How We Treat Articles
For an example of how we present articles,
Content and Style
Most of our writing comes from freelancers
and reprints from other publications. We welcome queries from
writers and are particularly interested in profiles of people,
topical pieces that explore an issue of concern to our readers and
success stories that would inspire others.
We prefer a
friendly style, but not one that is lackadaisical or cutesy. We seek
vigorous writing. Use anecdotes, examples, samples, and quotes to
strengthen the message of the article. Insert subheads and pull
quotes that help the reader to locate particular sections and pull
them into the article.
Length of Articles
We pride ourselves on succinct articles that communicate clearly and
quickly. Articles in Be Your Best!ô rarely exceed 800 words.
We ask that articles be sent as part of an
email message and not as an attachment.
Text should be
left-justified with ragged right margins. Please do not use spaces
in place of tabs and use only one space following punctuation
between sentences. Indicate italicized type by using all caps in the
word or phrase.
Illustrations and Photographs
Suggested illustrations or photos that could
be run with your story are greatly appreciated.
Rights and Conditions
Writers published by SuccessNet are free to sell or publish their work elsewhere. If
the piece was originally published by us, we ask that SuccessNet be credited as having been first. Example: "Copyright 20XX
[author]. This article first appeared in the [issue] issue of

We like to include a brief authorís bio and
contact information at the end of each article. Itís our intention
to provide promotional value to our authors as well as informational
value to our readers. Your photo in gif or jpeg format is
appreciated. Please include what you would like added.
