Write for us

Mealtime is looking for creative writers who can produce high-quality content; professional writers, as well as passionate wordsmiths with experience in food juice, food policy, nutrition, health and diet, etc., are encouraged to apply.

Who can submit an Article

You can (unless you are a spammer) Our authors range from experienced writers to first-timers, and as our process includes edition oversight, we can be a great place to publish your first piece. You need an idea, something you want to share, and the ability to create an outline to show us that your idea will likely interest our readers. From then on, we can give you any help you need as you write and revise your articles. Experienced writers all started somewhere, we would be honoured to start your writing career with us.

Guest Post Guidelines

• We will only publish articles submitted by writers who are willing to post consistently.
• We reserve the right to edit, re-write or reject posts (title, inclusive). We’ll make minor edits without informing you first and send a postback if we think your topic needs more work.
• Basics first, your articles should not have grammatical or language error
• Your article should be informative, interactive, and engaging. Every post on our blog aims to give valuable information to our users, helping them with their diet.

• Your article should be 1000-1200 words
• Content must be unique, fresh, and thought-provoking. Since we write to the same audience, we hate to repeat ourselves.
• Point of emphasis, we would not accept culled articles or articles you’ve submitted elsewhere; all articles must be written for mealtime.
