Be a Guest Author on Medium

Want to write blog posts or articles, get your voice and message out there, but feel like you don't have an existing audience? The Practical Service Design publication on Medium is here to help give you a platform!

What is a publication?

A publication is a wrapper around articles, like a magazine. From Medium's definition of a publication:

Publications on Medium bring individual voices together around a common theme and shared purpose. Communities and organizations (or individuals) can tell their stories from one central point of distribution, combining the diverse efforts of many unique voices for greater impact on Medium’s reader network.

Practical Service Design maintains and promotes the publication, adds content, helps coach, edit, and encourage writers who want the extra boost. With over 3,300 followers, your content is sure to get some great exposure.

(We are working on a set of guidelines and prompts to help streamline the process that will be posted here soon!) 

About your content and Copyright

Rest assured, when you post, you are posting to your own Medium account and maintain exclusive rights and ownership of your content and can remove it from our publication any time you want. We will never ask for rights or license from you to own any or all of your content. From the Medium terms of service:

"...Stories remain, however, the property of their respective authors, unless otherwise explicitly assigned in licensing, or agreed upon with the publication owners or editors where that story appears."

I'm ready, I am!
