Step 1: Read Past Articles to Understand Our Content
Please write in either first person, as if you were telling your best friend about your experience. Alternatively, report on your experience in the third person. You can use either voice.
Step 2: Submit the Pitch
Submit a pitch or an idea of what your article will be about to Amy Piper. She will email you back with questions or a go-ahead for the article.
Step 3: Submit Content for Review
Send your completed article to the Editors: Amy Piper and Debbra Dunning Brouillette, for review.
- Submit only high-quality, original content that hasn’t been published previously and is error-free.
- Be sure your article has been spell-checked, proofread, and all proper names mentioned are accurate.
- The suggested word count range is from 500 to 2,000 words. Break up your text with plenty of subheads; they help with SEO. (Subheads using active language are best.)
Tip: Download the free version of Grammarly (a typing assistant that reviews spelling, grammar, punctuation, clarity, etc.) before you submit. If you have the paid version, feel free to use that.
- After it has been reviewed and edited (using Grammarly), the editors will return it to you with any needed changes.
Step 4: Upload the Article to the Website
Once it is ready, upload the content to FWTmagazine.com on WordPress.
Follow this step-by-step tutorial on how to post your content:

Note: FWTmagazine currently uses the Classic Editor, supported through 2024. When we switch to the Gutenberg Editor, we will update our tutorial link.
Step 6. Update Your Bio with Gravatar
Having a 50 word (max) bio and photo is mandatory – and it’s easy to set up using a Gravatar account.
Example: Look on the top right of the page to locate where you are signed in. You will see “Howdy, (your name).” Next, click on Edit Profile to make sure your bio appears. You can also add or update your Gravatar photo here. (See example below.)
Step 7: Choose Only Your Best Images
We’re after your best high-quality photos. Include up to 12 images that depict all areas covered in your story. Please give all photos a descriptive file name rather than a number, i.e., riding-camels-in-Jordan.jpg.
Tip: If you don’t have enough high-quality photos, ask hosts, PR reps, CVBs, and other businesses (hotels, restaurants, attractions, etc.) you mention within your article for professional images. Unfortunately, FWT Magazine does not accept Creative Commons photos, but you may use free resources such as Unsplash.com or Pexels.com.
