At CatholicTherapists.com we welcome your article submissions for our blog. Publishing articles is a great way for prospective clients to get to know you and for you to write about your areas of expertise. Any articles that you submit, and that are accepted for publication, will appear on our blog and will also be attached to your profile. When someone visits your profile, they will be able to view your articles posted on our site in the “About” section of your profile.
Below are the guidelines we ask you to follow in writing your articles.
Know Your Audience:
Our audience at Catholictherapists.com is made up mostly of individuals looking for therapists and for information that will help them with their emotional, spiritual and relational problems.
Articles should be relevant to our readers and give them information and/or inspiration to help with their psychological well-being. Although our member therapists are also part of our audience, articles should be more “user friendly” and accessible to the average person. In other words, APA format and formal psychological language is best avoided.
Articles submitted should be at least 300 and no more than 1000 words and should be “print ready”. We cannot provide editing services, other than very minor grammatical corrections. If, in our opinion, an article is in need of more revision than we can provide, the article will not be published and you will be notified.
Links and Images:
If your article contains links to other websites, please be sure to verify that all links are correct and working properly. You do not have to provide a graphic image. We will select one for you. If, however, you would like to include a graphic image, please provide proof that your image is either royalty free or that you have purchased the license to use said image. If there is any doubt, we will select an image to go with your article.
Please submit only original and not previously published content, either on the web or in print. If you would like to post the same article on your website, we recommend that you post a summary of your article, using a different title, with a link back to the original article published on Catholictherapists.com. This is in order to help your article get better search engine optimization both on Catholictherapists.com as well as on your own website. Articles duplicated on more than one website are actually penalized in search engines.
Please avoid excessive political commentary and opinion. Articles that include discussion of a political nature should be relevant to mental health issues and not simply opinion pieces. For instance, commenting on an abortion law should relate to how people are affected by abortion and/or offer hope for healing.
Catholictherapists.com reserves the right to publish or not publish at its sole discretion and without explanation. Submission of an article does not guarantee its publication.
By submitting an article for publication, you are indicating your understanding of and agreement to these terms and guidelines.
If your post meets the above guidelines, here’s how to submit it for publication:
You must be an active member for a year in order to submit an article for publication.
Please email the article in MS Word format to us: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that the article will not appear on the blog until it is reviewed and accepted for publication.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
