Criteria

Only unique and never published articles are accepted. Each article should be approximately 700 words in length. Please spell check your work. Your article should be in text format. Do not copy a Word document directly into the form below. Word documents contain special formatting characters that will require extensive editing.

Here is how you can do that:

  1. Place you cursor over the “Save As” option.
  2. Click the “Other Formats” option.
  3. Click the arrow to open the Option List.
  4. Select “Plain Text” for the “save as type”.
  5. Give your text file a name.
  6. Click the “Save” button.

Now open your plain text document and select your whole article (CTRL-A), copy the article (CTRL-C) and then paste (CTRL-V) your article into the form below.

Then click here to read what others have written.

Don’t worry about bold headlines, and bullet points. I can add them using HTML code before publishing your article.

If your article is about Sudoku Strategies, click the link provided and submit your article there.

I will review your article making any minor changes if necessary. Then I will publish your article. You can have our system notify you by email when I have published your article and where it is located.
