techdirections - linking education to careers

Write for Us!

techdirections looking for articles about what is going on in the career-technical and STEM education fields, ideas teachers can use in the classroom, and anything that can help prepare students for a career. Articles should be approximately 1,000-2,000 words in length and should be accompanied by photos and/or drawings, if appropriate. When submitting, please send additional materials as attachments rather than embedding them in the article. Also, we are looking for quality photos for cover use. They should be high-resolution and of a vertical orientation.

If you have an idea you want to pitch to make sure it would be a good fit, either send Vanessa an email,, or give her a call, 734-975-2800 x306.

The Details

Articles should be 1,000 - 2,000 words in length and should be sent to:

Graphics: Photos, drawings, charts/graphs, and other illustrations add life and interest to an idea and enhance the appearance of an article. Photos of students and teachers actively engaged in activities related to the article are desired--but avoid a “posed” look. Please include photo captions and photo credit. Include these items as attachments with your article.

Photos: Please submit high-res photos as attachments with your article. If you would like a photo to be considered for the cover, please make sure it is of a vertical orientation.

Project articles: Include drawings of projects that require construction. Please include a close-up photo of the completed project.

Other submissions: We pay $25 for cartoons, brain teasers, and crossword and other kinds of puzzles related to the field.

Please do not submit text, photographs, drawings, or other items that are taken from the internet, books, magazines, or other copyrighted sources without first securing specific permission.
