Writing For Us

If you would like write an article for KentNews.Online, read on…

Welcome to KentNews.Online, the site for new about Kent, written by the people of Kent. We cover all the news from Kent and guest writers are encouraged to submit articles to publish.

If you would like to be a writer, you can submit your articles here. You can choose which articles you would like to write, across any of our categories. There is no limit to how many articles you write and you can make them serious, factual or humorous, it is up to you.

There is no pressure to have to write articles to a deadline or write so many per week. You can submit as many or as few articles as you wish. You can write because you enjoy writing, because you have come across an interesting story in your area or just because you want to voice your opinion on a local (or national) issue. We want to provide an outlet for the people of Kent to write their own news.

All articles are checked and verified by our staff before they are published on KentNews.Online. This is to ensure the writing is accurate, responsible, interesting and suitable for all ages. Our rules are quite broad and we challenge our writers to take risks, use humour or sarcasm and express your own opinion. However, we will not allow any unfair, defamatory, racist or slanderous articles.

If you run a business and are based in Kent, submit your offers so that we can share them to our readers in our ‘Kent Offers’ section. There is no charge for this, so please use this free service to get some great publicity for your business.

We reserve the right to amend any article (or in some cases, withhold publication, if your article is deemed unsuitable). Your article will be attributed to you as the author, so you can show your work to colleagues, family and friends. Over time you can build a portfolio of articles all in your name and you may even appear in our Top 10 writers list.

You may use an alias instead of your real name, although you should use the same name so all articles will be attributed to you. We do ask for an email address whenever you submit an article, so that we can contact you, should we have any questions relating to your submission.

Whether you plan to be a journalist, have an interest in writing or seen/heard something news worthy, we would like to hear from all of you. Even if you do not live in Kent, we have our Lifestyle section where you can write interesting articles on all sorts of topics. We look forward to receiving your interesting articles to help us become the best community supported news site in Kent.

When you are ready to write your article, please submit it here.
