We’re always looking for new authors. If you have an idea that will challenge our readers and move the industry forward, we want to hear about it. But you don’t need to wait for an idea that will redefine web design. Just aim to bring readers a fresh perspective on a topic that’s keeping you up at night.

Writing for ALA takes work. We want your article to be at its best and we push you to get there. Once accepted, you will receive extensive feedback from our team and you will 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 will learn a lot in the process—about communicating your ideas and about writing.

What we’re looking for

You can send an unfinished draft, a draft that is partially completed, or a brief presentation (a one or two paragraphs that summarizes your argument and the reasons why it is important to our readers) along with an outline. The more comprehensive your writing is, the more feedback we’ll be able to provide you with. Remember that we only publish original content. We will not publish anything that has previously been published elsewhere (including the blog you’re writing on).

Please do not send us sales or press releases. They make us feel depressed inside.
