1. Headline of your article:

Try to keep headlines short and punchy

Make sure that the category you select is aligned with the topic of your article.


3. Content:

3.1 You can write only between 200 and 300 words (it takes normally 10-15min to write an article)
Short articles deliver better reader engagement. Your articles should be engaging, accurate, insightful. BUT don’t write anything polemical without solid arguments and proofs.
