Would you like to contribute to Jump! Mag? Email us, using the Contact Us form at the bottom of this page.
Pre-teens or teens are especially welcome to write for our #writtenbyyou section. Please have a parent or guardian contact us to give permission for you to submit an article.
Parents – please resist the urge to ‘tidy up’ your child’s contribution. We only edit articles by our pre-teen or teen readers if the meaning is unclear, not to correct grammar or spelling mistakes. Your child has an authentic voice; we don’t meddle with it.
While we are happy to link back to your blog or website, if this is a commercial venture then the link will be a no-follow link. We don’t accept articles that are written with the specific intent of promoting a product.
The site is non-profit making, and so for this reason, we cannot pay for contributions.
We are always open for contributions from new writers, so if you would like to write for Jump! Mag or Jump! Parents simply drop us a quick email to discuss what you are planning.
The rights to any articles that you submit remain with you. You can repost them elsewhere on the internet, but we would appreciate a link back to Jump!
If we need to edit the post, we will contact you first. Minor alterations in formatting or correction of spelling mistakes are excluded from this. You can refuse the alterations if you do not agree with them. If we need to make significant changes after the article has gone online, we will take the article down while we contact you for permission.
Everything in your article is your opinion and your responsibility. Please ensure that you check quotes, links, and citations and ensure that you own the copyright of any images that you submit with the article.
If you are unhappy with one of your articles and would like it removed, we shall do so as soon as possible. We reserve the right to remove an article. We shall endeavour to promote your article, via Twitter, Facebook etc and would be grateful if you would do the same in return. Linking to your article is fine, as long as you are not being paid for it.
If you wish to repost the article elsewhere, we request that you let us know.
If you have a personal link to a subject or have received a free or discounted product for review, please let us know when you submit the article so that we can assess if this needs to be made clear to our readers.
Unless otherwise arranged, contributions should be approximately 500 to 700 words in length.
Links to sources are appreciated, as are images. Images should be used in every article, so please let us know if you have one. Otherwise, we will use a stock image.
Our target audience is pre-teen, so around 8 years to 14 years, so please tailor your articles to suit this market. Swearing, abusive or offensive language is not appropriate. Articles about politics are welcome but do try to stay objective so that the readers can form their own opinions. Articles submitted by our younger contributors may be slanted to reflect their view.
You may use your own name or a pseudonym, whichever you feel most comfortable using. Contributors under the age of 18 will be known by their first name only, in order to protect their privacy.
As the site develops, these guidelines may be subject to change.
