TeachersBlogThe Submission Process:

Please fill out the form below to submit your blog post. For more details, ideas and suggestions for blog posts, check out our seeking submission guidelines.

If you have questions or would like help with your idea, story or reflection, please feel free to contact Megan Scribner at teachingwithheartfirepoetry@gmail.com. In creating our three poetry books, she helped hundreds of teachers write about their work and life. She’d be happy to work with you on your blog post.

Megan gives her time to this effort free of charge.  In exchange for editing, posting and promoting your blog post, we ask that you “pay it forward” by writing a thank you letter and sending a gift book – Teaching with Heart – to a special teacher in your life through the Thank You, Teachers Project The cost for this gift package is $30.00.

Once you’ve submitted your blog post, we will notify you as soon as possible if your piece has been accepted. Our editorial board will select submissions that represent a diverse range of perspectives and experiences.  Then we will work with you to edit your submission so that it is ready for posting.

You may send in more than one submission. You will retain full rights to your submissions. Submissions will be posted according to themes and openings in the blog schedule.


For blog posts, please keep your submission under 800 words. For poetry reflections, we suggest keeping them to 250 words (such as the poetry reflections in Teaching with Heart). Please enter your reflection here or attach as file below.
If possible, please send a photo or image to accompany your reflection.
Please include how long you have been involved in education and your current position. Feel free to include information about your projects outside of the classroom.

If possible, please share links to your Facebook page, twitter account and website.
