Become Part of The Collective
We are looking for experienced writers who love popular culture and want to share their thoughts with fellow geeks around the world. Our worldwide audience is mainly composed of fans of popular culture, television, film, literature and transformative works. Please visit our social media sites (Twitter, and Tumblr) and read through a few posts to get a feel for our style and personality.
If you would like to write for us, please read the following Submission Guidelines and fill out the form at the bottom.
Submission Guidelines FAQ
How do I submit an idea for a blog post?
Fill out the form at the bottom of this page and spare no detail on what you would like to write. One of our admins will respond to you within a day or two, and work with you on developing your piece and setting up a tentative post date. You will be required to submit a draft in Google Doc format at least one week before posting.
What is your typical word count?
Please keep the word count under 1000 words.
What about images, videos, and permissions?
We love multimedia posts. Images, video clips, and gifs are encouraged by our admins. Please include links to the media* you would like to use in your submissions.
*Always get permission to use someone else’s work. This includes, but is not limited to: fiction, quotes, photography, edits, fanart, etc. If you didn’t create it, ask permission.
Do I get paid?
Unfortunately, we cannot pay our contributors at this time, but we are happy to include links to any/all of your social media accounts and to promote your writing in any way that we can.
What about grammar?
Proper grammar and punctuation are appreciated so that minimal editing is required. If you struggle with grammar, try Grammarly. It’s free.
How do I become a staff writer?
If, after writing for us a few times, you would like to become a regularly featured writer, please contact one of our admins at admin(@)acollectivemind.com and we will be happy to discuss it with you.
