We welcome article queries and submissions. The best way to submit them is via e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or by clicking here.
BEWARE: We only accept articles from actual (or former) teachers about topics dealing with issues in the classroom. We will not run articles on “off topic” articles.
If you want to submit a story about being an educator for our “From the Front Lines” series, please click here to submit your story!
We are looking for teachers! If you’ve ever wished to build your brand and tell others what’s worked (and failed) in your classroom, and you have some writing skills to back it up, then we’d love to hear from you.
If you submit your story please email us with the suggestions for the article.
Before you submit, please spend some time familiarizing yourself with the style and tone of our site. Also, get a sense of what we publish. Then send a short pitch with an appropriate idea. We would love for you to send us an educational resume and also tell us a little bit about yourself — your experience and background as a writer and qualifications for writing a particular story. We are particularly interested in hearing from teachers.
We do our best to respond to all inquiries, but be aware that we’ve got a small staff and are sometimes inundated. If you have not heard back from us after three weeks, please assume that we will not be able to use your idea or submission.
IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN SUBMITTING, PLEASE CLICK HERE. Someone will get into contact with you within 24 hours.
Frequently Asked Questions
1.Do you work with new writers?
Yes. Especially if they are educators.
2.What type of content are you looking for?
Users depend on our site for answers to their most pressing issues in education, but also for ideas that make the classroom fun. We cover topics across the parental spectrum—from how to make homemade finger-paint, to what parents should know about Obama’s education plan, to navigating the parent-teacher conference. The site is comprised of educational and lifestyle content, of interest to parents of preschool-grade 12 children. Although the topics change, the editorial areas remain the same:
3.Homepage features: Short, often news-driven topics. 600-800 words. (Previous examples: “Obama on Education”, “Is Autism on the Rise?”, “Raising a Sensitive Child”, “Kindergarten Readiness”, “Are Learning Styles a Myth?”)
4.Grade-Based Content: Education.com has a portal for each grade, meant to be a Cliff Notes of sorts for parents. Each portal features articles in 3 main areas: School and Academics (ex. “First Grade Reading: What Happen”), Social and Emotional (e. “Social Graces: What to Expect in First Grade”), and Milestones and Development (ex. “How a First Grader Thinks”).
We publish a lot of content. We’re always looking for freelancers with great ideas, honed writing, and consistent dependability. Look at our site and make sure you have a sense of our style and tone. Then submit!
