Types of Articles

Helinika accepts original articles that have not been submitted in any type of publication in the past and will not be submitted in the future, unless the writer and the media owner agree upon that. Opinion pieces and expert articles are submitted voluntarily; no monetary requests can be made. The guest writers maintain ownership of their content. They may link their website or LinkedIn profile to their author’s bio and are encouraged to include their work in their portfolio.

Opinion pieces: Share your thoughts on topics related to the Greek language, history, and culture. All opinion pieces should include personal experiences and the subjective perspective of the writer. At the same time, facts, stats, and scientific data must be linked as sources, whenever objective statements are made.

Examples: “How moving to Greece changed my life“, “Why I left the city to live in the Greek countryside“, “Learning Greek was the worst decision I’ve ever made. And the best.”.

Opinion pieces should follow the provided writing guidelines. Submitted articles can only be accepted by approved guest writers. For more information, read the section “Become a Guest Writer“.

Expert articles: Are you a student/graduate/academic? You can publish articles related to your expertise, as long as they are relevant to the medium’s topics. Preferred degrees: archaeology, history, anthropology, linguistics, classical studies, folklore studies, journalism, teaching, literature.

All articles by experts should include linked sources from credible websites, such as scientific articles or papers and archives from libraries and Universities. Expert articles should not be limited to listing well-known facts. They should provide in-depth knowledge and a unique perspective on the given subject.
