Thank you for your interest in becoming a Tall Guides Magazine contributor
Tall Guides Magazine hosts a global conversation about fashion, lifestyle, work and wellbeing with an international community of like-heighted women. We also host and co-host global gatherings, where tall women come together in a social setting for thoughtful conversation, genuine connection and new friendships.
Our goal is to help elevate and amplify the voices of tall women and since launching in late 2016, we have attracted a growing team of talented bloggers, writers, artists, coaches and experts from around the globe – all of whom have built relevant and meaningful relationships with an audience who think, feel and often look, just like they do.
As a contributor for us, you will inspire our global audience of women to lead happy, healthy and authentic lives on a platform that promotes women’s stories, voices and experiences.
Meet The Team who are on a mission to shape the future for tall women.
You don’t need to be a tall woman to write for our magazine but your content must resonate with our audience.
What We’re Looking For
Are you write for us?! We’re looking for contributors to share their knowledge, expertise and inspiring stories in the form of how-to guides, top tips posts, features, interviews and reviews that would be of interest to our target readership.
We accept written, photographic and video submissions but we always expect the same high editorial standards. Please note: plagiarism isn’t for us and we choose not to publish advertorials or glorified press releases.
Our aim is to be informative, honest and authentic and we would like our content to reflect this in it’s tone. We love content with a positive vibe that breathes life and personality into being tall.
Our content represents a diversity of viewpoints and we support body-positivity and women being their best selves.
Our tone is friendly, upbeat, encouraging, optimistic, open-minded, and professional. We are friends giving advice and in the know, but we’re not know-it-alls. Stories are written with a positive spin and we approach topics as fans, not critics.
Clarity and simplicity are preferred but this does not mean we accept a casual approach to research. If you like something, be detailed. If you don’t, be fair and balanced. Your writing should be accessible but feel free to go into depth – there’s no need to dumb it down. However, if it is something technical please remember to explain as you go.
Please expect some edits. This doesn’t mean that your article isn’t already great but we may need to tailor your work for our audience or to fit our layout, particularly if your submission is on the lengthy side. We also use UK spellings, so Americans; please don’t be alarmed if some of your words change. On the subject of spelling, we ask you to double check the spelling of names when it comes to the people you quote or write about. We will run checks before publication but we rely on our the accuracy of our contributors too.
