Here at Typsy, we love working with guest writers. If you have experience in the hospitality industry and you would like to contribute your knowledge, please read these guidelines and then get in touch!
Content that helps hospitality workers improve their craft
Content that helps venues better train their staff
Content that helps venues and hospitality schools learn more about online education
We want Typsy to be a go-to resource for the hospitality industry. Somewhere people can go to learn, recharge, and be inspired. We want our writers to dive deep into topics and contribute something new to the conversation.
Our audience includes restaurateurs, bartenders, front of house staff, back of house staff, training managers, educators, and owners. We're looking for topics they will care about.
We are currently looking for article submissions on all areas of hospitality. Writers who can deliver thought leadership through their own research or experience are particularly appreciated.
We publish both listicles and feature articles. Please note we do not host sponsored content.
If this sounds like you, please check out our guidelines below and get in touch with Emily at email@example.com.
Here's what we like to publish:
Original and well-written content. We don't republish content that already exists on blogs, LinkedIn, or Medium.
Lists, interviews, and feature articles. Lists should be between 600 and 800 words. Features should be between 800 and 1200 words. If you believe you would make a good interview subject, please scroll down.
Blogs with compelling subheadings that break up content
Blogs that are informative and not trying to sell us anything
Blogs that suit our writing style (fun, helpful, authoritative)
Topics that we haven't already covered
We ask that you
Provide a headshot and short (max 50 words) bio
Provide links to your website and social media profiles so that we can encourage readers to connect with you
Provide attribution for any images included in the article
Include no more than two outbound links referring to your own company
Include hyperlinks that give credit to sources (such as surveys, statistics, etc.)
Share your article across your networks once it’s published – for example on social media or through an email newsletter
Tell us who you are, and what your connection is to the hospitality industry. Please also send through an unedited article writing sample of at least 200 words. Part of an existing draft is fine - we just need to get a sense of your writing style without anyone else having edited it. For example:
Dear [editor name],
My name is John Smith and I'm a gin expert who runs The London Gin Society. I have worked in the hospitality industry for over 15 years. I have really enjoyed reading your blog and believe I would be able to contribute some valuable new content [tell us who you are and what your qualifications are]
I would like to write about how bartenders should organize their bar to improve their efficiency during a busy night [share your idea and show us that you understand what would be relevant to our audience].
I have attached a 200-word article writing sample, and here is a previously published article of mine: www.johnsmith.com/writing [link to a writing sample or your website]
Thanks for your time and I hope to hear from you soon.
