Calling all Beyonces. We’re looking for writers + article submissions!


Whether you are about to graduate from college or are on the brink of turning 30, all 20-somethings are welcome to write for Forever Twenty Somethings (FTS).


FTS is a fantastic community of writers, editors, and readers who help each other navigate the hard world that is your 20s.

We are a great place to have your work edited and published to help you become a better writer, get your byline out there, and build your resume. Our writers have been featured on The Huffington Post, Cosmopolitan, Elite Daily, Seventeen, Forbes, Thought Catalog, The Financial Diet, and more.

We are open to any and all article ideas and encourage writers to use FTS as an outlet to write about whatever you’re interested in whenever you’re inspired. For times you can’t think of anything to write, we also provide tons of article ideas and prompts on a weekly basis to help you fight off writer’s block.

Contributors can write personal essays, lists, news stories, opinion pieces, etc about whatever you want. It’s totally up to you.

We write for people who have just graduated college all the way to those panicking about turning 30. The voice of FTS is witty and real. Each article we publish is tied to being in your 20s somehow (or at least be written for people who are ‘adulting’). Writers should try to put their own personal experiences/opinions into articles if possible to make them relatable.

Before you apply, please know that everyone who writes for Forever Twenty Somethings is a volunteer and therefore, unpaid. However, there are opportunities for paid work if you are interested in pitching/writing/producing branded content.
