|Post subject:||Writing for SharmWomen|
Interested in writing for SharmWomen? SharmWomen is a website for women living in Sharm El Sheikh. If you're someone who has already made the move here you will almost certainly have information of use to others - why not share it? You don't need to be a great writer (we can tidy things up), all you need is the willingness to help others by sharing your experiences.
Beyond the warm feeling you'll get from helping others, what else is in it for you? Here are some possibilities:
- Make new friends or contacts. Many people visit SharmWomen every day and anything you write will be available to them all as soon as it's published. If you want others to get in touch with you just ask us to include your contact details in your article.
- Articles can be published not only at the SharmWomen website but also in our newsletter which will go out to about hundreds of subscribers every month.
- There's a certain satisfaction to be gained from preventing others from making the same mistakes you made when you moved to Sharm el Sheikh. Equally, have you found a great tip to help others through the endless maze of paperwork you were required to complete? Pass it on!
- Impress people at dinner parties by telling them you write for a known website. OK, you might not impress them, but you can tell them anyway
If the above sounds good, how do you get started? Simple - think about what you've learnt from your own experiences. It might be something applicable to all Sharmers or maybe just something of use to those heading to the Sinai. Or write something about a funny experience you had. It really doesn't matter, if it's something you think might be of intererest for someone else and you're able to write at least 500 words about it then we're interested in publishing it at SharmWomen.
Don't think that just because no one else has written about a certain topic before, or you don't see an appropriate section for it already here, that we're not interested in what you want to write about. Remember, if it's something you would have found useful to know, someone else will too.
If you're not comfortable sending us a complete article straight away because you don't think your writing is good enough why not send in a short sample first? It can be anything - something you've written in the past perhaps on another subject or just a couple of paragraphs you've put together to see how it looks. Don't worry too much about making it perfect, although we do appreciate it if you can run it through a spell checker first!
If you'd like to contribute an article, or even start writing regularly for SharmWomen, please contact Christiane on firstname.lastname@example.org
We'll be delighted to hear from you, we promise!
The SharmWomen team
