Encouraging Parent Led Education
You are invited to write for PLANT, Inc. Here's how:
PLANT, Inc. accepts unsolicited submissions for consideration. Pieces that adhere to the guidelines described below are more likely to be published on the site. Submissions must be original work not published elsewhere. The PLANT, Inc. Board reserves the right to not publish submissions at their discretion.
Send submissions as Word documents, along with biographical information (three to five sentences, including your experience in parent led education) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We anticipate the audience for our blog to be a diverse group of parents and or educators in the Albuquerque, NM area seeking to train up their own children or grandchildren as well as parents of a variety of educational choices contemplating a greater role in leading their children's education. Readers may have children who are enrolled in public, private or charter schools as well as homeschools, part-time schools, on-line schools, homeschool co-ops or other educational alternatives. Our goal is to promote greater parental involvement in every child's education. While personal stories of educational failures are welcome and encouraged please be respectful of others who may be experiencing success in similar situations.
All posts must include stories or experiences that occurred in the Albuquerque, NM metro area that includes Bernalillo, Sandoval, Torrance, Valencia County or Santa Fe County or while residing within these areas (i.e. educational travel, or taking classes outside the area while residing in the area).
Post should be less than 1000 words. Telling a story in fewer words that are compelling and powerful is more successful online than lengthy efforts.
Several types of posts are acceptable for this blog:
Posts may be edited for grammar, punctuation, style, formatting, and editorial flow. The blog's editors may return a submission to suggest changes, omissions, and/or additions the editors deem necessary to strengthen or otherwise make the post appropriate for publishing on the PLANT, Inc. blog.
