I welcome & encourage guest writers to be published occasionally on this blog, because as much as I love writing, I know there are many people out there who share with me in that love & I want to be able to give them a place to share it. Along with enjoying reading what others have to say and the perspectives they bring, my hope is that providing this page on the blog would serve as an opportunity for anyone who may want to get their own writing out there. It is important for all of us to have our minds and thoughts stirred up and challenged by people who have different passions, perspectives, and opinions than us, as well as by those who share the same ones – after all, that is what the body of Christ is made up of – women and men of all ages, from all walks of life, who are beautifully & wonderfully different.
Please submit your guest post below after you have thoroughly read and agree to the guidelines.
Guidelines: This form is to be used for you to share your writing with myself and with the world. If you are familiar with this blog, you know that I write about a variety of different topics, so you are welcome to do the same in your submission. Examples of things that may coincide with what I typically write about include posts about topics relating to mental health + mental illness, recovery, church ministry, social justice, advocacy of any kind, your call story, a prayer or devotion, any inspiration/wisdom you care to share, or maybe a story you have of an experience or encounter that taught you lessons you would like to share with others. Your post submission should be between 200 – 2,000 words. If your post includes sensitive material, please include a trigger warning. I welcome writing from those of all ages, though I do prefer that if you are under the age of 16, you have an adult aware of your submission. The post you submit must be an original (i.e the content you submit must be your own writing and if you use quotes from others, it must be credited & preferably cited). Please also do not submit any writing that has previously been published on other sites and / or magazines, blogs, etc.
Above all, know that my ultimate goal for this blog is for it to contain writing that spreads Love & Hope. I know that you can contribute to that goal, and I look forward to reading the wonderful thoughts and perspectives you have!
If your post is chosen for publication on the blog of Ashley N. Oliver, please be assured that you will be contacted before anything further is done with your writing.
