Write for us!

We love hosting content from women across Scotland, but we also appreciate that many women can’t offer their words, or their time, for free.

So we’re delighted to be re-opening our blog commissioning fund, initially supported by ROSA, to offer women a small fee for blog pieces. We’re particularly going to be interested in pieces which represent voices not often heard on our blog, for example women of colour, LGBT women, disabled women, and women from rural communities.

We only have a limited pot of money available for this, and of course we will still very much welcome unpaid submissions to our blog as well!

What can you write

How to apply

If you want to be considered for a paid piece, please send an email to with a short pitch saying what you want to write. This should include:

Please also include an example of your previous writing (published or unpublished).

You can also send us completed blog posts, but please note that we can’t guarantee we will accept them or offer a fee.

We will also occasionally commission blogs if there is a particular subject we want to be covered, or voices which are missing from the discussion.


We are offering a fee of £75 per blog piece, which will be offered either as a monetary payment after invoice, or as a voucher of your choice (we can discuss this with you at the time). Please get in contact in with us if you wish to discuss the amount, or a different payment structure.
