Write for Us

The Motorcycle Legal Foundation is the top resource for expert advice and all things motorcycles. We only publish premium content, and have strict quality requirements. If you would like to be featured on our site as a guest author, please read the following before submission.

What We’re Looking For

You may submit a rough draft, a partial draft, or a short pitch (a paragraph or two summarizing your article idea and why it matters to our readers) paired with an outline. The more complete your submission is, the better feedback we can give you. We only accept original content—We will not publish anything that’s been published elsewhere or has been covered on our blog before.

No self promotion – this website is intended to help motorcyclists, not advertise your company or product.

Before you submit, look at our recent articles for insight into structuring and formatting your piece, and make sure your submission:

  • Has a narrative angle – stories interest people, random tips and data do not.
  • Is written for an audience of motorcycle enthusiasts.
  • Is factually accurate. Assertions will be fact checked. Please cite your sources.

What We Publish

We publish articles of anywhere between 1000–2,500 words, depending on subject complexity. 1,500 words is about average. The length is up to you, however originality and quality are the most important factors we consider in our articles.

Any images included with your article must be high quality, relevant, and not plagiarized. Creative Commons licensed images must follow these conditions: https://wiki.creativecommons.org/wiki/Best_practices_for_attribution

Links in the body of the post need to provide value to the reader and support the articles main topic. Self-promotional links will be nofollowed, and may be removed entirely if we feel they add no value to the reader.

How to Submit

Email us your submission. We prefer submissions as Google documents so that editors can easily provide feedback and guidance directly within your draft. We will review your submission and determine whether it’s a potential fit. If so, the team will review and discuss it. This happens once a week. The editor will collect the team’s feedback and get back to you with notes.

We rarely accept an article the first time around, but we’ll tell you if we’re interested. Once you’ve addressed our comments, send your revised draft back. We will discuss it again and let you know if we want to accept it.

If we accept your article, We’ll schedule you for publication as soon as revisions are complete. Published submissions are entitled to an author byline and bio, plus one link to your personal website, social profile, or team member/author page on your company website. Links directly to product or service pages where you have a commercial interest will not be allowed.
