Contributing authors are also featured on the Kidsit about page along with a bio and profile photo.

Article submission rules

Writing style guide

We want all our articles to feel like part of a family. The following guide will help you match our style:

Please write in English

Australian, British, and American English are all acceptable, just don't mix them up!

Use simple language.

Our audience consists of teenagers, parents, caregivers, business owners, males and females. Keep your writing simple to remain inclusive. Aim to be easily understood by 13 - 14 year olds.

Simple language is also easier to translate into other languages.

Use short paragraphs

Most traffic to Kidsit is from mobile devices so short paragraphs are best for small screens. No-one likes reading walls of text!

Use subheadings to create a strong outline

Headings help people understand the structure of your article.

Bold important passages

People don't read, they scan. Bold text helps catch the eye as you scroll.

Use a conversational writing style

Imagine you're talking to someone one-on-one and write a conversation. This direct style can feel personal and engaging.

Feel free to suggest illustration ideas

Sometimes a picture can say more than words ever can. We find simple images work best.

And lastly, read our current articles to get a feel for our website tone and voice and aim for a similar style.

Helpful writing tools we recommend

The article submission process

If you haven’t started writing yet, then we suggest creating a rough outline first.

Send us your outline and we'll let you know if you're on the right track. You don’t want to invest energy on something we're not interested in, or waste time writing on the same topic as someone else!

We may offer suggestions to improve your article structure or refine the topic at this stage.

When your outline is good then it's time to start writing.

Make sure you follow our style guide and use our recommended tools for the best result.

When your article is finished, or if you already have a completed article to share, then send it to us for review.

When we accept an article, there are several final steps before we can publish:

After your article is published on Kidsit we may make periodic updates to keep it relevant, and we may translate it into other languages to increase your audience.
