Woman working on a laptop pondering what to write

When you look at the Henpicked website, you’ll see articles on just about everything.

Kay GarrettFrom running, walking and cycling to shopping, cooking and styling, from alternative healthcare advice to getting the best from your business.

And all these articles are written by women just like you. Real women. Women with something to share.

But we do know that not everyone has the time, or the confidence, to put their ideas down in writing.

As the editor for Henpicked, I’m here to help you in every way I can. Maybe you’ve already written an article and it just needs a heading and a spellcheck. Or maybe you’ve got a great idea but you don’t know where to begin.

Don’t be put off! You can always send me a brain dump of your thoughts and I’ll fashion them into an article. If you’re unsure of how to structure your piece, just let me know what you’d like to write about and I can send you an outline of what might be the best order, or email some questions over to prompt you. Or I can chat to you on the phone if you prefer.

We think our authors are amazing. And that’s why I’ll always make sure your articles keep your own ‘voice’, your humour and your insights.

Writing a piece for Henpicked is a hugely generous way of passing on your life experiences to other women. And we don’t just publish articles on our website. We share them through social media, and re-issue them throughout the year.

Our authors say…

“Henpicked has a very friendly team to support article writing. I wasn’t worried about submitting a perfect piece – they make a few tweaks and you feel great about being ‘in print’!”

Helen Leach

“I am not a professional writer but I do love writing. Henpicked has given me the opportunity to write about what interests me. I’m sure my articles are littered with grammatical mistakes and mis-spelled words. But they are transformed into professional well-polished articles even my old English teacher would be proud of!”
