How to submit a guest post


VAntage Point would like to hear from you about the issues Veterans face.

Whether you’re a Vietnam or Gulf War Veteran, a VA employee, a family member or just have information or a story to share with Veterans, consider submitting an original written piece suitable for our guest post column.

Before submitting your post for consideration, please note the following guidelines:

•     Posts will be edited for style and clarity
•     Submission of your guest post does not guarantee publication
•     Posts should be at least 500 but not longer than 2,000 words in length, and include a title
•     Clearly mark any passages that should be hyperlinked and include the links
•     Send your submission in Microsoft Word or .txt format
•     Include a horizontally-oriented photo at least 730 x 370 pixels to use as a Featured Image along with a bio picture and any other graphics or photos you’d like included in the post
•     Add a short, 2-3 sentence bio at the bottom

These guidelines are intended to streamline our guest posting process. If your post is accepted, it can take up to 2 months to be published due to editing and scheduling. We try to post 2-3 guest posts per week.

To submit your guest post for review, or if you have any questions, email newmedia@va.gov with “Guest Post Submission” in the subject line.

Please include:

•     Name
•     Contact information
•     Veteran status or affiliation to Veterans, if any

Thanks, and we hope to hear from you soon!
