Please submit your blog post in a Google Doc or Word document to your marketing manager and connect@corwin.com. Please also include a short (35-50 word) bio and a photo of yourself that we can publish with your post. If you are current Corwin author, we will already have your bio and photo.

Here are some tips to keep in mind while you are writing your blog post:

  • Blog posts can vary widely in length, anywhere from 500 to 2000 words! The average length of a blog post on Corwin Connect is 1000 words.
  • Keep the tone casual and friendly
  • Your post should be practical in nature, with points that teachers and/or leaders could put into practice immediately—think of a post as micro-PD!
  • Corwin Connect blog posts are not sales pitches—it’s ok to mention your book or services in context, but please do not send us a commercial or advertisement.
  • We will include a picture with your post. If you have no preference, we will choose a stock image from a photo vendor. If you have a specific picture that you would like to use, please send a high resolution version with your blog post. If you do not own the picture and/or the picture features students, please make sure you have permission to use it in a blog post for Corwin.
  • Because Corwin Connect has a small editorial team, we expect your post to be 95% ready to publish at the time that you submit it. Thank you for understanding!

Qualities of great blog titles:

  • They ask a question
  • They solve a problem
  • They include a number (“3 tips…”, “4 Reasons…”, etc.)
  • They use “How to…” or “How Not to…”
  • They are thought-provoking
