We look forward to this knowledge sharing opportunity!
We appreciate that blogging is a creative outlet and support this important practice. That said, to maintain the focus of the CultureForward Blog, we ask that guest blogs have a clear connection with our readers. Guest blogs should contribute to strengthening, unifying and/or connecting greater Cleveland’s arts and culture sector in a manner that aligns with CPAC’s goals. We encourage you to review past CultureForward blogs before submitting your own.
A few guidelines to adhere to in hopes of keeping our readers engaged and our posts consistent:
Guest blogs are credited using the following language at the top of the page:
This blog is used under license and was submitted by volunteer contributor [Name, title and organization]. Learn more about [person or organization] at their website, www…. The opinions represented here are the authors' own and do not necessarily reflect the views of CPAC. CPAC does not endorse the purchase of products or services by its guest bloggers. We thank all writers for volunteering their expertise with us in order to continue to strengthen, unify and connect greater Cleveland’s arts and culture community.
CPAC allows links to pages elsewhere on cultureforward.org and mycreativecompass.org. In addition, guest bloggers can link back to their own website or blog, provided they are directly related to the content submission (1-5 links). Links can also be provided when citing a specific and credible research document, policy issue, or other relevant material. You are responsible for obtaining any required permission to link to a site.
CPAC accepts up to three images or up to one video to be embedded in a blog. Images must be appropriate for public consumption and complement the blog content. If you submit an image or video, please also provide credit information. See “Submissions” under Terms and Conditions of Use. All materials submitted to the blog (the “Guest Blog Materials”) are subject to the Content Ownership section set forth below.
By submitting Guest Blog Material, you hereby grant to CPAC an exclusive, perpetual, worldwide, assignable, royalty free license to use the Guest Blog Material, and to create derivative works of same, in any manner in any medium now known or hereinafter to be developed.
CPAC owns an exclusive license to all Guest Blog Material and all other blog materials on CultureForward.org. We ask writers not to post the blog elsewhere, but that you do provide links and share the blog through your channels. You agree not to post the Guest Blog Material on any other site.
To ensure blog submissions of Guest Blog Material meet the criteria outlined in these Guest Blog Post Guidelines, CPAC staff will review all submissions. We may suggest changes or be unable to accept submissions. If any modifications are needed, we will notify you before we post the blog live, in order to ensure that the integrity of the content remains intact.
