Writing and Submission Guidelines

When developing your work, think of your piece as “spark notes” for college life.

  • At least 800 words is great for articles, but feel free to write as extensively as you please.
  • Please PROOFREAD. Minor changes may be made to your piece for quality or clarity purposes. The integrity of your article will remain intact. Changing missed spelling errors or grammar issues is not meant to offend you, but improve the post.
  • Attach images you want to include with your post with the appropriate attribution and credits included. People like to see what we’re talking about, so using at least one photo is encouraged.
  • When including quotes, studies, facts, or stats, please include a SOURCE so the reader knows that this is valid information.
  • Feel free to bounce article ideas back and forth with us!
