If you have material previously published in any other publication, please ensure that you have the necessary permission.
We accept articles on almost any topic worth publishing based on the value of their content for the coaching industry. These topics may be directly related to coaching (e.g., coaching models and frameworks) or indirectly related to coaching (e.g. marketing tips for a coaching practice).

A guide to article length
The preferred writing style is informal (i.e. not academic). Articles may include references to source material. Should you want to submit an academic article, you are most welcome to do so. These may have a more formal writing style and must include reference to sources.
Because the publication is mostly in an informal magazine-style, the articles are interspersed with images reflecting one or more themes in your article. Images are from various sources, including the internet (licenced for ‘free to share and use commercially’), from stock libraries or from the publisher’s own image library.
Should you prefer your own images with an article, please ensure that they are not copyrighted; that they may be used for commercial purposes and that the resolution is good enough for online publication. Note that the publisher reserves the right not to use any supplied images.
We do not pay for articles, and publication does not infer in any way that the author will receive a fee or any other form of compensation for the use of article in any way whatsoever;
Authors may, however, submit an advert for publication, free of charge, if the article is published in the magazine; Adverts may be for anything about coaching or strongly related to coaching. We reserve the right to reject adverts not suitable for our target market.
Authors may select any size and format from the list available on the ADVERTISE page. Select the size and format that will suite your content the best.
