We are always looking for articles that reflect current trends in literacy instruction and provide easy-to-implement tips for today's educators. We encourage you to e-mail with questions about guidelines or to submit a pitch. If you are submitting an article for consideration, please keep in mind that 900 words is our maximum word count and that we do not use reference lists in the magazine.
