Some things to keep in mind when writing for All Access:

  • Length:
    We take short posts of 150-350 words, as well as longer op-eds of 500 to 700 words. In general, use the fewest words possible to make your point convincingly.
  • Timeliness:
    We’re more likely to publish your piece if it relates to a news event or current, relevant issue.
  • Style:
    Stick to one main point and use short words and simple, declarative sentences. Keep paragraphs short. Take a conversational tone and avoid technical terms and jargon. Use humor where appropriate.
  • Headline
    Please include a short, punchy and provocative suggested headline with your submission.
  • Visuals
    We love photos, videos, and infographics. Please include visuals with your submission, where appropriate.
  • Attribution and Links
    Accuracy is critical. Link to relevant sites and/or documents you reference, and make sure you attribute anything you didn’t write yourself.
  • Author informationPlease include a short bio of a few sentences at the bottom of your post, and a headshot (at least 250 px by 250 px with a resolution of 72 dpi).
  • Editing
