Call for onBoarding School Contributors!

boarding-school-blogging.jpgDo you read onBoarding Schools regularly? Do you keep tabs on the boarding school world? Do you have a voice and perspective that you’d like to share with others interested in boarding schools? Would you like to join the team of bloggers at onBoarding Schools? If you believe you have a voice and insight to add to our rich picture of boarding school life, consider joining the onBoarding School team.

onBoarding is looking to add to voices and perspectives to our boarding school coverage. We welcome student, faculty and administrative perspectives.

Contributors must commit to publishing six posts each school year. Publications can come in a variety of forms and media- written articles, video, podcasts, and other forms of multimedia. The requirement is that all publications must contribute to presenting a rich fabric of boarding school life- it’s opportunities and meanings.

Contributors must develop six posts during the academic year- about one post each month while school is in session. Posts should highlight and present the events, happenings and perspectives of their schools- new programs, changes, opportunities, observations about boarding schools and the great things that they do well. Contributing is a part-time, opportunity and is a non-paying gig. But, it presents a great opportunity for you to increase your visibility and help contribute to the onBoarding Schools conversation. First priority is given to AdmissionsQuest member schools.

What you need to have:

* a desire to observe, communicate, and share your boarding school insight

* a role in a boarding school

* strong blog-style writing skills

Please submit the following by Friday, June 5th:

* Your name

* The school with which you’re affiliated

* What you do at the school

* Two sample topics that you would be interested in writing about and one sample of your writing

Send to:

We will confirm your email and then review your submissions. After settling on new contributors, will contact you about developing your first few topics.

Add your voice to the onBoarding Schools conversation!
