3.f. Story is Too Short

Helpful content is what search engines are giving more space to. To improve the quality of our content, we set strict limits on minimum word count. Our minimum word count is 500 words, moving forward, we will auto-reject pieces under 500 words.

Although that is our minimum, we only want to publish pieces 800 words or more. If you’re going to write something under 800 words, it better be the best 799 words we’ve read all week. If it isn’t, we will reject it and ask you to write more to add more value to the piece.
