OUR PURPOSE is to promote diverse voices and perspectives not only through the people and stories we cover, but also through the voices we are highlighting and seeking out.
OUR TONE is friendly, upbeat, encouraging, optimistic, open-minded, and professional. We are friends giving advice and in the know, but we’re not know-it-alls. Stories are written with a positive spin; we approach topics as fans, not critics.
VOICE + TONE GUIDELINES

Your story should always provide a service to your reader.
Be clever in your writing but not salacious or snarky.
Use slang and abbreviations sparingly.
Keep headlines and main images clean and safe for work.
All submissions must be original content that you own the rights to and that hasn’t been previously published.
Please fact check your story and provide sources for all your info.
You may include original photography, but it isn’t required.
Images must be high-resolution and be at least 1456 pixels wide.
Submission of a post does not guarantee it will be published on TIMES NETWORK SOUTH AFRICA . Our team will reach out if we’d like to run your story!

Please submit your post only once. If your post has been accepted, we will respond within 7 working days.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is the word count per post?
We’re flexible on word count, but between 500-1200 words is a good place to start.
Do I send in a story idea or a full draft?
We ask that members submit a full draft for our editors to review in the Submissions section on the dashboard.
Will I hear back if my submission isn’t accepted?
Our editors are constantly reviewing submissions, so you should receive a notification within 7 days of completing a submission, of whether your story has been accepted or not.
Do I have to include photos?
Original photography isn’t required, but if you’re submitting a story that could be enhanced with personal photos (such as a product review, Interviews, before-and-after story, experiment, or DIY), it has a greater chance of being published if you include them.
Can I publish my content somewhere else after it has gone up on TIMES NETWORK SOUTH AFRICA?
We ask that writers don’t republish original content they write for TIMES NETWORK SOUTH AFRICA anywhere once it has been published on TIMES NETWORK SOUTH AFRICA. However, you are welcome to promote links to your content on dailyguardian.ca on your social accounts and/or personal blog.
