Our Mission:

MeetMindful strives to connect people who crave more meaningful experiences and relationships in their lives. Everything we do is designed to empower people to make conscious and confident choices with everyday living and the relationships that weave through it.

Content Guidelines:

Audience: MeetMindful readers strive to be the best version of themselves through active, conscious, healthy, and sustainable lifestyles. They seek resources that are authentic, informative, and inspirational—content that fosters self-discovery through relationships and experiences.

Topics: We’re a relationships company designed to help people live fuller lives. We approach all topics—from deepening our relationships to spiritual practices—with a mindful lens. Our content is focused primarily on five areas:

  • Meaningful Connections
  • Healthy Relationships
  • Building Friendships & Community
  • Spirituality & Mindfulness
  • Societal Disconnection (ex: loneliness, social anxiety, isolation)

Tone: We are curating content that sinks deep into matters of a life well-lived—human connection, holistic health, spiritual practice, etc—and as such, the tone should be conversational, clear, informative, and credible.

A few examples of the kind of deep writing (and formatting) we’re after:

That said, we want you to keep it real. Your writing should naturally flow using a tone you would use with a friend.

Inclusivity: We strive to publish articles that ​feel inclusive for all of our readers, so we ask that the work you submit is gender neutral whenever possible.​ We see a much more positive response from our readers when we avoid promoting stereotypical male/female ​gender ​roles or heteronormative relationships​ exclusively. Everyone is welcome here 🙂

Original Content: At this time, MeetMindful publishes original content only.

Length: 700-1500 words

Editing: To maintain coherence across our library of content, we reserve the right to edit all submitted material. If significant changes are required, we may contact you to discuss edits, revisions, or a submission retraction.

External Links: The short answer: We don’t include them. The exception: If/when you’re linking to supporting materials (think peer-reviewed articles, studies, etc.) that are helpful for the reader’s understanding of the content.

Pictures: Images may be submitted for consideration with your article, but the editorial staff reserves the right to make final decisions. If you are submitting images of any kind, please avoid pictures with copyright restrictions and include the source when sending them our way.

Ownership: MeetMindful retains ownership of all original, published content. If you are interested in re-publishing any content, please inquire at [email protected]

Payment: We do not pay for general submissions, but use available platforms to promote our writers’ work whenever and however possible—this includes features in our monthly newsletter, content partnerships, as well as promotion on FacebookInstagram, and Twitter.

Formatting:

  • To emphasize words or concepts, use bold or italicized font—avoid all CAPS
  • Numbers one through nine should be spelled; 10 begins numeric digits
  • The title of a book, song, movie, etc. should be italicized
  • Do not double space between sentences

Pitching Your Idea:

Email [email protected] with the subject line: PITCH SUBMISSION

In a brief email, introduce yourself, your content idea, potential title(s), and a few sentences summarizing the key points. Please also include any sample links that might help us get familiar with your writing style.

Submitting Your Work:

After your topic has been approved, submit a completed draft in word or pages format to [email protected]

Please include the following with your draft:

  1. A brief, single-paragraph bio with any requested links
  2. A clear, high-resolution headshot
