Frequently Asked Questions
What is 1 Minute Reads?
Write short interesting posts. Whether you’re an amateur, intermediate, or advanced writer, contribute to 1 Minute Reads as much as you want. Looking for short reads of under 200 words, but if your article is longer this does not mean it will be rejected. Keep your content short and sweet.
Please aim to add at least five tags to your submission.
You can load your article up with as many affiliate links as you like as I realise that we are all trying to earn a buck or two in this world. However, I think this may reduce the chance of curation by the Medium editors.
You Agree to Submit at Least One Article Per Month
Yes, a lot of people say that they write for a lot of publications, but do they? I myself have joined about fifteen publications, and I try to submit to each one. Please submit at least once piece per month to 1 Minute Reads. Cheers very much.
Please add a picture to your content, ideally from Unsplash, as this will attract more readers to your post.
Post New or Already Published Content
You are welcome to add already published articles, but sending draft articles to 1 Minute Reads is preferred. I aim to publish content within 24 hours.
Content Not Welcome
Any content containing racism, prejudice, sexism, hate, or trolling will not be published here. I’m also a Christian, so any content promoting new age or organised religion (including catholicism) will not be published. Christian content is welcome. Thank you for your understanding.
The Right to Remove Your Profile
I get at least 5 to 10 new requests from writers who wish to contribute to 1 Minute Reads per week, but a lot of people have not submitted any content yet. I want this publication to grow, and to help your writing profile along the way.
After I have added you as a writer to 1 Minute Reads, if you have not submitted any content within a month of your addition, I will remove you from the writer list.
Earn Through the Medium Partner Program
When you write articles, before you hit publish and write your tags, you will notice a box alerting you to the Medium Partner Program. If you want to earn money then you need to keep this box ticked. This will lock your articles so that only members can read, highlight, comment, and applause your content.
This is automatically ticked, so if you want to unlock the item you need to untick the box.
Please note that 1 Minute Reads does not earn any revenue from The Medium Partner Program. Your writing profile is your own. Perhaps you will impress the curators with your content and you will earn more money.
Remove Your Content at any Time
Your content is your own copyright, and you are free to unpublish or remove this at any time. However, all I ask is that you continue to add regular content.
Thanks for reading, and welcome aboard fellow writers.
