Welcome to The Wise Owl's Contributor Page.

Who We Are

The Wise Owl is a place for community, where parents, educators, and therapists come together to share what they’ve learned and how they apply that knowledge to helping the lives of children with special needs. It’s a place where practical tools combine with inspiration, all delivered with one singular purpose: to help children become what they’re capable of becoming.

What We’re Looking For

We’re looking for fresh and original content that brightens the path for either parent, educator, or therapist, or as the case will often be, all at the same time. Of course, don’t worry if your content speaks to only one group. Whoever the audience, the goal is always the same: improve a child’s life.

That’s all that really matters.

While we will always welcome and encourage experts and thought leaders in the field to contribute, we also hope that anyone who has a unique viewpoint and the slightest thread of light will share their story. Expert or novice, authenticity and humanity is what we seek the most, along with the ability to connect and inspire. Tips, theories and strategies will always be important, but never more than the capacity to uplift a parent or educator who needs an encouraging hand.

Submission Guidelines & Tips

Keep posts between 750-1500 words. Check your grammar. Then check it again.

Check out our mission statement here. Write with this in mind.

Humor helps. So, does story. Examples. Visuals. A good title.

Know what you want to say and say it in a way that moves someone to act. Don’t preach. Inspire.

When appropriate, share a specific story from your life. It’s not just about the lessons and insights; it’s also about how you came to learn them.

Offer practical information that will help readers address similar challenges. It doesn’t need to be a list of tips, but the story needs to build to a message and lesson for readers.

Provide original, personal, and honest work. Original means your post has never before been published anywhere, including your own blog, and does not include any sections taken from a previously published post.

Reserve self promotion to your bio (as opposed to marketing a business, course, workshop, or service directly in the post).

Please note that we may delete links within the posts themselves.

How to Submit:

Send your post in Microsoft Word, keeping paragraphs to three sentences or less. Include a bio, sixty words or less, at the bottom of the post.

Upload a photo of yourself at gravatar.com (if you’d like a photo to show next to your bio). Also, please include in your email the email address you used for that site.

Use the contact form to upload your post, choosing “blog submission” from the drop-down menu.

It may be up to three weeks before you receive a response from us. We may send your post back with questions/comments to expand in parts, and we may edit it/change the title before publishing on the site.
