Submit An Article
Return Of Kings is looking for original articles between 600-1,300 words to complement its in-house writers.
1. Understand the type of writing we publish. Browse through our recent posts and also our about page to get a feeling for our general viewpoint.
2. Avoid submitting an article that is too similar to one we already published. Use the search engine on the right sidebar towards the bottom to check what has already been written on your topic.
3. You grant us a perpetual license to your submission while you retain the original copyright. We may also distribute your article in email newsletters, social media, or other compilations (see submission agreement below).
Can I later publish my submission on other sites?
Yes, as long as you link back to the original that is published here. This is so Google doesn’t think we’re stealing content from other sources.
Can I submit an article that has been published elsewhere?
No, we only accept original writing.
Can I use this article as a way to promote my other work?
Yes. The bottom of every article has a biographical field where you can link to your blog, Twitter, Facebook, etc. You are also allowed up to two contextual links within the article to relevant articles and blog posts on sites you own (but not sales, product, or squeeze pages).
Can I submit an idea to you first?
We accept either final draft submissions or the first paragraph of an article you intend to write. We don’t accept ideas.
Do I get paid for my submission?
No, only our weekly columnists receive compensation for their writing.
Can I become a weekly columnist writer?
We will consider you for a columnist position if we publish four of your articles that were of consistent quality. This job is only for those who can write at least one new article a week. Email the editor after four of your submissions have been published.
Can I write under an anonymous name?
Yes you can write under a pen name, but you must include both a first and last name. We no longer accept submissions from nicknames like BigButt69 or GrimReaper4Ever. Your pen name must sound normal.
