Submitted articles about books, products, “programs”, schools, and lessons are oftentimes not accepted due to a conflict of interest. Especially when said reviews or endorsements are made by the product’s creator and/or affiliates. While exceptions do exist, If you want to promote your own products then consider purchasing an advertisement.
Who can submit an article
We take a stance: quality over quantity. Please do not feel like you are doing us a favor by submitting an article. Likewise, if your sole intention of writing an article is to flood your website or product with our readers then refrain from contacting us.
One important factor is that you need to know exactly what you are talking about and be certain that you can write well. You should be a traveling connoisseur, in the process of learning French (and talking about difficulties), or a master of the French language.
In order to maintain a high quality for our articles, every article will be reviewed before being published. NOT all submissions or applicants can be accepted.
Some sites let any submitted article make it through, but we are looking for a polished product and we won’t mind sending you edits to make sure both parties are represented fairly. Only original and unpublished articles will be accepted. Articles should be free of most typos. It may be in English or in French, somewhere between 700 – 1,500 words.
FrenchCrazy is dedicated to sharing high quality articles with our readership, and we reserve the right to decline or remove any article that we consider does not reach the standards we have set without stating explicit reasons.
