Write For Us
PHH – Write for Us
Want to write for Pure Health Hub or Pure Health Travel? We’d love to hear from you.
Here is our guide on how to pitch to us the types of articles that we publish.
Every piece of editorial must be original, not published elsewhere, and helpful to our audience.
Pure Health Hub’s aim is to educate and motivate women to take control of their physical, mental, environmental and social health, and explore the many medical and complementary health services, treatments and products available to them.
Though our goal is to deliver quality information to women over 35, some members of the audience won’t be familiar with certain health topics and can be intimidated by medical jargon that they are unfamiliar with.
We want to reach “every woman” so, rather than “talking shop” as trade and research publications tend to, our editorial needs to be engaging and easy to process. This doesn’t mean “dumbing it down” or treating readers as ignorant, just using language that is engaging, inclusive, relatable and warm. Please use as much appropriate humour as is justified in the story.
Each story should still be thoroughly researched, and fact checked and should include comprehensive information about the topics. Absolutely No plagiarism. They will be checked.
Our content has multiple health methodologies; Medical, Natural Therapies, Integrative Health and these are then consigned to one or more of our streams (environmental, spiritual, mental, physical, emotional & travel).
This stream is written strictly by medical professionals and addresses topics that are clinical in nature. We will usually only publish our own medical writers’ articles. However, if you are a qualified medical professional and would like to write for us, please introduce yourself by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Integrative Health Editorial – for all other streams (except travel)
We are open to pitches for all our health streams. Physical, Emotional, Mental, Spiritual and Environmental in interviews, features, first person essays and narratives – we are particularly interested in exploring experiences through the lens of uncommon or underrepresented health conditions for women and/or raising awareness of illnesses or disorders that are underfunded.
Female specific medical research is limited by comparison to male because of the complexity of female hormones. So, topics that could explain or answer questions many women are seeking or offer a new perspective will be enthusiastically considered.
Travel Section & Remedy Travels
Wellness Tourism is an exponentially growing segment, and our readers are keen to learn more about what properties, practitioners and destinations are offering.
We are open to pitches from writers who have experienced the property, destination and activity personally.
Word Count & Rates
Our average word count for any piece is around 750-1000 words. You are welcome to pitch something longer.
For all features our current rate is $A200. For personal essays where no additional research is required is $A100.
Of course, professional writers can pitch us their stories and provide a price for it.
