|Contribute Articles to Moods|
If you wish to contribute an article(s) to be considered for publication on Moods’ website or in our printed publication, please follow the specifications noted below.
It is important to recognize that Moods magazine is directed at consumers and therefore should include easy-to-read language – layperson terms.
All articles must provide factual information beneficial to our readership regarding some aspect about mood disorders, addictions, eating disorders, anxiety, PTSD or OCD, etc. Articles written to promote a service or product will not be accepted for publishing within our content pages, as such articles fall under the category of an “Advertorial” or “Paid advertisement.”
Articles published in the printed version of Moods magazine or on Moods’ website may not be published in other sources during the period in which an issue is on the newsstands. We ask that reprints contain a credit line for Moods magazine. Moods would also appreciate a copy of any reprints or a link to online versions being published.
1) Personal stories in print: we require full disclosure (the person’s full name) as well as a few photos to accompany articles published in print. We require such as part of our efforts to eliminate the stigma attached to mental health.
2) Personal stories on Moods’ website: For those submitting a personal story and wish to remain anonymous, we will consider publishing stories on our website without full disclosure or photos.
3) Informational/factual articles: should include a 60-word bio about the author, including training, education and/or other relevant information to support the person’s expertise in the field – the bio will follow the article. A 1.5” x 1.5” digital colour photo of the author (head shot only) may also be included – one per article even if there are multiple authors.
We look forward to reviewing your submission!
