Live Well Editorial Guidelines
Editorial Guidelines for Advisory Board members and partners
Live Well is looking for articles from local experts in an opinion piece, Q&A or blog-style format that will serve as the main partner article for the week. About 300-500 words is a perfect length; long enough to provide some heft, short enough to be focused. This will go in the main slot at the top of the page for our partner content, next to our latest health feature story, along with some sort of main art (either from our archives or stock photos) and a picture of the article author/ expert.
The site will also contain tip sheets and other resources on the topic of the week, but it will really thrive on original content. (By original, I mean written for this purpose. You are also welcome to use it in any way you'd like, of course.) Can you or a person associated with your organization locally write about your topic of the week? It doesn't have to be completely local content, but including local stats or an upcoming event would be great. I think that will really help our readers connect with you and your local efforts and help us forge a community identity on Live Well.
