Smashing Magazine’s primary goal is to deliver quality material for designers and Web developers all around the globe. Writing takes time. Closely examining the latest developments and tools throughout the Web takes its time as well. Last but not least, preparing articles for publishing takes time. We welcome your participation and help to provide our readers with solid articles and useful insights!
You. However, you need to know exactly what you are talking about and be certain that you can write well; possessing solid writing skills is a must. If this is the case, please follow the following guidelines:
It’s very important for us that you are really interested in the topics you’re willing to write about. A single article is excellent, but a long-term cooperation is even better!
An article doesn’t have to be extremely long; what is important is that you have something to say or to share. For example, our readers are interested in practical insights and valuable tips learned from experience. You can share your ideas, design approaches and techniques or just describe your design process. We are aiming at exciting, creative articles that also cover recent developments in the industry. Finally, we could also use some help in creating unique, carefully prepared round-ups and showcases.
All of our authors get paid. The amount of money depends on the length of the article and its quality. Before your articles go live, we make sure that both sides agree upon the publishing and payment conditions. You can also put a link to your website in the “About the author”-section in the article.
Writing for Smashing Magazine isn’t easy. We expect you to be a professional who knows exactly what to write about and is prepared to invest time into a meaningful, well-researched article.
