Write For Us

Yes, you. We’re always trying to find new authors. If you’ve got a thought which will challenge our readers and move our industry forward, we would like to listen to about it. But you don’t got to await a thought which will redefine web design. Just aim to bring readers a fresh perspective on a subject that’s keeping you up in the dark .

We’ll be honest, though: writing for ALA takes work. we would like your article to be at its best, and we’ll push you to urge 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 tons within the process—about communicating your ideas, about writing, and even about the subject you thought you already knew so well once you started.

What we’re trying to find

You may submit a rough draft, a partial draft, or a brief pitch (a paragraph or two summarizing your argument and why it matters to our readers) paired with an overview . The more complete your submission is, the higher feedback we will offer you . confine mind that we only accept original content—we don't publish anything that’s been published elsewhere (including on your blog).

Please don’t send us press releases or sales pitches. they create us feel sad inside.

Before you submit, check out our style guide and up to date articles for insight into structuring and formatting your piece, and confirm your submission:

  • Has a thesis and offers a transparent argument—not just an inventory of tips and tricks.
  • Has a voice. Be bold, interesting, and human.
  • Is written for an audience of designers, developers, content strategists, information architects, or similar.
  • Is supported with convincing arguments, not just opinions. Fact-check, and cite sources where appropriate.

For some wise words on the writing process, see “Writing is Thinking”. you ought to also inspect “So you would like to write down an Article?” to find out about common pitfalls we see in submissions and the way you'll avoid them.

What we publish

We publish articles of anywhere between 600–2,500 words, counting on subject complexity. 1,500 words is about average. Articles often run with a custom illustration. Articles could also be casual in tone and content—great for less-intensive tutorials and posts—or rigorously structured and edited. All should be well-considered explorations of current and cutting-edge topics within the web industry.

Submit Your Article

Email us your submission. We prefer submissions as Google documents in order that editors can easily provide feedback and guidance directly within your draft. you'll also send us a plaintext file, a Markdown file, or a link to an HTML document.
