Work With Us

If you are passionate about writing and have a knack for all things fitness and health, YEG Fitness is excited to announce that we are now accepting article submissions from talented bloggers like you! As a platform dedicated to showcasing local stories of Edmonton area businesses, we love adding a local spin to news stories and activities, while keeping our readers informed about the latest fitness-related stories and events.

Before you dive in and start crafting your masterpiece, please take a moment to review our writer’s guidelines outlined below. While we welcome new writers, we do have a preference for individuals with previous journalism or writing experience. Thank you for your interest, and we are looking forward to collaborating with you!

Writer’s Guidelines:

1️⃣ Queries: When pitching your ideas to us, please provide a summary that describes your article idea, along with an approximate length and the date by which you can finish it.

2️⃣ Submissions: We prefer receiving submissions as Word attachments. Along with your article, please include your name, a photo, and a concise one- to two-sentence bio. Please note that submissions to our website are on a donation basis, meaning that your byline and bio will serve as your compensation. Rest assured that all articles will be edited for length, grammar, content, style, and tone, so be sure to double-check your spelling and grammar before submitting.

3️⃣ Familiarize Yourself with YEG Fitness: Before sending us your article query, we highly recommend exploring several issues of YEG Fitness to get a feel for our content and style. You can find back issues in the Archives section on our website.

4️⃣ Images: If you have images that you would like to include with your article, please ensure that you are authorized to use them and share them with us. We require at least one landscape image with a ratio of 1200×800 px for the post.

5️⃣ Image Ownership: We value intellectual property rights and strive to maintain a respectful online environment. If you notice that an image you own has been posted on our website in error, please reach out to us, and we will promptly remove it.

Final Notes:

1️⃣ Response Time: We receive numerous inquiries, so please be patient with us. While we do our best to respond to all submissions, it may take 4-6 weeks for us to review your idea or submission. If you haven’t heard back from us after this period, kindly assume that we won’t be able to use your work on this occasion.

2️⃣ Content Restrictions: To maintain the integrity of our platform, we do not link sponsored posts to gaming, steroid/performance-enhancing drug, or adult-themed sites. Additionally, we thoroughly check all content for accuracy and ensure that it features scientifically sound information. However, please note that the sole responsibility for the content, including any errors or omissions, lies with the author of the piece.
