Do you like to write metaphors? Would you like to contribute to our publication?

How to become a contributor:

Comment below to let us know you are interested in becoming a writer and we will add you to our page.

We are currently accepting metaphors in English, Spanish, and French.

Once you’re added as a writer:

You should be notified via email, and I will reply to your comment in case the email fails. Then you can submit your stories by creating an original draft, clicking on the three little dots in the top right corner, and selecting Metaphorically Speaking. We’ll receive the submission, review it, and publish it. If it is not accepted we’ll let you know why.

We do not wish to reject articles so please make sure your story is metaphorical in some way.

Must-haves for each submission

Clear and focused writing that makes a point or tells a story.

Check your grammar, spelling, and punctuation. We recommend using Grammarly to catch the basics. We are not into taking the time to edit little things but if we see a tiny mistake, we may edit without notifying you.

We are not currently accepting previously published Medium stories.

We will not accept clickbait or affiliate links. Stories for the purpose of selling products will not be accepted.

Please keep Medium curation guidelines in mind:

Getting curated on Medium gets you more readers and helps get your work recognized. It is by no means a requirement for our publication but we would like to encourage following to improve your writing experience.

At the moment, only English articles are considered for curation but even if you are writing in French or Spanish you may want to follow this advice.

Some things to remember are:

A clear and descriptive title and subtitle

A feature photo (with the source cited)

Proper proofreading

Do not include ads, content marketing, or requests for donations or claps

Tag your story appropriately.

This helps readers find your story and will help us organize the publication as it grows.

Metaphorically Speaking

Metaphor is the language of the unconscious mind. This is a collection of stories that speak to a deeper level. Fiction or non-fiction, its storytelling that leaves an impact.
