GovCon Wire is the premier source of breaking news for the government contracting industry. We provide direct and informative pieces of the most significant contract awards, executive moves, M&A activity and other industry trends.
Executive Mosaic caters to professionals within the government contracting industry. Our readers consist of top executives from some of the largest government contracting firms as well as officials from the public sector. Articles submitted to Executive Mosaic’s media properties are required to abide by our editorial guidelines.
These guidelines include:
Submitted content should be related to one of the existing categories on the site which you are seeking to engage in. Before submitting content, please take some time to check whether the topic you plan on submitting has been previously featured as only unique content, which not previously discussed on the site will be published. Duplicate content will not be accepted.
We do not impose strict length limits on guest content. However, we highly encourage submissions to contain no less than 800 words. Any content shorter than that would require extra justifications.
Content posted on our site are advised to follow these structural guidelines:
Titles should be around 60 characters. Titles should be clear, concise, and include a target keyword.
H1s are not allowed within the article. Please use H2s for main section headings and H3s for subsections. If possible, please use questions as headings. The more questions a submission answers, the better it would perform.
Sections under headings should not exceed 250 words. If you need to include more words, we suggest that you use another subheading (H3). We prefer shorter paragraphs that contain 3-4 sentences each. Breaking longer paragraphs into smaller ones helps make the content more appealing to our target audience.
Introductions & Conclusions:
Submissions will need to have introductory and concluding paragraphs which contain 100-150 words each.
