My goal here is to get you thinking: "If I was going to write for Supermaker, what might I write about?"
At the core of Supermaker, we do two things: 1) celebrate diverse, independent consumer brands, and 2) start conversations that promote better businesses and workplaces. Our writers cover the real life stuff that happens at work, and shine a spotlight on the people behind the progressive brands of our era.
There are no hard rules when it comes to writing for Supermaker, but we encourage approaches that inspire confidence for our readers when navigating their own careers and businesses, and empower them to take positive actions. We don’t back away from topics like mental health, intersectionality, or equality, and some of our best work relies on approachable storytelling that fosters emotional connections and prompts readers to self-reflect. It may help to think of yourself as both a storyteller, and a conversation starter.
Don’t hold back. We love big, crazy ideas that other media companies won’t risk getting behind. We like understated, actionable ones too. And we believe in the power of Supermaker as a platform to drive change.
That’s why we generally put the onus on you to generate ideas for your articles, rather than assigning work directly. Personal experiences and affinity for the subject at hand are irreplaceable. That said, there are instances in which we do assign work—particularly when Supermaker has identified an up & coming brand to feature, or we’re covering a current event.
Inspired? Email firstname.lastname@example.org with a short pitch. We read every submission we receive, and Supermaker is always looking for thoughtful content in the pursuit of our greater mission to promote better businesses and workplaces.
We look forward to hearing from you.
