Guest Posting Guidelines

SO, YOU’D LIKE TO GUEST POST ON MADE WITH A TWIST?!

I love collaborating with other crochet professionals and helping to spread the word about both new and established designers. I’d be so happy to share your crochet patterns and tutorials with my readers.

As you may already know, the focus of the Made with a Twist blog is to provide patterns that are optimized for crochet sellers. So, I’m looking for designs that are quick to make, affordable and easy to produce in bulk, and are either classic favorites or on trend for the current/coming season.

If that sounds like something you’d like to design, let’s connect!

A LITTLE MORE INFO

The Made with a Twist blog is open to sharing designs that are created for all levels of crocheter, but finds that beginner to intermediate level designs do best. I’m accepting applications for traditional crochet, Tunisian crochet, and filet crochet, but if you have something different in mind, please feel free to apply and pitch your idea.

Please be cognizant of the fact that high-quality photos are a necessity. And designs that include a video tutorial, tech-editing, and which have been created to appeal to the Made with a Twist audience (mostly sellers), have the best chance for being selected.

Your following is not important and will not be taken into consideration for guest posts. I love sharing the work of up-and-coming designers and would be happy to help you ‘get your name out there.’
