Contribute with Us

Hello, fellow aspiring writers! We’re on a constant lookout for fresh voices to become part of our community. If you’ve got an idea that can engage and inspire our readers while contributing to the growth of our industry, we invite you to share it with us. You don’t have to wait for a groundbreaking concept; just offer a unique perspective on a topic that sets your passion ablaze.

However, it’s essential to be upfront about our expectations. Joining our team at Dream News comes with a requirement for dedication and effort. We’re dedicated to helping you produce your best work, and we’ll push you to meet our high standards. Once your submission is accepted, you’ll receive comprehensive feedback from our team and collaborate closely with an editor for revisions.

Though the journey may be demanding, it’s also immensely rewarding. Your work will reach thousands of peers, potential employers, clients, or publishers, providing you with valuable exposure. Moreover, you’ll enhance your skills in effective communication and writing, gaining a deeper understanding of your chosen subject matter.

Submission Criteria

Feel free to submit a rough draft, a partial draft, or a concise pitch (a paragraph summarizing your argument and its relevance to our readers), along with an outline. The more detailed your submission, the more insightful feedback we can offer.

Please keep in mind that we exclusively accept original content; we do not publish material that has been previously featured elsewhere, including personal blogs.

Before submitting, acquaint yourself with our style guide and recent articles to understand the structure and formatting we require. Ensure that your submission:

  1. Presents a clear thesis and argument, avoiding a mere list of tips.
  2. Exhibits a distinctive voice that is bold, captivating, and relatable.
  3. Targets an audience of designers, developers, content strategists, information architects, or similar professionals.
  4. Supports arguments with facts, not just personal opinions. We encourage fact-checking and proper citation.
  5. Adheres to our style guide.

For insights into the writing process, please refer to “Writing is Thinking” and explore “So You Want to Write an Article?” to avoid common submission pitfalls.

What We Publish

Our articles typically range from 600 to 2,500 words, depending on the complexity of the subject, with an average length of around 1,500 words. Custom illustrations often accompany articles, and the tone can vary from casual to rigorously structured and edited. Nevertheless, all submissions should delve deeply into current and cutting-edge topics within the web industry.

How to Submit

To submit your work, please use the following email address: dreamnewsuk@gmail.com. We prefer Google documents for easier feedback, but plaintext, Markdown, or HTML formats are also acceptable (please avoid sending ZIP files unless specifically requested). Here’s an overview of our submission process:

  1. An editor will review your submission to assess its potential fit, followed by a team discussion held once a week.
  2. The editor will gather feedback and provide notes. While initial acceptance is uncommon, we will express our interest if we find your work suitable.
  3. Address our comments and send the revised draft. The team will review it again and confirm acceptance.
  4. If your article is accepted, an editor will collaborate with you on organization, argumentation, and style.
  5. Your publication will be scheduled once revisions are complete, with a specific publication date provided as we approach the go-live date.

We’re eagerly awaiting your submissions!

Thank you.
