Write for Us: We’re always looking for new authors. If you’ve got an idea, we want to hear about it. But you don’t need to wait for an idea that will redefine web design. Just aim to bring readers a fresh perspective on a topic that’s keep you up awake at night.
What we’re looking for
You may submit a rough draft, a partial draft, or a short pitch (a paragraph or two summarizing your argument and why it matters to our readers) paired with an outline. The more complete your submission is, the better feedback we can give you. Keep in mind that we only accept original content—we do not publish anything that’s been published elsewhere (including on your blog).
Please don’t send us press releases or sales pitches. They make us feel sad inside.
Before you submit, look at our posts for insight into structuring and formatting your piece, and make sure your submission:
- Has offers a clear argument—not just a list of tips and tricks.
- Has a voice. Be bold, interesting, and human.
- Is written for an audience.
- Is supported with convincing arguments, not just opinions. Fact-check, and cite sources where appropriate.
What we publish
We publish articles of anywhere between 600–2,500 words, depending on subject complexity. 1,500 words is about average. Articles often run with a custom illustration.
How to submit (and what happens next)
Email us your submission. We prefer google documents so that editors can easily provide feedback and guidance directly within your draft. You may also send us a plaintext file. If we accept your article, an editor will work closely with you on things like organization, argumentation, and style. We’ll schedule you for publication as soon as revisions are complete. We can’t give you a specific publication date until the article is almost ready to go live.
