Publish with us!

Our blog examines critical issues around breakthrough school design.

We welcome your submission!


We publish pieces in the range of 700-1200 words that examine at least 1 of the 13 questions from our shared Learning Agenda or one of the Eight Great Leaps.  We also welcome pieces that highlight work you and/or your organization are doing related to breakthrough school design. The piece should contain a brief summary of your idea (no more than 100 words). Final drafts should be submitted in the form of a Google doc.


Transcend is interested in publishing pieces that are creative, respectful, thought provoking, and accessible to an interdisciplinary audience of thoughtful educators. The first paragraph should get right to the point. Subsequent paragraphs should be brief and organized by sharp topic sentences. Sentences should be short and active. If you use names, dates, and places in your piece, double-check all facts and spelling. If you cite research, include the title, author, and source in the body of your article. No footnotes. Use one space between sentences. Articles will be edited for length, grammar, and style. Authors will be able to see and discuss their work before publication. 


Authors should submit a personal photo and brief bio to accompany their article (no more than 75 words). Bios can include the author’s position, city, organization, and connection to the region. We are happy to include links to author’s blogs, books, twitter, linkedin, or affiliate organizations.


While we are open to making exceptions, we normally reserve all rights to all original work that we have published for one year, in all media. No full-text reproductions of an article may appear online, in print, or in any other media without the written permission of the editor. Individuals who would like to republish an article elsewhere should send their brief request to the Transcend editor. We may consider cross-publication agreements; those details will be worked out on a case-by-case basis. We are not obligated to publish any article, including articles we have commissioned.
