You need a platform – we have that.
You want to reach a wider audience – we have that, too.
You have a story to tell – so tell it.
Lulu is throwing caution to the wind and inviting our authors to become Lulu bloggers. After all, who knows more about self-publishing than self-published authors? You get to share your knowledge with a broader audience while promoting your work. We get to show the world that Lulu authors are among the best writers on the web.
Send your story pitch to PR@lulu.com. Your pitch should include:
- An introduction: Who are you?
- Relevance: How does your proposal fit with our existing audience?
- Topics: What do you propose to write about?
- Value: What benefit will readers get from the article?
Your pitch should not be a bulleted list, nor should it be an epic love poem in long form. This is the one piece of your writing we are guaranteed to read, so keep it brief, to the point, and grammatically correct. For more information on writing an effective pitch, see: Pitch Perfect: Pitching a Guest Post.
Here are some ideas for articles, but don’t be limited by what you see here. Originality will be rewarded.
What do you know? What have you learned? What would you tell a new author? What should an author avoid? How do you feel when your words arrive in the mail as a book? What new technologies help you stay organized? How do you research your characters and locales? What do people say when they recognize themselves in your book? How many times do you write, rewrite and rewrite again? Got any funny stories? How do you effectively edit your own writing? How do you find trustworthy publishing services? Whose dreams are you making come true?
You can be assured that all pitches will be read and responded to by our team.
We look forward to hearing your ideas and working with you to expand your audience.
