Private Matters Today considers submissions of private mortgage-related articles that are educational (no references to companies, their employees or their proprietary products), well-written and timely. All article submissions are subject to editorial review for quality, relevance and compliance with our editorial guidelines.
Pieces submitted to Private Matters Today appear in various ways:

• Illustrated articles: Combined with an illustration, series of illustrations or photomontage, these articles are published on multiple pages. Private Matters Today selects articles for illustration based on their relevance, timeliness and quality.
Private Matters Today provides — and reserves the rights to — all the illustrations and photos related to published articles.
