Write for Link

At Link, we’re striving to bring some of the things that make HighEdWeb special into our pages: great content, cooked up by incredibly knowledgeable folks, delivered with a heaping dollop of humor.

Link covers topics ranging from Applications and Standards to Social Media to Design to Programming, so whether you’re a web developer, social media expert, marketing manager or something in between, you have expertise that’s valuable to the HighEdWeb community.

If you’d like to contribute to Link — and we hope you do — please take a moment to learn what we love and what disgruntles us.

We publish content—articles, videos, audio, etc.—on a variety of topics, including applications and standards (think: technical propeller hats), design, management, marketing and social media.

While we don’t publish content that’s appeared in other journals, if your submission is accepted, we welcome cross-posting your submission on a personal blog after it’s been published on Link.

In most cases, we respond to your submissions within four weeks; please feel free to follow up with us if you haven’t heard from us after that time.

We love

  • The Active Voice
  • Multiple sources used to strengthen an article’s premise and point of view
  • Engaging, articulate writing
  • Humor and wit
  • Articles that are less than 1,000 words long (doesn’t mean we won’t publish longer ones but brevity is the soul of wit, and all that.)
  • A keen understanding of the HighEdWeb audience
  • New ideas and formats: break outside of the box!

We are disgruntled by

  • The Passive Voice
  • Too many conjunctions
  • Rip-offs
  • Overly technical language (except for “propeller hat” articles)

Are you an design star? An editrix? Great! We’re always looking for behind-the-scenes assistance on our design and editorial teams. Drop us a line at link@highedweb.org and let us know where you’d like to pitch in. Including your resume and/or your LinkedIn profile wouldn’t hurt, either.
