Guidelines for submitting articles and tips to getting published
SO YOU HAVE AN IDEA YOU WANT TO SHARE WITH OUR READERS? READ ON TO LEARN HOW TO SUBMIT ARTICLES FOR CONSIDERATION AND WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR IN SUBMISSIONS.
Compendia accepts limited outside contributions from industry professionals.
The process is selective, however, and all articles are subject to editing. Headlines and subheads are subject to change, content may be edited for style or substance, links may be added for context, and art will be added at the discretion of our publisher. Articles may or may not be promoted across our family of sites, on our homepage, in our newsletters, and via our social feeds but we will be sure to tag you when it is shared.
Please note that article submissions are currently reviewed approximately once a week.
The following guidelines may help increase your chances that your article is accepted for publication:
Articles submitted for consideration should be of interest to readers of Compendia, have a tone that is appropriate for Compendia and be written by a person, not a PR department. We like articles and pieces of writing that introduce new ideas and advance conversation around topics and trends that engage our readers—think op-ed rather than marketing. We appreciate lively, polished writing that balances research or news with fun and memorable anecdotes or examples that help illustrate your point of view.
While we encourage drawing from your own experiences in business to support your ideas, over-the-top self promotion of yourself or your company lessens the chance we will publish your article.
Most articles are typically around 750–900 words.
We do not pay for contributed stories, but if they're engaging to read and useful to our audience, we will energetically promote them, just like any other story that runs on our site.
We request that contributed articles remain exclusive to our site for at least 24 hours, after which time they may be reprinted in part or full on other sites, with a link back to the original article.
To repurpose or use our content articles for business purposes, please contact us. We ask that none of our content be shared without our permission. Occasionally, we will syndicate an article that has already run on another website, but we would rather publish original and exclusive content.
Compendia prefers submissions from contributors who are leaders in and knowledgeable about the types of industries and topics the publication regularly covers. Contributed stories that touch on topics like productivity, creativity, career development, culture, strategy, and innovation are particularly popular with our readers, especially if there is a salient takeaway for other business professionals.
Please send completed articles to Editor Lynn Armstrong at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Turnaround is usually no more than five business days. If you feel your email has not been received, please check back in once; after that, it's safe to assume that it was not the right fit for Compendia.
Contributed articles run online only.
Good luck and enjoy writing your next masterpiece!
Lynn Armstrong, Publisher, Compendia
