Frequently Asked Questions
There are several ways that you can contribute to Muse Magazine. We feature monthly posts for our different segments and would love to hear your ideas. Our Muse Posts generally run 300-500 words long, and never exceed 1000 words. We are hoping some of our Guest Writers and Editors will become regular Muse Contributors. Please send a very brief story idea to firstname.lastname@example.org. If your story is a fit, we will ask for a full submission with photos and bio.
Our Muse Contributors are asked to commit to a writing frequency of every other month or once a month. You will submit topics for articles to our online editor by the last week of the month for the upcoming month and are expected to meet the assigned deadlines.
Once you submit an article, you will be notified of any edits and also informed of when it is expected to post. Scheduling of articles is subject to change depending on how topics coincide with cultural events or other unforeseen changes.
We currently do not offer compensation for online articles. We do try to support the work of our writers through social media PR.
If you have a story or product that you feel especially embodies the Muse mission or aesthetic, we would love to hear from you! There is no guarantee that we will feature any submission, but we diligently screen all emails and requests. Please contact email@example.com with “Muse Website Feature Request” in the subject line.
We’re always looking for original photographs to use with our online articles. If you’re a photographer who feels they would be a good fit for the Muse aesthetic, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with “Interested Muse Photographer” in the subject line and a link to your website and/or portfolio.
Before submitting, we also ask that you note the following:
1. By submitting your photo to our group, you are granting us permission to use your photo on our website.
2. We will give you credit at the bottom of the article where we use the photo, so please be sure to provide us with your name (as you’d like it to appear), as well as a link you’d like us to send our readers to.
3. When you submit your photos, they will go into a queue for approval by one of our team members to ensure that the photos are appropriate in content, as well as a good fit for our overall aesthetic.
Many of the photos we use on this site are found via Pinterest and various blogs. We always cite the source to the best of our ability, but unfortunately photos are not often properly credited. If you see an image on our site that belongs to you—or if you know who it belongs to—please email email@example.com to correct the photo credit.
