News and Articles will be researched and reviewed - please provide the Editor with your bibliography, which will be published along with your article. 
Summary:
Firstly, please don't feel intimidated by the guidelines (especially the full print at the bottom of the page). This is something that I have to include but won't really affect you when sharing your guest blog or creative endeavours collaborations.

Being practical, I have created a summary - please read it. I know how overwhelming it can be to go through all the "small print".

However, if you are an aspiring journalist and want to collaborate, I suggest reading everything to avoid doubt.


At this stage,
The Introvert is not a registered business but a personal endeavour; for that reason, we can only accept free contributions. We cannot accept volunteers or paid freelance creators. 
 
Please be kind and courteous to yourself and others.

Whatever you do is on you - you are responsible for what you do and write. 

Don't name anyone else in your work unless they give you permission - ideally, you would have it in writing.

Your contributions are yours and will feature under your name.
The Introvert will not have copyrights - thus, you can ask for your work to be removed, or you can publish it wherever you like - but please advise the editor of this.

But most importantly - enjoy your creativity! 
It's great to have you on board!
