How it works

  1. Initial contact: Interested in writing for Zencare? Let us know by filling out this form! The Zencare content team may also reach out to you directly regarding submissions and collaborations, too.

  2. Content outline and submission: The Zencare content team will send you an email with questions to answer (example). Please send your responses to each question in the Google Doc we will send you per the guidelines below, and by the agreed upon deadline.

  3. Publication and promotion: We will let you know when your content is published! Your article may be promoted via our newsletter and/or social media in the months following publication, and your quotes may be included in other articles on our blog or partner publications we write for.

Guidelines

  • Please answer each question in one to three paragraphs. We do not accept essays and longform content at this time, as Q&As are more digestible for readers, rank more highly in search results, and facilitate quoting you in other articles to keep growing your digital footprint!

  • Answer questions on google doc. For ease of editing and to communicate suggested changes with you, we will send you questions via a Google Doc (example). Please add your content on there (rather than via email, attached Word doc, or PDF).

  • Avoid jargon. Most readers will not have significant knowledge of therapy modalities (e.g. psychodynamic, humanistic, narrative therapy) or mental health conditions. Try to avoid terms that your non-therapist friends would not know, or if you do mention them, explain what they mean (e.g. “anorexia, an eating disorder that involves restriction of food intake”).

  • Write like you are speaking to a client or friend. Avoid academic sounding writing. (e.g. instead of “depressive episodes,” use “feeling depressed”). Content should be conversational, rather than professorial.
