We’re always looking for new authors. If you’ve got an idea that will challenge our readers and move humanity forward, we want to hear about it. But you don’t need to wait for an idea, just aim to bring readers a fresh perspective on a topic that’s keeping you up at night.
We’ll be honest, though: writing for Ekitidefender takes work. We want your article to be at its best, and we’ll push you to get there. Once accepted, you’ll get extensive feedback from our team, and you’ll work closely with an editor on revisions.
It’s also rewarding. Thousands of your peers (and potential employers, clients, or publishers) will read your work, and you’ll also learn a lot in the process—about communicating your ideas, about writing, and even about the topic you thought you already knew so well when you started.
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 Keep in mind that we only accept original content—we do not publish anything that’s been published elsewhere (including on your blog).
What we publish
We publish three types of content:
- Features (1,500–2,500 words). Meets most rigorous content and editorial criteria; runs with a custom illustration.
- Articles (600–1,500 words). More casual in tone and content. Great for less-intensive tutorials and posts.
- Mini-articles (500–600 words). Short and sweet.
All should be well-considered explorations of current and cutting-edge topics.
