Guest Posting Policies

We are excited to have patients, patient advocates, and health care professionals develop content for the Cancer.Net Blog; however, we regret that we are not able to work with everyone who would like to become a guest poster. Please take a minute to review the information below to find out more about whether your idea for a guest post would be a good fit for the Cancer.Net Blog and how to submit your idea to our editorial team.

General Editorial Guidelines

  • A guest post can take any form you like—a personal essay, a video, or a podcast. Consider the story you want to tell and the best way to tell it.
  • Written guest posts should be no longer than 650 words, and videos and podcasts should last no more than 5 minutes. If you would like to submit a photo to accompany your post, please send a jpg or gif image no larger than 175 pixels wide x 300 pixels tall with the finalized content of your post.
  • We want people to be informed and inspired by your message. Guest posts are not a forum to promote products or businesses. For instance, while you might pull examples or quotes from a book you have written, the point of your guest post cannot be to sell your book.
  • We will not publish or will remove any post in which you pretend to be someone else; misrepresent your affiliation with a person or entity; or upload, post, or transmit content that is:
    • Inaccurate, harmful, obscene, pornographic, defamatory, racist, violent, offensive, or harassing;
    • Otherwise objectionable to ASCO or other users of the website;
    • Violates or infringes anyone’s intellectual property rights; or
    • Inconsistent with any of the other terms and conditions of Cancer.Net.

How to Become a Guest Poster

  • If you feel your idea for a guest post would be a good fit, email us at blog@cancer.net. Be sure to include a short (2 to 3 sentence) description of the post you would like to create, your full name, and any cancer-related organizations/associations/projects you are affiliated with.
  • A member of our editorial team will contact you within 10 days to let you know if your post idea has been accepted for development. You will have at least two weeks to create your post and submit it for review.  For written posts, we’ll do some light editing for spelling and grammar. Then we will let you know if the post has been accepted for publication. We reserve the right to decline any post at any time.
