Write For Us

Due to reader demand, here at Hot For Writing we’re now looking for contributors to write articles for us. Whether you’re a keen blogger looking to expand your portfolio or a first-timer with a great idea for a story, we would love to hear from you.

What We’re Looking For

At Hot For Writing we cover a broad range of subjects, from advertising and marketing to fashion, feminism and health. We look to publish stories that cover current news or trends, that fit in with the themes of Hot For Writing and that show the passions and opinions of a writer.

The best way to know about what interests Hot For Writing and it’s readers is to take a look at the Categories list at the bottom of our homepage - this shows current and archive articles organised in themed groupings.

With a few exceptions, our articles are features that run at about 500 – 800 words. They feature clear and careful reporting (usually with a link to a current or recent news article or source), the opinions of the writer on the topic and are interesting and accessible in their tone, provoking comment and debate amongst readers.
