Article submissions to Todays Writing are free and new additions to our database are indexed regularly by search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo and may appear within the search results within 24 hours. This means that any article you submit will be indexed and available to all visitors or publishers who may wish to use your content on their website or newsletters.
Todays Writing's ability to remain a free service to everyone is due to advertiser support. We reserve the right to publish ads on the same pages as your articles, to include ads in email alerts and/or XML feeds of any kind.
Your article content must meet the submission guidelines of the Todays Writing's Staff pre-screening process to include the following guidelines:
- Submissions must be 100% exclusively owned by you. If you are submitting for someone else, please submit the article as if it were from them.
- Submit your article only once. Duplicate submissions will not be accepted. There is no tolerance for this practice and authors who practice in this will be removed and banned.
- Submissions that are commercial or strictly advertisment in content are not acceptable. This includes: advertisements, sales letters, promotional copy, or articles with blatant/excessive self-promotion or hype. Todays Writing is a free-content directory not a platform for advertising commercial products, services and/or programs.

Author Bio: ( 200 ) words.

Article Formatting and Links
We strongly recommend that authors submitting to Todays Writing copy and paste articles from a basic text editor like Notepad or NoteTab Light and Mac users should use TextEdit. Following this suggestion will ensure that paragraph breaks, line length and other basic formatting will be properly handled by our submission form. Copying and pasting content from applications like MS Word can and does result in a variety of formatting problems. These applications use non-ASCII (sometimes invisible) characters that are copied with article content into the submission form, causing articles to appear differently from the way they were submitted.
Keeping the above in mind, it is not necessary for authors to use html tags for specifying font size or to create paragraph and line breaks. Use of HTML should be minimal and we suggest HTML tags only be used for creating live links to sites, services or products. Any link that begins with "http://" will automatically be clickable. For example, "http://www.todayswriting.com/" would appear as a hyperlink. To hyperlink a word or phrase, HTML anchor tags need to be placed around that word or phrase.
