Guest Post Information

Hi everyone! As our blog grows, we are finding a bit of structure is needed. Below are some guidelines for guest posting that you may find helpful.  

Want Becca or Angela to visit your blog? 

Becca and I love connecting with writers on their blogs and we are always open to guest posting, provided time allows us to. You can contact us through out Profile pages in the sidebar.

Looking to Guest Post on The Bookshelf Muse? 

We are happy to welcome writers & industry professionals to the blog! However, due to the sheer amount of requests we receive, we are selective in the content that appears. Here are some tips that might determine if we are the right fit for you:

  • We are an education-focused resource blog for writers. Posts we accept target an aspect of Writing, Publishing, Marketing or Promotion and offers fresh insight to our readers.
  • We do not openly promote, except in the rare circumstance.
  • Occasionally we will review books that appeal to us, but often we just don't have time (sorry!)
  • Publicists, please do not send us books unsolicited or send form letters inviting us to review. Take the time to understand who we are and what our blog focuses on.
  • Due to the large number of writing blogs out there and the advice that's generously being shared, we want to make sure that we aren't recycling the same old tips. The content that we post needs to be practical and fresh, providing information for writers that is in some way new or profound.
 Still interested? We'd love to hear from you! All we need is for you to help us stay organized by filling out this FORM.
