Want to write for Heights? We now accept guest posts, so now is your chance.

The kind of posts we accept

We are focused on braincare. So we accept topics:

  • Related to one of the ten pillars of braincare

  • Related to mental health and well-being 

  • Focused on nutrition (from a science-backed angle, and especially pertaining to the brain)

  • Focused on gut health

Examples of topics we would accept:

  • The best nutrients for your brain 

  • Good gut foods 

  • Memory loss: causes and how to improve it  

  • Do vegans need supplements?

Feel free to also ask us for topics as we always have a backlog of topics we would love to get live on our blog.

Guidelines

Please keep in mind the following guidelines when writing for us:

  1. All claims should be science-backed and referenced; see the following article for how to reference.

  2. All text should be grammatically correct (we advise using Grammarly).

  3. Articles should be scannable: use of headings, lists, quotes, images, etc.

  4. Optimise writing and consider SEO.

  5. Please use UK English.

  6. We love an oxford comma.

  7. In line with our tone of voice. We mix science with empathy to make it approachable. We avoid generalisations, over the top claims, or highly exaggerated language. We love a good play on words (but don’t overdo it), and never shy away from being direct.  

We will do a final edit before publishing, but the basics above should be in place.

Correct formatting

Our articles always follow the following formatting:

  • Title: Max 80 characters (H1)

  • Summary: Max 120 characters

  • Main content: 500 - 2,000 words

  • Who you are

  • The main keywords

  • Optional: other ideas you have

  • Promote the article to our 50,000+ email list

  • Promote the article to our social following (40,000+)
