You are also free to pitch your own “top 10” story idea. You don’t have to be a writer or have a writing background, but you do have to have be an educator with background/experience in whatever topic you are writing about, and if you are recommending any kinds of apps or resources, you must have had experience using them (and no connection to the companies who make them).
Send your story idea and information about yourself to Laura Devaney at firstname.lastname@example.org. If your idea is chosen, you’ll be assigned the story and you’ll get small honorarium ($50) upon publication.
