  • The work must be original and include citations for any quotes
  • You must agree to not publish the full post on any other site. Linking to the FMP site, excerpts, and/or repurposing is fine
  • You must include sources if using research or core content of other writers You also need to include author byline after the title, links to your website, and graphics.
  • Formatting:  Post must be clear, simple, edited  and over 400 words. Submit as an RTF or WORD document. Avoid styling it because we will do that but you can use H2 and H3 for sub-heading tags.

Step 3  If you are accepted as a guest blogger, start writing by making a “story board” or “web” of important points. Write, make revisions, write, revise, write, share with a friend, discuss, revise, then have someone edit your last post with you.
