About Carma’s Cookery

Carma’s Cookery is a blog about unleashing your kitchen creativity. It is about supporting home cooks in creatively solving cooking issues, as well as creatively adding their own style and flair to meals and gatherings. In addition, it helps them do so with both flavor and health in mind.

The goal of this blog is to reach new and intermediate-level home cooks who are looking for ways to improve their cooking and find their own style in the kitchen.

Who Can Write for Us?

I’m open to all submissions as long as I feel they are in alignment with the mission of this blog and will be of value to its current and future readers.

I do not pay for bylined guest posts. I charge for ghostwritten posts. Contact me for the fee schedule.

Types of Content Accepted

  • Posts must be original and exclusive to Carma’s Cookery.
  • I do not publish press releases but am open to receiving them as a leaping off point for my own stories.
  • I only accept pitches, drafts will be ignored if not previously pitched.

Publishing Frequency

I aim to publish content at least twice a month, but will often publish more often if something comes up. Once accepted, a guest post will usually be scheduled for within two weeks.

Post Guidelines

Post Length: For SEO, posts must be at least 500 words long. I’ll accept articles up to 1500 words long.

Image Requirements: You need not provide an image, but it is helpful if you do. Make sure you have permission to use the image on my site and provide the credits.

Citing sources: Be sure to cite your sources!

Links in Content: You are welcome to include one link to your site in the body of the article, as well as in your by line. A link to relevant content on Carma’s Cookery should also be included, as this helps with SEO.

Other Advice: Use active voice. Passive voice makes me cringe when used too much. Infuse your article with your personality!

Submission Guidelines:

Accepted Formats: Word or text document attached to the email.

Point of Submission: Send your submission to editor[at]carmascookery[dot]com.

Subject Line: Include “Kitchen Creativity Unleashed” somewhere in your pitch email, or you run the risk of being ignored. Also, include “Dragon Cookies” in your subject line.

Include a Byline and Headshot: Every guest post comes with an “About the Author” section. Please include a short bio and a headshot image with your submission for this section. Headshots should be at least 150 x 150 pixels.

Carma’s Cookery reserves the right to edit headlines, body copy, and author bio for grammar and SEO considerations.

General Considerations

Don’t worry if it takes a couple of weeks to get back to you. Carma’s Cookery is a labor of love, but it is also a side project. It doesn’t get the first priority in my day.

I will respond to your email if you’ve followed the guidelines. If not, then I may ignore your emails and not respond.

At this point in time, I do not provide editorial commentary on rejected submissions.

Ready to Send Your Pitch?

Awesome! Send a concise pitch, with three possible article titles and a short 1-2 sentence description of each one to editor[at]carmascookery[dot]com.
