PR for People Editorial Guidelines

Share Your News with the World

We invite people to share their news on our web portal.  We have different categories for our contributing writers. Some writers are paid for their work.  Below are the categories for our contributing writers.

Professional Journalists. Professional journalists and freelance writers are paid for their articles. These articles are deemed as express works for hire. We assign a news story to reporters and ask them to deliver an article on deadline that is restricted by word count. The pay scale varies according to the length of the assignment and its complexity.  How do you know if you qualify as a professional journalist? You have an established track record of media clippings. As a journalist or professional freelance writer, you are listed and have a pitching profile on Cison and PR Newswire. You are a member of the (SPJ) Society of Professional Journalists or the (ASJA) American Society of Journalists and Authors.

PR for People Subscribers. Sharing your news with the world is what we do. As a subscriber to the PR for People Basic Package, you are entitled to self-publish your original content on our news portal. There are no additional fees. Submit articles and posts that demonstrate your expertise, experience, and topics of interest.  Our editorial team will review your articles and edit them for clarity, economy of language and correct usage. Our aim is to ensure that the work written by our subscribers is polished and professional. Our editors will select those articles that can be used in our digital magazine or aggregated in our news briefs. This will increase your likelihood of getting media placement and recognition for your work beyond our news portal.

Writers-at-large. Anyone can pay as you go and contribute a sponsored article to our news portal by paying a small non-refundable fee of $55 per article.  Submit sponsored articles that demonstrate your expertise, experience, and topics of interest. We will review your articles and edit them for clarity, economy of language and correct usage. Writers-at-large will get a byline for their articles, but do not get a press kit on the PR for People website without subscribing to our PR for People Basic Package. If your work is exceptional, our editors will select those articles that can be pitched as story ideas to the press.  This will increase your likelihood of getting media placement beyond our news portal.

Sponsored Articles

Sponsored articles are just like regular news articles. Instead of going through gatekeepers who choose whether or not to publish your articles, we publish your articles and news stories for a nominal sum. We edit sponsored articles to ensure they are professionally polished. Our editors will select sponsored articles that can be used in our digital magazine or aggregated in our news briefs. This will increase your likelihood of getting media placement and recognition for your work beyond our news portal.

Although sponsored content is known as a "pay to play,: readers are devoting as much time to sponsored content as they do to traditional news stories. In many instances, readers cannot tell the difference between sponsored articles and traditional news articles that have been written by journalists. Since your sponsored articles sit side-by-side with stories written by our journalists, there is a remarkably high level of credibility given to high quality content regardless of how it originated.

You don’t have to be a subscriber to contribute articles to our news portal. Anyone can contribute a sponsored article to our news portal by paying a small non-refundable, one-time submission fee of $55.00 per article.  Submit sponsored articles that demonstrate your expertise, experience, and topics of interest. We will review your article and edit it for clarity, economy of language and correct usage. The content of your article must adhere to our Editorial and Privacy policy.
