Welcome! We’re happy you’re interested in writing for The Yorkie Times. We are open to new contributors but have a few requirements to be accepted.
What We Publish:
The Yorkie Times covers all things Yorkshire Terrier and Yorkie Crossbreeds related. We publish original articles on any topic that might be of interest to please who are thinking of getting a Yorkie, have one (or many), have had one in the past, or just think they are adorable. For example, articles can be small dog general with a highlight on Yorkies, but large dog issues, don’t apply.
What we are looking for:
We’re currently looking for long-form how-to articles, such as:
- Nail cutting
- Do it yourself grooming
- Indoor exercise
These are a small sample as the current medical emergency requires many to stay home.
How to apply:
We are open to these and other forms of articles. You can submit your ideas to contact@TheYorkieTimes.com.
It is helpful if your ideas include an estimated word count. Tell us about the topic and why you think your story would interest our readers. Include a short bio of yourself. You will be able to include 1 link back to your website in your bio, so please include the link as well as that is subject to approval.
What to expect:
If we accept it, please don’t be surprised or offended when the article is edited or reformatted to fit the website layout and digital requirements. We would never change the heart of your article – we tweak grammar, headlines, etc.
Your articles will be shared with our 30k plus audience over our platforms on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and, more recently, YouTube.
We don’t publish infographics or syndicated content.
Who We Are Looking For:
We are happy to accept articles about your Yorkie and your family experience. If you are writing about training, grooming, or health, please indicate in your bio or the article itself where your experience and knowledge comes from. Site sources where appropriate.
The tone of our site is friendly, casual, and fun.
If you think this would be a great fit for you, apply at contact@TheYorkieTimes.com and we’ll get back to you in 7 to 10 days.
Thank you 🙂
