Rattle

While we’re always open to regular submissions of all forms of poetry and artwork, every issue of Rattle includes a special tribute dedicated to some social, vocational, or stylistic group.

Poetry: This issue will feature Immigrant Poets. Please explain how this applies to you and affects your poetry, if at all, in your contributor note. We no longer publish prose essays, but instead use these contributor notes as micro-essays at the back of each issue. The poems themselves don’t have to be about immigration—we want to celebrate and explore the range of work that immigrant poets are producing. If using Submittable, please be sure to select the Immigrant Poets category.

Artwork: We still need cover art for this issue. To submit, use the artwork category on Submittable. Rarely we publish internal black and white art that relates to the theme—though usually, we’d rather use the space for as much poetry as possible.

Deadline: October 15, 2017

Payment for print publication (from us to you in exchange for your work) is $100 and a complimentary one-year subscription to the magazine, including the issue in which your work appears. Contributors also may pre-order additional copies of their issue at our cost to produce. Payment for online-only work is $50.

This One Technique Brings Unbelievable Clarity to Your Business Writing (and How to Do It)

Wanting to improve your business writing? Award-winning, Hisham Wyne, shares ‘one technique brings unbelievable clarity’. Hisham is a brand consultant, content creator and an expert copywriter. This technique is sure to bring results. All the very best!

This One Technique Brings Unbelievable Clarity to Your Business Writing (and How to Do It)

“The most complicated skill is to be simple.”
― Dejan Stojanovic

Hisham Wyne One Technique Brings Unbelievable Clarity

Want to write better? Google it!

Courtesy the Internet, there’s no shortage of helpful resources out there – from boiling the perfect egg to improving your writing efficiency and achieving your writing goals.

But what is obscured in this deluge of information is one trick that every writer must know – regardless of whether you make a living as a freelance content writer, or are expected to help your firm sell better.

It’s the one trick that can disguise a multitude of writing sins and also improve traction. And here it is: clarity through simplicity.

Why simplicity matters

Whatever discipline you may be in (advertising, web design, copywriting), simplicity is one of the most important skills that you will need to learn and hone.

According to a study conducted by Google in 2012, it only takes a fraction of a second for visitors to judge whether a website is beautiful or not. Interestingly, the majority of respondents in the study rated simple websites as more beautiful than visually complex ones.

Why?

In simple terms, the human brain gives preference to things that are easy to digest and understand. This concept is known as cognitive fluency.

Take websites, for example. At this point, you have probably visited hundreds of websites. More than likely, you have a list of websites bookmarked for repeat visits. You’re comfortable with them, and come back over and over. But when you visit a new site that has heaps of information, you get lost. Things look unfamiliar. Your dwell times reduce. Your bounce rates go up. Simply put, you just don’t spend as much time reading the content.

Your brain craves the familiar because it is easier to process. And when in unfamiliar territory, you crave simplicity.

The science of simplicity

The human brain prefers less visually complex websites because these are less taxing. The important thing is that simplicity isn’t just important to visuals. It also applies to copy and content.

The human brain prefers less visually complex websites because these are less taxing. The important thing is that simplicity isn’t just important to visuals. It also applies to copy and content.

Good copywriting shares a few qualities with good design. One of those qualities is simplicity.

Why simplicity matters in writing

Learning and mastering simplicity is difficult. That is why it’s an easy temptation for writers – particularly unsure writers, or those writing in a non-native language – to use verbosity, jargon, and ambiguity as crutches.

Academic writing is a major culprit. University students write like their professors; cranking out sentences stretched to breaking with esoteric words and complicated construction – for no good reason. It’s almost like academics are afraid of being understood too easily.

You might get away with it in academia – I know I did. But the real world isn’t as forgiving. Writing with simplicity and clarity is key.

But don’t get me wrong: simple isn’t easy. Simple is hard. It entails discipline, attention, and critical thinking. Simple takes time. Remember that Blaise Pascal once started a correspondence by saying “Excuse the long letter, I didn’t have time to write a short one.”

Hisham Wyne One Technique Brings Unbelievable Clarity

Think back on the ads that have appealed greatly to you. What do you remember? Simplicity.

Seasoned copywriters spend years honing their skills so they can get the point across with elegant simplicity.

Simplicity is a copywriter’s best friend

Over the years, you may have accumulated a few habits that may work well for you if you are striving to be a fiction writer. Or a columnist, or perchance a food critic.

Business copywriting is different. And in order to be successful, you need to shed these habits. And avoid the words and constructs you most like. To paraphrase William Faulkner, you have to kill your darlings.

So here a few tips to start bringing simplicity to your copy:

Never make it about yourself

There might be a time and place to showcase that tremendous vocabulary you’ve spent years developing. Working on client copy is not it.

One of the key mistakes new writers make is trying to impress by piling on the words to show how adroit they are with language. That’s not going to work. Even if the client likes it, verbose copy doesn’t sell as well as simple sentences.

Don’t make it about yourself. Use your copy to help brands that have hired you sell better. Once audiences start responding to your copy, you’ll get hired again.

