We are always on the lookout for guest writers who can easily communicate difficult science to the general public. We’d like to hear about your creative approaches to engaging our readers and spreading science. You are not, however, required to wait for a divinely inspired topic. Simple words, you just provide readers with a fresh perspective on a topic that is keeping them awake at night.
Let's be honest
Writing for us takes time and effort. We want your article to be the best it can be, and we’ll do everything we can to help you get there. Once accepted, you’ll receive detailed feedback from a member of our designated team and will work closely with an editor on any modifications.
What we’re looking for
You may submit a rough draught, a partial draught, or a short pitch with an outline (a paragraph or two summarising your argument and why it is important to our readers). If your submission is more detailed, we will be able to provide better feedback. Please keep in mind that we only accept original content and will not publish anything that has been previously published elsewhere (including on your website).
Please, no press releases or sales pitches. They make us sad on the inside. Instead, if the product or service has been proven to work as advertised and fits within the theme of this platform, they can be included as a sponsored post.
What we publish
We publish articles ranging in length from 600 to 2,500 words, depending on the subject matter. 1,500 words is considered average. Custom illustrations are frequently used in articles. Articles can be casual in tone and content, which is ideal for less-intensive tutorials and posts, or they can be rigorously structured and edited. All should be well-thought-out explorations of current and cutting-edge web industry topics.
How to submit you draft
Please send us an email with your submission. We prefer Google document submissions so that editors can provide feedback and direction directly within your draft. You can also send us plaintext, Markdown, or an HTML link. (Please do not send a ZIP file of assets unless requested by an editor.)
Here's what happens after you press the Send button:
- Your submission will be reviewed by an editor to see if it is a good fit.
- The editor will compile the team’s feedback and provide you with notes.
Send us your revised version once you’ve addressed our suggestions.
- The team will reconvene and let you know if we want to accept it.
- If your article is accepted, an editor will work closely with you on issues such as organisation, argumentation, and style.
- We’ll schedule your publication as soon as your revisions are finished. We can’t give you a specific publication date until the article is nearly finished.
- You can send us email a [email protected]
