Content:

The Modern Alice specializes in delivering content that is educational, inspiring, and thought provoking. We strive to give women a place to feel inspired and a voice to push them when the noise of doubt begins to creep. The content we seek is the type of content you look for when you need to rise above the crowd – whether it deals with career, fashion, relationships, or philosophy. The Modern Alice provides you with more of what you really want and need to succeed and less of what you don’t. Time is precious and every article at #TMA is an investment. If you have a passion for helping women reach their goals and giving back, then continue reading. Let’s inspire the women who are bored at their day jobs or mildly browsing at home to pursue their true passions and take that first step to #conqueringWonderland.

Before You Submit:

Before submitting, take a moment to see if your article can answer the following questions:

1) Is the topic at hand relevant to women ages 25-35?

2) Does the article represent the core principles of the Modern Alice and who she is? (See our ABOUT and WHO page)

3) Are there quotable content we can highlight?

4) Are there helpful visual aid for readers who like to skim?

5) Does the topic offer a unique perspective with supporting evidences that are credible? If so, can they be cited by experts? (We like to show to our readers that each article has been researched with care)

6) How shareable is this content? (Although we focus on items of relevance, we want to reach as many women as we can that will benefit from your article)

If you are able to answer these questions, then let’s get started and get you on your way to becoming a Modern Alice contributor.
