If you'd like to write an article for us, to help promote your blog, website, service, or books, or anything else you want to draw attention to, please submit your work!. We pay $0.015 AUD per word. At the moment we can only pay via PayPal. If you don't have PayPal we cannot pay you.

All posts for this website must be inspiring and/or motivating, and encourage discussion by offering advice or arguing an opinion. We are after articles with rich and informative content. We will not just post your book blurb, cover, and purchase links. One, because you are more likely to attract attention to your work if you have something interesting to say. And two, because we would like this website to offer useful and interesting information for our readers, not blatant advertisements. We will not take reprints younger than 12 months.

We will tweet and Facebook your posts several times during the week to get it as much exposure as possible. Highest views on a single post = 1.5k+ within 24 hours. Average page views per week hit around 10k. If you want to reach that 1.5k+ views mark in 24 hours it means you need to provide interesting content and make an effort in sharing the post on various platforms as much as we do. This is a collaborative effort.

Your article will also be added to the monthly Vine Leaves newsletter, which currently has 1250+ subscribers.

Please submit the following:
  • A five-sentence pitch which summarizes your article and what readers will take away from it.
  • The article in a Word Document. Word count: min 700 - max 1000. If you write more than 1000 words, you will not get paid more.
  • A title (you'd be surprised how many people forget!)
  • A call to action at the end (A question related to your post to ask readers, which will make it easier for them to leave a comment.)
  • A head shot (JPEG please, do NOT embed it into your Word Doc, we need it as a separate attachment).
  • A 3rd person bio 50-100 words including all your web links.
  • Your PayPal email for payment should your article be accepted.
Provided all the above has been submitted, we will be in touch asap to let you know whether the article has been accepted. You will be paid within one week of your article going live.
