We welcome contributors to share commentary and personal narratives with our readers.

On behalf of our audience, though, we are a bit choosy. Below are our editorial guidelines:

Your piece should be a fresh, thoughtful commentary or narrative on issues relevant to our core coverage areas, written by someone who has unique expertise or experience. It should not be a marketing or product pitch.

Examples of great pieces include:

Your draft should include relevant links to topics, research and other specific items that you’re discussing.

In addition, please include a brief bio, links to your work (Twitter, LinkedIn, personal blog, etc.) along with a thumbnail picture of yourself.

Due to the volume of submissions we receive, we are not able to respond to every pitch. An editor will contact you if EdSurge is interested in considering your draft.

What could lead us to decline your piece:

  • Not enough of a fresh perspective or information
  • Lack of clarity
  • Lack of substance or evidence for the points that you make
  • Marketing pitches for companies, products or services that you provide as a consultant
  • Excessive vitriol or pandering

Finally, let us know if you’re receiving any perks or compensation for organizations that you’re writing about or that are related to the subject that you’re describing. We try to steer clear of conflicts of interest or subtle bias. The name of the game is to be upfront with our readers about anything that might have a significant influence on your opinions.

If we accept your submission, we will assign an editor to work with you. We will also send you a writer’s agreement that must be signed before the piece is published. EdSurge retains final editorial control over all material published on our website.

EdSurge reserves the right to change our submission policies and practices at any time.

Please send your proposed article or a summary of it to: tips@edsurge.com.
