Lost Woods is a UK based website with an aim to provide a community platform for novice, regular, aspiring and occasional writers to get their written film, TV or gaming opinions published onto the interweb. We are always on the lookout for reviews and articles, so if you like the idea of getting your own work published, you may just have come to the right place! You do not have to be based in the UK to submit a piece, reviewers are welcome from all over the world, and all are treated equally.
We know there are plenty of film and entertainment websites out there, as well as a million personal film blogs, but we hope to offer something different. Going from being a novice film blogger to writing for an entertainment website is no mean feat but we hope to operate in the middle ground. Our aim is to build a Lost Woods community, with novice writers getting a chance to bring film and TV lovers together for like-minded chat and reflection.
We are just now starting to get screener links for upcoming films and shows so there is a real opportunity to see some fantastic films before their general release. Your work will be promoted on our website and via our social media channels, and remain online as a free writer’s portfolio. As the site grows, it is our hope that any revenues generated from your work, from your pieces page views and clicks from affiliates and Google AdSense, will be paid to you. At present though, we sadly can’t pay for any pieces submitted to the website, but all views are tracked for future monetization.
If writing is not your thing, we hope to have video reviews or even develop a podcast in the near future. Please get in touch if this is of interest to you.
If you are interested in working with/collaborating/writing for Lost Woods then there are a few rules to bear in mind.
Articles or pieces must be relevant to the Lost Woods website. Film, TV or gaming reviews are most welcome – as are any odd pieces that may look at culture etc. They could be for old stuff, new stuff, short stuff or unheard-of stuff – frankly we don’t care as long as its relevant. Top 10 pieces, best of, look backs, reviews, opinion pieces or oddities – you choose.
We can publish articles anywhere between 250–2,500 words, depending on the article’s complexity.
Pieces must be unique and written solely for Lost Woods, and not published elsewhere. A personal blogs back-catalogue of reviews can be transferred to our site, but it must come down from elsewhere first.
It must be well written. I know, coming from me that sounds a bit rich, but pieces must be in the English language and written so they can be easily read. Please spell-check pieces first and then re-read and re-read again. We may do small edits to your piece but we want the work to be publishable upon receipt where possible.
Submissions can be made via email, either in mail text or via a word or pdf document.
Submissions will be reviewed and, if they meet the publishing criteria above, they will go live within 24-48 hours.
That’s about it. If you like Lost Woods and want to help us grow, please get in touch via email or social media, or submit your pieces directly to firstname.lastname@example.org.
