Write for Raising Nerd


Interested in seeing your work appear on Raising Nerd? Write for us!

We’re looking for fellow Nerds to write Nerdy articles that will inspire the next generation of scientists, engineers and creative who will someday help save the world. So, send us your ideas because we’d love to work with other Nerds!

Please agree to licensing terms below, and e-mail your submission ideas to Hello@RaisingNerd.com.

Some other important notes:

  • Include a 2-3 sentence bio with your submission idea (social channels and blog hyperlinked, please!)
  • Paste your post directly in the body of your e-mail. If a post has previously run, please also include the link to where it appears online.
  • Please do not double space after periods or between paragraphs.
  • If you are submitting a photo(s), it should be high resolution and landscape size (horizontal). Please send the original photograph rather than Instagram image.
  • We are always in search of highly relatable and general humor material. Lists and short essays (under 900 words) seem to work best, while personal anecdotes or specific personal stories do not.
  • We do not pay for submissions, original or repubs. We know; it sucks, we’re sorry!

Due to the high number of submissions we receive, you will hear from us within one week if we are able to run your post. If you do not hear from us within that time frame, please feel free to submit elsewhere.

Nerd on!
