How to Share Your Story

with Global Heroes

Welcome to the Global Heroes community! We are delighted you have decided to share your story with us. 

Submit your story to an editor and become a Global Heroes contributor.

 

Contributor Stories are articles that are selected and published by Global Heroes. Contributor Stories will go through a submissions process, and it can take weeks for us to review your story. Time-sensitive stories will be processed faster.

Right now, we don’t have the capacity to edit every submission we receive, so if we can’t edit your submission, it will be automatically posted as a Global Heroes Thought. You’ll get an email if this happens.

If your story is selected, it will be copy-edited for clarity, and according to our editorial guidelines.

We currently do not offer compensation for general submissions. However, we do occasionally have paid opportunities for Global Heroes contributors.

It can sometimes take up to several months for submissions to be published on our site, so we appreciate your patience! We are continually working to make our publishing process faster, and you’ll get an email when your story is up. You’ll also get an email if we end up sharing your story on one of our social media pages!

If you’re submitting your story for the first time, first, check out our editorial guidelines below. 

Guidelines for Contributing Writers

Submissions should be around 400-600 words. At a minimum, please ensure your story is at least 300 words. Submissions up to 1,000 words will be edited (and cut for brevity if necessary); anything longer than that will be sent back to you for a revision.

If you are submitting a video post, please provide us with text to create a short intro to the video that is up to 300 words. Be sure your video is under 5 minutes! Please include all credits for images and videos.
