Write for us

If you have a story to share—it might be something you’ve discovered that really gets your students excited about learning; maybe an enriching professional learning experience; a strategy that with trial and error you’ve finally got to work in the classroom; or your reaction to a topical issue or even a highlight from your own or a colleague’s career—you’re in the right place.

Whatever it is, we’d love to hear about it and welcome pitches on all education-related issues, academic subjects and all year levels from K-12.

OUR EDITORIAL PROCESS

Our editorial team will discuss your pitch, and if it’s accepted, we’ll ask you to forward a draft of your post. Whilst we don’t have strict word-count restrictions, contributions up to 1000 words are preferred.

All submissions to EducationHQ are subject to our Terms of Use.

We do our best to respond to all proposals within two to three weeks. If your first pitch is not accepted, we hope you’ll try again with other ideas.

Sharing ideas and best practice with your colleagues might be second nature, but pitching a story or article idea to the media may be new for you.

If you’ve never published an article before, or are wondering whether your idea is a good fit for EducationHQ’s audience, take a look at these recent contributions from our community:
