Times 10 Publications Blog Submission Guidelines
We're very pleased that you are interested in submitting a guest blog post for the Times 10 Publications Blog. Please read the submission guidelines below carefully if you are ready to get started.
What We Seek
Times 10 is all about problem-solving. We provide practical solutions that busy educators can read today and use tomorrow. Blog posts should present clearly-defined problems and step-by-step solutions for the problem—preferably, strategies that you or someone you know have implemented in a school or classroom.
Here are two excellent examples:

- Personal stories on challenges you have faced as a teacher or school leader and how you overcame them.
- Posts on systemic changes that could impact teaching and learning on a global scale. (This kind of post should provide unique experiences and be a bit longer—up to 2,000 words)
What We Don't Publish:
- Less than 600 words in length
- Term or grad-school papers
- Research reviews or reports

Style and Acceptance
Our style is more conversational and less professorial. We don't want a ton of research or citations. We dislike platitudes, jargon, and 25-cent words.
We also do not accept posts that have been previously published, in print or online.
Times 10 Publications accepts or rejects posts based on our editorial needs. We do not offer payment for posts.
