Write for Illinois ASCD's Journal
Would you like to write for our publication? We are looking for high-quality, original submissions that shed light on our monthly themes. We will also consider non-theme-related articles for Special Topics.
Who Reads—and Writes for
Our Journal has a distinctive niche within the educational world in Illinois. Our readers are educators from all levels, PreK–12, and from many different disciplines and job positions—teachers, principals, superintendents, professors of education, and other leaders in education.
Whereas other publications are primarily written by journalists or by researchers, our quarterly journal is primarily written by educators for educators. With a circulation of almost 4,000 and rapidly increasing, our journal has great reach and influence among educators within Illinois. Illinois ASCD is committed to diversity. We encourage writers from diverse backgrounds to submit articles.
How to Write for our Quarterly Journal
We look for conversational, as well as research-based articles (1,000-1,500 words) that are insightful and helpful to K–12 educators. Articles should contain fresh information, and give practical guidance that readers can use to improve practice. Examples from classroom experience are appreciated. Research-based articles are highly favored for publication.

These are created and designed along the way as topics are selected according to the present need.