Your readers don’t care about emotional connections

 

Hisham Wyne One Technique Brings Unbelievable Clarity

There are essentially two types of people who will read corporate copy.

First, you have people who have inadvertently stumbled upon your work. It is highly likely they won’t bother reading – because your work just doesn’t apply to them.

Second, you have people who are looking for solutions to specific problems. And they’re hoping your client can help them with specific services. So your job is to tell audiences a) how your client can help, and b) why they’re a good choice. Quite simply, your goal as a copywriter is to help your clients make the sale.

Ditch the thesaurus

Again, don’t use words you don’t need to. Remember, your audience has a lot of things competing for attention. You need to get your message sinking in fast. As a copywriter, think about whether someone will understand what you’re saying if they only skim.

Apply the 10-second test: Will brand new readers get your point in 10 seconds? If not, it’s time to hit the drawing board again.

Think mobile

More and more content is now accessed online. As a copywriter, you need to constantly think about how your copy works on a small screen. Edit and rewrite. And then edit and rewrite some more – till your content doesn’t overwhelm small screens.

So what’s the bottom line?

It’s simple.

As a copywriter, your goal is to help clients hit their business objectives. And that means creating copy that their audiences respond to. Simpler copy can be read faster, and understood better by more people. And that means more eyeballs, which translates to better sales.

Write for these 10 Religious sites that pay

Lately there has been so much transpiring around the world regarding religious beliefs, here are 10 Religious sites that pay to publish your convictions and understandings. If you wish to share your ideas, but are not really a writer, please feel free to make use of our transcription services.

10 Religious sites that pay

10 Religious sites that pay

1. The Christian Century

At the Christian Century, we seek to articulate the public meaning of faith, bringing the resources of religious tradition to bear on such topics as poverty, human rights, economic justice, international relations, national priorities, and popular culture.

We are also interested in pieces that examine or critique the theology and ethos of individual religious communities. We welcome articles that find fresh meaning in old traditions and that adapt or apply religious traditions to new circumstances.

Authors should assume that readers are familiar with main themes in Christian history and theology, are accustomed to the historical-critical study of the Bible, and are already engaged in relating faith to social and political issues. Many of our readers are ministers or teachers of religion at the college level.

2. First Things

First Things is happy to accept unsolicited manuscripts. Writers should familiarize themselves with the magazine before sending their submission, and include with it a cover letter giving their thesis, an explanation of why it’s an important thesis to argue in this magazine, reference to any similar articles the magazine has published recently, and a short biography. We do not accept simultaneous submissions of manuscripts or poetry. An honorarium is paid upon publication.The word limits (which should be adhered to strictly) are:

  • Opinions: 1,000 to 2,000 words
  • 
Feature Articles: 2,500 to 4,000 words
  • Book Reviews: 1,250 to 1,500 words

3. Forward

The Forward and Yiddish Forverts regularly accept submissions from outside contributors. The best guide to our style and content is our newspapers and websites themselves; the best way to figure out what we’re looking for is to read them. Here are some additional details to assist you in pitching stories to our editors.

Payment

Fees differ depending on the intended medium, section and the work in question. Your editor should inform you of the rate upon commissioning your work. (If he or she does not, feel free to ask.) In the event that a written work accepted for publication is not used, the writer generally will receive 50 percent of the agreed-upon fee.

Contributors are paid by electronic transfer (ACH) to their designated bank accounts, where available, and elsewhere by PayPal, or as a last resort, by check.

4. GrokNation

GrokNation is a communal space where we can read, discuss, explore, learn and truly understand the issues that shape our modern lives: from the social impact of pop culture to the importance of human connection, from causes that help to heal communities large and small to the challenges of raising the next generation of activists. Smart and passionate, with a quirky sense of humor and an unapologetic nerdiness, GrokNation is a place for people of all ages and backgrounds – this means you! – to spend time thinking deeply about things that matter, trying to “grok” them.

5. Image Journal

We welcome unsolicited submissions and consider all submissions carefully. Because of limited staff time, we’re not able to guarantee personalized feedback, but please know that we’re grateful to each writer who takes the risk of sharing work with us. We produce two publications: Image, a quarterly journal, and Good Letters, a daily blog.

All the work we publish reflects what we see as a sustained engagement with one of the western faiths—Judaism, Christianity, or Islam. That engagement can include unease, grappling, or ambivalence as well as orthodoxy; the approach can be indirect or allusive, but for a piece to be a fit for Image or Good Letters, some connection to faith must be there.

10 Religious sites that pay Wix - The Write Styles

6. Leben

Leben is a quarterly, four-color magazine that tells the stories of the Protestant Reformers and those who have followed in their footsteps through the ages. We are a popular history publication that aims at a general readership.

Those interested in writing for Leben should read through several articles on our website.

We are published by City Seminary of Sacramento, California, and so we do have a slightly parochial slant toward the German Reformation, due to our historical lineage, but articles about the Swiss, Dutch, Scottish, English, Hungarian and other reformation movements are all of interest to us.

