Health Justice CT Contributor Guidelines

Things to Remember When Writing:

  • Have a creative title.
  • Have an introduction that attracts interest and makes the reader want to read further.  You want to state the purpose in the beginning.
  • Use headings, subheadings, bold font for key sentences and bulleted lists so it is easy to read.
  • Word count:  400 – 800 words. If it’s longer than 800 words then it will need to have subheadings.
  • Write in a style that is conversational.
  • Offer links that support your argument or data points. By contributing content / blog posts, the author is solely responsible for  the accuracy of their submission including the accuracy in citation.
  • Have a conclusion. Sometimes a call to action or pose a question that encourages the readers to comment, reflect and engage.
  • Have an author bio at the end. Two sentences max.  Here’s an example:  “C. Brandon Ogbunu, Ph.D. is a New York City native, completed his M.Phil and Ph.D at Yale University in Microbiology. Academic, pugilist and writer. Connect with Brandon on twitter. Learn more about Brandon here.”
  • Have a head shot image to send.
  • Health Justice CT does not accept profanity, affiliate links, and spam in a blog post.
