Submit Your Articles to Empowering CaregiversTM / www.care-givers.com
We welcome articles from contributing authors, caregivers and other professionals to help us build one of the largest independent collections of quality articles on caregiving related issues and articles or words of inspiration.
Experiences and stories, including success stories which offer hope, ideas and encouragement, are most important. If there is an emotional and spiritual slant as well, we welcome your articles. They can be book reviews, information on new treatments, insurance, finances, legal information, alternative healing methods, legislation and advocacy. Our goal is to provide our guests with as much supportive information as possible.
Articles written solely to promote your products or service are not encouraged. Articles should be first and foremost informative. We want information that will help educate or make a difference in the lives of caregivers, caring for a loved one. We can link to your commercial web site, but please avoid hyping products or services. The only exception to this rule are features about new books written by authors/publishers -- these, by their nature, are informative.
We welcome contributions from everyone with something original to offer, including articles by medical experts, knowledgeable or interested individuals, and disease/disorder web sites, caregiver stories or experiences, patient stories/experiences by individuals who wish to share their story and help others in the process. There is no limit to the number of articles you may submit. If you want to contribute articles on a regular basis (ie. bi-weekly or monthly) just let us know in advance so we know when to expect them. If you are interested in publishing a column for the site, we encourage you to contact us.
If you own or maintain a web site, we will reference your site at the bottom of each article, including a link to your site and a brief description or bio about you or your site (don't forget to send us the URL and brief description you'd like us to use with your submission). Since we can't pay you (believe us, we would if we could!), so the next best thingwe can do in exchange is to direct visitors your way and help you enhance your online presence or promote your book, project, or service.

Authors give their implicit permission to Empowering Caregivers TM / www.care-givers.com to use and post their work when they submit articles or stories.

Length Of Submissions:
Caregiving related articles should range from a minimum of 450 words to approximately 1500 words. Longer articles will be accepted provided they are really appropriate for caregivers. We have found that when the articles are too long, the viewer, doesn't always finish reading the article. Inspiration has no limit since submissions may fall under poetry and other banners.