We are not a theological journal, per se, i.e. while we have a perspective, our articles do not expressly deal with theological propositions. There are many publications devoted to discussing theology, we focus on the people and events that make up the Reformation tradition.

Above all, articles should be interesting to a general readership, seeking to bring alive the events and personalities of a particular period. Avoid being preachy and moralizing. Again, there are places for those kinds of articles, but that is not our mission. Most of our readers can draw their own conclusions without being force-fed. Tell a good, well-researched and historically accurate story.

How to Choose the Right Freelance Writer for Your Project

You’ve put your heart and soul into establishing a business that is successful and useful so, naturally, you’d want potential clients to know that. Marketing has undergone many structural changes with our increasing reliance on digital media. It’s not only important that your company has advertising campaigns, it also needs to have a strong online presence; that means good content. Prospective clients and audiences want to be continuously exposed to information that keeps them involved, informed and engaged. While you’re occupied with the finer technical details of your project, someone needs to take care of the content. Luckily, there’s a whole range of talented and diverse freelance writers out there just waiting for the opportunity to work with you. All that’s left to do, is find the right freelance writer for your project.

How are you finding writers?

One thing that is certain is that there is a plethora of writers out there, eager to work on exciting new projects; the question is how to find the writer that is perfect for you. There are many online platforms that facilitate this.

You could place ads on job listing sites and have writers contact you with their details and samples of their work. This is simple and opens the door to a variety of writers who will work for different rates. Sites such as Upwork, Craigslist and Freelancer operate by allowing writers to create profiles and submit proposals to prospective clients. Clients can select prime candidates, conduct interviews, compare bids and view feedback from previous clients.

To focus your search even more, you could contact writers directly rather than through these platforms. This allows you to view their portfolio and see how people interact with their work, the writer’s range, their voice and how that voice is used to speak on behalf of their clients. Using agencies is often a good idea because the writers have already been vetted and are tried and trusted, and the company will be able to gauge which writer is the best fit for you.

Expert Writers

While finding a writer who is an expert in your industry may be a requirement in some cases, it’s not always necessary. Writers may not be qualified in your market, but sufficient research, attention to detail, and skill will get the job done. If you do need a writer who is familiar with your project, consider how you view their portfolios or writing samples. Don’t only look for work that reads well or is entertaining, but consider whether the writer can work with technical terms and can skillfully construct pieces of writing.

Social Media

Social media is not going anywhere – use it. You may have writers in your network on LinkedIn or PartnerUp. This works well if you need expert writers; writers that have working knowledge in a specific topic or niche. Checking up on a writer’s social media can help to better understand not only their style and how they interact with clients, but also the client’s experiences working with the writer.
When you have a niche market and need writers with experience and knowledge in your field, try to form long-term partnerships, rather than working with a writer once only.

Developing Relationships

Don’t underestimate the benefits of building long-term, mutually beneficial partnerships with writers. The writer will already be familiar with your voice, style and brand, and will know what is expected of them. This not only makes the writing process quicker, it will streamline the process of finding a writer when a new project comes up.

Offering longer term arrangements with writers also means the writer is invested in your project, and will work as efficiently as possible to ensure you are eager to work with them again in the future. This may lead to finding writers that are dedicated and not just looking to make a quick buck.

While finding a writer that is talented and skillful is your main concern, consider how professional they are; do they respond promptly; are they committed to too many projects; do they follow directions?

Once you have found writers that have both these qualities, begin building a database. While having a partnership with one writer moulded to your style is ideal, writers can be unavailable, but if this is the case they may be able to share your requirements with writers in their circle.

Be specific about what you need

It’s important to be specific about what you need from the writer and it may be helpful to have an outline of your article. But don’t demand that the writer follows a specific set-up; rather allow room for creativity. Writers may be more attuned to what would make a better article. You pay for a writer allow them to write. Be sure of what you need the content to achieve so that the writer can be sure too.

Don’t forget about the mundane administrative details. It’s always important to be clear about when the project is due, whether you need updates on the progress of the project, how much it pays as well as when it pays. Avoid any misunderstandings that will stand in the way of a good professional relationship. When posting listings, make sure all the information is available, so that anyone applying is sure they are up to the task.

What to look for in a portfolio

It’s always necessary to view previous work and samples of writing. If the writer has a blog or online platform – which most writers do – read the feedback on their work. Read comments and reviews to understand previous clients’ experiences working with the writer. Look at the audience’s engagement with their work – do they respond and interact through comments, is the voice received well? References from previous working relationships is always helpful.

When looking at resumes, it’s not always necessary to have a writer with a journalism or writing degree. Writers can come from diverse fields and what is important is their dedication to the craft. Be open to writers who are not be native-English speakers; writing is an art and what is important is that the product doesn’t read like it was written by a second language speaker.

Finding the right writer is simply finding a writer whose style and voice compliments your project. Ensure that they have the same vision for the project and that they have the commitment and skill that will contribute to a dynamic and prolific professional relationship.
