So you want to be a contributor? Well, you've come to the right place!

First things first, however.
Rules aren’t very fun, but sometimes they’re necessary. We’ve kept them short and sweet so you can get uploading as quickly as possible.

1. Have fun and promote yourself as a thought-leader, not a used-car salesman. This is not a place for reviews or basic listicles. This is for you to write long-form, thoughtful posts. 
2. By all means, be excited to contribute to TNW. We're sure happy you're here! But be sure to clearly explain that you are a contributor, as opposed to writer/editor/staff/etc, when referencing your role with TNW.
3. As such, you may not accept information, invites, products, etc on behalf of TNW. 
4. If your posts do well, it could be moved to the home page and shared on our social media.
5. Say something new. Republishing articles onto TNW is a big no-no.
6. But if you wanna republish from TNW, you may… after five days and with the canonical.
7. Please don’t be spammy, rude, or obnoxious.
8. All links are automatically no-follow. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
9. We only pay for guest posts in high-fives unless otherwise stated.
10. You shouldn’t benefit financially from third-parties in exchange for posting about them. 
11. TNW may translate, amend, cut, or alter your post as deemed appropriate. It happens.
12. TNW isn’t liable for any potential legal liability that may stem from your articles.
13. TNW reserves the right to remove articles or revoke contributor status.

ATTENTION: We receive hundreds of applications a week, but can only accept a certain number. Please note that applying to become a contributor does not guarantee you will be accepted.
