Blog Post Submission Guidelines
Are you interested in writing about environmental education (EE)? We are always interested in reading new and engaging voices in EE!
eePRO is devoted to sharing the latest pedagogy and practices in environmental education. With that said, we realize that the field of EE is multi-faceted, and we are open to innovative approaches and intersectional perspectives.
If the blog you have in mind is related to a specific event or resource, the post should add something more than what would normally go in a content post. For example, writing a post that merely shares an event that is going to happen should most likely be added as an eePRO Post. But a story about a personal experience (whether yours or someone else’s) at NAAEE’s annual conference or another EE-related event, for example, can be a blog post.
What we look for:
- Word count: Approximately 400–900
- Photos/Images: You must have the rights to any photos or images you use.
- Style: Our blog posts cover a range of topics, but we are always ensuring that posts write about topics and audiences with respect.
- Content: eePRO is devoted to sharing the latest pedagogy and practices in environmental education, but we are open to innovative approaches and intersectional perspectives.
- Link resources in the body of text or add cited sources at the end of your post.
- We accept simultaneous submissions. Please provide linkbacks to the original post.
A note about sharing images:
You do not need to add images to your posts, but you may do so if you wish. If you share any photos, please include a caption and photo credit.
By sharing images on eePRO, you are confirming that you have the rights to do so. This includes ensuring you have permission from the people visible in any photos you share of them. If you are sharing images on behalf of your organization, use images approved for your content promotional purposes.
Our editorial process:
Once your blog post lands in our inbox, our Digital Community Coordinator will lightly edit it for spelling, grammar, and clarity. Your post may then be approved for publishing or shared with NAAEE’s Communications Team for another review. We will reach out to you to confirm any significant changes before publishing.
Once your post is approved, NAAEE staff or an eePRO Group Moderator will add a draft to eePRO.
When we’re adding a blog post to eePRO, we may select parts of your text to highlight as quotes. We may also break up large paragraphs, insert headings, and add images. These formatting changes help with readability.
We will tag your post to any relevant eePRO Groups. Your post will show up in that group’s activity feed and may also be featured on the group’s bulletin board. Your post may also be tagged to eeNEWS.
Once your post is edited, formatted, and tagged to relevant eePRO Groups, we will publish it and send you a confirmation email.
