SUBMISSION GUIDELINES


Jewcy welcomes your submissions and pitches.  You can submit an article using the “Submit” button on the top of every page on Jewcy.com.

We want to love what you write – here are some guidelines to work within to help make that happen.

– Jewcy covers 7 broad topics: News, Arts & Culture, Religion & Beliefs, Jewish Food, Social Justice, Family, and Sex & Love.  Your article should clearly fit under one of these topic areas.

– Relevancy. How does your article relate to other people’s lives?  Is it  topical?  How will the information you present change the way others think about things? What is the universal Jewcy takeaway you are trying to get across?  Pretty much without exception, Jewcy will not publish personal essays or rants unless they are really really good.

– Quality. We welcome novice as well as professional writers, but quality is a must.  Please spell check, check your grammar, and maybe have a friend read and edit your article before submitting.  And please note that if you are quoting facts, we need you to link your sources.

– Jewcy will not publish advertisements.  If your article is a pitch or a press release for a program, event, campaign, fundraiser, service, or product, we encourage you to read our ad policies and pricing at http://www.jewcy.com/reach, view the Events section policies , or pitch our Editorial staff on coverage by emailing editor@jewcy.com

– Less is more.  The most successful Jewcy submissions are approximately 500 words.  The formal word limit on submissions is 1,100 – but we suggest aiming for less.
