Write For en-form!
We are looking for enthusiastic wordsmiths in the UK, passionate about all things eco to write for us. You don’t need to have any previous experience writing blogs, what you do need is a keen interest in environmental matters.
Please note that we are a not a platform for political viewpoints, so all articles must be balanced and unbiased; and while you are welcome to mention your company or organisation, advertorials are not permitted.
This is the ideal opportunity for anyone looking to get writing experience to add to their CV, or for experienced writers who would like to volunteer their skills to a good cause!
To be considered for publication, articles must meet the following criteria:
- Be relevant to a UK audience
- Relate to the environment
- Have a new, or newsworthy angle
- Be unbiased and factually correct
- Contain source links and references to facts quoted
What kind of blogs do we want?
Our main categories are:
- Waste and recycling
- Local food
You can blog on any of these topics, or you can blog about something that encompasses a mix of these – but please do not duplicate information that is already on the website.
Here are some examples of the types of blogs we are looking to publish:
- Guides and ‘How To’ posts
- Green and Eco News – STRICTLY UNBIASED
- Reviews of eco products
- Local eco initiatives

We are currently looking for articles on these specific topics:

Why do we want you to blog for us?
Because we believe that your passion for all things eco will inspire others to do more good too. We also want you to share your words with other people, helping en-form to reach more people.
Who is our audience?
We want to connect with anyone who is interested in making better choices that benefit the environment, and with the people who influence those who are interested in environmental matters. The majority of our audience is local, and includes homeowners, business owners, schools, children, parents, gardeners, conservationists, keen recyclers, thrifty upcyclers, DIYers… the list is practically endless.
What do we want our blog to do?
Inspire and educate! Many of the people we want to reach out to are people just starting their eco-journey, so we want to be able to offer accessible and implementable ideas, lots of encouragement, and useful information. We are also writing for those who have started their journey and looking to progress by expanding their eco-awareness and getting involved with local eco events.
What do we NOT want our blog to do?
We do not want our blog to be a platform for opinionated rhetoric. We do not want to name, shame, or make anyone feel like they are not doing enough. Think positivity and promote all that is good.
The edits we might make
Please note that en-form reserves the right to edit or not to publish articles if we feel them to be inappropriate or irrelevant or for any other reason.
Include Your Bio!
Please provide your author details so we can credit you for the article. Feel free to provide or contact details, and social media and website links, to be printed at the end of the article.
A VERY IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT DUPLICATE CONTENT:
WE ONLY ACCEPT UNIQUE CONTENT! Please do not cut and paste someone else’s words and use them in a blog unless it is a short quote or extract. Copying online content and using it on another website can cause a very serious issue with online performance, and can even get a website removed from search engine results. As such, make sure ALL CONTENT IS UNIQUE, and where you have copied information that it is brief and a source is cited at the end of the blog. It isn’t just a matter of plagiarism, it is very important for the good health of the en-form website.
