Thank you for your interest in submitting an article for publication on EFTFree.net. We welcome all submissions. Submission guidelines and manuscript preparation instructions are as follows:
A Myriad of EFT Articles
We are interested in many different kinds of articles, highlighting innovation and unique approaches and perspectives. We welcome case studies and session stories. We also seek articles about how Core EFT skills have worked in your life as well as for those with whom you share EFT. In essence, we seek thought-provoking EFT-focused articles, with an emphasis on innovation and new applications of EFT. A good rule of thumb is – if it feels exciting for you, it will probably be of particular interest for our readers.
Consider sharing your insights into a specific area that not only illuminates your work but transcends it. For example, you might share how tapping on anger revealed many core feelings that the person was angry about, which – when addressed with EFT along with an inner visual of some kind – helped them sleep better than they had in months. In other words, consider allowing the reader to glean important new insights into the practice and power of EFT. In essence, we’re looking for diversity – from how you approach your work in a particular area to articles that will stretch and teach us all.
In short, we are looking for articles that share, from your own experience:
- Concise case studies, session stories and EFT experiences
- Information about your Art of Delivery within a specific EFT niche
- New tapping techniques and applications
- How EFT relates to scientific inquiry around complimentary modalities (acupressure, mindfulness, acupuncture, for example)
- How EFT integrates into other, innovative methods
- Thought-provoking ideas regarding EFT
- Experiences around interesting applications and venues of EFT
Articles must be original; you must be the sole owner of the copyright and be fully able to give us permission to publish. This means that the articles you submit have not been published elsewhere in the exact same form in which you are sending them to us. In general, we envision EFTfree.net as a place for sharing new work – work that has not yet been published or has only been previously published by you (such as in your own newsletter).
If you have an EFT experience that has been published in the past that still feels profound – dust it off, revisit it with some minor changes, perhaps with a new introduction or further followup — and submit it to us. This method of slightly re-working articles for multiple appearances is standard in the publishing world.
Please submit all manuscripts using our Article Submission Form. In the body of the submission form, please provide a brief overview of the article, yourself, and your work (just a sentence or two). Use plain text with no formatting. In the body of your document please include your name, address, telephone number and website. We reserve the right to format your article for blog publication, like adding italics and tabs to better illuminate tapping language, for example.
Due to space and readability considerations on our blog, please try to keep your articles as succinct as possible – we suggest a maximum of 1000 words. If you edit your work carefully, preferably with very little extra formatting (please avoid italics, bullets, excessive dots, etc.) we will be able to easily publish it. Please understand that while we want to be flexible and get your article published, we cannot spend time unnecessarily editing or spell checking. Articles that are not publishable will have to be returned to the author(s) for revision. Further, while our goal would be to share every article that comes in, we must reserve the right to publish at our discretion. If you have any questions about these publication policies, please get in touch.
If English is not your native language, we will make allowance for that. However, please consult a fluent English-speaking person in an effort to have your article publication-ready.
While we want to highlight all the consistent and often extraordinary benefits of EFT, we appreciate you taking care to speak from your own experience in your articles. In other words, please avoid making sensationalistic or unsubstantiated claims or predicting specific outcomes. Often, simply adding the qualifier “in my own experience…” or “it is my understanding that…” or “I have found that…” will help keep all of our articles experience-based and invite readers to investigate your content and EFT further. As we prepare to publish your article, we reserve the right to edit for these considerations.
Articles are Non-Commercial in Nature
UPDATE: 2/11 While we welcome unique articles, we cannot publish articles that blatantly promote product announcements or include marketing materials. We will, however, always include your byline (name), website and location so that people can link back to all you have to offer elsewhere. Since July 2010, we’ve also begun including a short bio at the end of each article. If your article is an excerpt from a book of yours or a newsletter you publish (or even an ebook or program you have available, for example) we can include this in your bio. While we love promoting your EFT perspectives and individualized services, we are careful to avoid products disguised as articles. Up to this point we have been fortunate to always publish work that speaks for itself, and we want to continue this practice while including helpful information for our readers. We reserve the right to edit your article in accordance with our submission policies.
UPDATE 1/11: Since there are now more widely recognized certification standards for EFT, we are including “Certified EFT Practitioner/Trainer or EFT Master” in author bios at the bottom of each article. All bylines at the top of each article will continue to use the author’s first and last name only along with a website or email link and geographical location. See Recoving from Childhood Abuse for an example. For science-related articles, we are also including “Dr.” or “Ph.D.” after the author’s name, where appropriate.
