Write for Us

 

Write for us courtney dercqu

 

I’ve been fortunate to connect with countless writers across the country who continually inspire me to put my content out there. A few years back, I never thought that was possible. I would write and write and write and felt like no one would give me a chance to prove what I was capable of.

After writing for amazing platforms like Thought Catalog, Elite Daily, Mogul, working as a Content and Community intern and later – contracted lead – for Mogul, a published e-book and featured writer in a book by Thought Catalog called Forever: Essays About Soulmates, Love and Finding Your Forever Person, I realized that writing can absolutely take you to heights you never deemed possible. I’ve had content go viral, gaining worldwide celebrity attention, shared candid stories about my struggles with fertility, divorce, grief, and marriage with so many women that it’s only confirmed that this is what I’m meant to be doing.

At my core, I’m grateful for that first opportunity I was given back in February of 2014 when Thought Catalog accepted and published my very first article. It opened the doors to networking with editors of Mogul, Real Talk and countless other writers who exposed me to a whole plethora of opportunities.

Social Media Promotion

Whether you’re a new blogger (welcome) or seasoned and interested in guest-posting, I’d love to be able to share your words here. In return, I will link back to your personal blog and add links to all of your social media accounts. I will promote your content on my personal social media accounts – Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.

SEO Promotion

I am a full-time Content Marketing Strategist, working within the marketing field. I will make sure your post comes with appropriate H1, H2, and H3 Headers, conduct keyword research to highlight your content’s theme and make sure that it gets recognized by Google search engines. I will provide necessary alt text to any photos you provide. Please make sure, that if you do include any photos, they are safe and appropriate and something you own.

Guidelines to Guest Posting

At this time, I, unfortunately, am unable to pay any guest-writers, but one day that will change! I accept contents of all kinds, but submissions must be reviewed first to ensure they meet my site’s guidelines.

Topics I will accept include personal narratives about divorce, marriage, engagements, grieving, children, political opinions and millennial lifestyle.

I will not promote or accept any content that is hateful, derogatory, and NSFW.

Where to Send Submissions

Please send me a pitch at courtney.dercqu@gmail.com.

I look forward to writing with you soon!
