Write for Start a Non-Profit


So you want to write for Start a Non-Profit? If you have some epic content that the iSAN audience will enjoy, I’d love to feature it. (Just have a tip? If you just have a story you’d like to tell me about, contact me here)

Before you run off to the nearest post office to send me your ideas or posts, I’d like to give you some key steps to increase the chances of being published on iSAN.

Here are a few, easy-to-follow guidelines:

  • Read the other posts & follow them as a guide. I like to provide immense amounts of information and helpful advice for the iSAN community in a clean and easy to read format. Try to stay away from long, essay type posts. Make your content “bloggy” and “shareable”.
  • You can include useful links, but don’t overdo it. Please leave out affiliate links and limit the amount of shameless self-promotion. Links to other extremely helpful resources are great though.
  • Include a two sentence bio. I’ll use this at the end of the post if it is published. In the bio you may also include one link to your site and one link to a social media account of your choosing.
  • Make sure what you write fits into existing categories. Take a look at the categories of the posts here on i Start a Non-Profit (non-profit newsletter, getting started, operations, best nonprofits, etc.) and try to pick something not covered extensively before.
  • Include a high-quality image. Make sure you have the rights to the image and if it from a creative commons, include a link to the creator. Make sure the image is at least 934 x 622.
  • Send in a completed post in the HTML format ready to paste it into WordPress.
  • Name the file “iSAN Guest Post – Your Name Here – Topic Name Here”. The easier you make it on the i Start a Non-Profit publishing team, the more likely you are to have something posted.
  • Submit your guest post by clicking below and emailing me. Don’t email asking if you can write for i Start a Non-Profit. If you’d like to write a guest post, please write it up, and email. I’ll get back to you ASAP.

I look forward to seeing what you write and hopefully featuring it here on i Start a Non-Profit!
