Guest Post Instructions

What We Look For in a Guest Post

Successful guest contributions are comprehensive, data-driven, and interesting posts that teach our readers something new. 

Subjects we focus on include -- but are not limited to -- government policy and management, performance improvement, policy development, and leadership.

We look for a few things in everything piece we publish:

  • Be well-written and original.
  • Have a logical structure and flow.
  • Use subheadings and bullets/lists, where appropriate, to make it easy for the reader to consume the information.
  • Include a strong, compelling introduction and a conclusion that wraps up the article or provides a call to action.
  • Attribute all data, quotes, and referenced content by hyperlinking to the original source.
  • Be between 500 and 1,500 words; however, don’t sacrifice depth for brevity.
  • Avoid promotional information. Your company can be an example, but it should be used as the basis for sharing knowledge.

Why Post?

  • Help your fellow PPMRN members improve their performance and deliver results as promised!
  • Tell your story to our 3,000+ member network.
  • All blog articles will be published in our annual network white paper and report. 
  • All authors will receieve 50% conference registration for their entire organization.
  • Include a strong, compelling introduction and a conclusion that wraps up the article or provides a call to action.

 

What We Won't Publish

  • Articles that are clearly part of a link building campaign. Including links to your homepage or contact form in the body of the article is a clear sign of this.
  • Articles that criticize companies or individuals; this is not a site to air grievances.

How to Submit Your Article

Email your completed article (as a Word Doc) to rutgersncpp@gmail.com. Include all images and charts (must be at least 600px wide) as separate attachments.

If your article meets our quality standards and follows our guidelines, we will email you within two weeks to confirm a publication.

While we make every effort to preserve your voice, we will edit your content for grammar and clarity. We may also update it in the future for accuracy and comprehensiveness.
