Submission Guidelines

The Really Short Version:

SoulOfWit is a writers’ community.  A writers’ community is a place where people write for passion and improvement, read for entertainment & understanding, and discuss for useful interaction.

Note: Articles written for commercial purposes or for link-building would not fit into the above definition of ‘writers’ community’ and therefore would not be allowed on SoulOfWit.com.

Articles that you submit to SoulOfWit must be original material that is solely owned by you.

Formatting guidelines:

  • Do not repeat the title at the top of the article body.
  • Do not put your name or business name in the title of the article.
