How to Submit Pitches as a Guest Blogger or Guest Writer

Send pitches to: editorial (at) beerconnoisseur (dot) com

Have you ever found yourself thinking, "I have some great stories to tell, but I don't know where to start"? You are in the right place. We are not necessarily looking for beverage experts or a brewing degree, just a genuine passion for writing with your inspiration.

Submit your pitch as a guest blog if the above describes your writing experience.

Journalists, marketers, public relations professionals, and industry experts for companies and organizations that are interested in contributing content about their field should submit pitches as a guest writer. Topics can be educational, introduce products and services, provide expert insights and more.

Content submitted as a guest writer is typically produced in coordination with our editorial department. Or it may fall under our paid guest blog program.

*Please note that we charge to add dofollow backlinks in guest content. Our rates for SEO anchored link insertions, or guest blogs that include dofollow backlinks, can be found in our media guide.

Here are the steps for submitting topic pitches:

  1. Find Your Passion: What aspect of our drinks or lifestyles topics excites you? Craft beer, spirits, or maybe a mix of tech and drinks? Figure out your niche.
  2. Be Yourself: You don't need a writing degree. Your authentic voice and love for the subject are what matter most. Be you and let your enthusiasm shine.
  3. Pitch Your Ideas: Email a summary of your topic to our editorial department at editorial (at) beerconnoisseur (dot) com and why you believe it will connect with The Beer Connoisseur's audience. Highlight key points and what makes your piece unique, or submit your entire story for review.
  4.  Get the Green Light: Once your pitch is approved, you can start writing your full article. We encourage creativity and diverse perspectives.
  5. Write Engaging Content: Decide your tone and writing style. Is your story's tone professional, authoritative, educational, declarative, conversational, informal? Learn about different writing styles before investing too much of your time. Aim for 1000 to 1,500 words. Use titles, subheadings, bullet points, and visuals to make it reader friendly.
  6. Original Work: Your work should be original and plagiarism-free. If information is taken from other works, then those works must be cited.
  7. Media (Photos, Videos & Graphics): For us to accept media with your written content, you must demonstrate that you either own the media, have permission to use it, or have properly licensed it for use.
  8. Submit Your Work: Email your final work to the editorial department typically in a Word Document or Google Doc. Our editors will review your article and may lightly edit it for grammar and then publish it live to our website. Our editors will then notify you and provide the URL of the blog. If heavier edits are needed, then our editors will send the piece back for additional writing.

That's it! That's how you can start writing for us and become either a guest blogger or guest writer on one of the leading editorial websites on the internet for drink enthusiasts.
