Getting Published on The Essential LIfe

Here at The Essential Life, we receive a large number of submission requests. The volume of submissions that we receive means that we could either take weeks &  sometimes months to read through, edit & post the articles we receive, or we could contract a team of editors to help us get through the workload more quickly.

To serve YOU better, we opted to bring a few editors on board to help us read, edit & post all of the articles that YOU submit. 

To make this possible, we now charge a small reading fee for each article. The $5 reading fee goes directly to the editor who reads, edits & posts the articles that YOU submit. 

When YOU submit YOUR article to The Essential Life, we will contact YOU with details on how to pay the reading fee.

Please note, we will endeavour to read & publish articles & blogs as quickly as possible, however, publishing times may vary. One of our editors will be in touch with YOU within 48 hours of receiving YOUR article & payment.
