Here’s what you need to know.
We invite you to share your insights, observations, and lessons learned with the community of educators who turn to Curriki for the best in open educational resources, trends, and developments in pre-k-12 education.
The award-winning Curriki Marketing Blog has over 115,000 subscribers and attracts more than 2M monthly visits, and we’re always looking for more brilliant educator contributors to join our ranks.
If you have exceptional writing and/or design skills and would like to share your expertise with a large audience of educators from every country around the world, we’d love to hear from you.
Please take some time to review this entire page — it should answer any question you have about what kind of content we’re looking for and how the submission process works.
What we publish:
Your piece should be a fresh, thoughtful commentary or narrative on issues relevant to the future of learning, written by someone who has unique expertise or experience. It should be a lot more like a high-quality New York Times op-ed or an EdWeek piece —rather than a marketing or product pitch. If a piece reads like marketing material or a press release, we are not likely to accept it.
Successful guest contributions are comprehensive, data-driven, and interesting posts that teach our readers something new about the world of teaching and learning. They cover issues that affect pre-K-12 education and are of interest to a broad range of people such as project-based learning, CTE, blended learning, inquiry-based learning, core subjects, and larger trends in education. Our diverse readership includes school administrators, teachers, professionals, parents, and community leaders.
We also look for a few things in everything we publish:
Original concepts, compelling arguments, and high-quality writing. We will not republish anything that’s been published elsewhere.
- The article reflects the writing style/tone of Curriki’s education blog. We aim to be casual, yet helpful.
- Aim to keep your post to 700-900 words.
- Proper attribution of data, quotations, and outside content referenced in the article.
- No more than one link to your school’s or blog’s website in the body of the post.
Include a brief bio, links to your work (Twitter, LinkedIn, personal blog, etc.) along with a thumbnail picture of yourself.
- The article shares how Curriki resources can be used in the classroom if applicable.
When we receive your draft, we’ll get back to you within two weeks with a thumbs up or down.
What We Won’t Accept
- Anything that’s been covered on our blog before. Please do a search of our site before submitting your articles.
- Anything that may be construed as a link-building scheme.
- Anything that’s too promotional for your company or organization, including linking to a TpT store.
- Anything that’s offensive or inaccurate.
- Anything that’s overly critical of individuals or companies — this is not a site to air grievances.
- Copyright: We respect everyone’s work. In case we find out that you have copied a post from somewhere else, you will get an instant ban and immediate removal of all your blog posts and profile from Curriki. Also, by submitting a post to Curriki you give us copyright ownership of the post.
