by Hannah Hethmon, Membership Marketing Coordinator, AASLH on

AASLH is accepting submissions of short articles to be posted on our official blog, Broadside. Specifically, we are seeking articles on issues and challenges facing history organizations and their staffs. Blog posts should be clear, concise, and offer obvious takeaways or suggestions. Carefully read the guidelines below, then submit your blog post here.

Here are ideas on what to write:

  • Takeaways from history organizations doing great work
  • Lessons learned from recent or ongoing projects at your organization
  • Tips on administration and leadership
  • Career advice and guidance for professionals in the field
  • Unique takes on current trends (i.e. what’s the next Hamilton?)
  • Constructive reflections on the state of the field

Guidelines:

  • Length: 350-800 words
  • Posts should be in Chicago Style
  • All submissions must include at least one landscape orientation photo with photo credit/caption
  • Do not footnote; instead, provide URLs for references
  • Single space after sentences

Photos:

  • All submissions must include at least one landscape orientation photo
  • Two-three photos are ideal
  • Photos should at least 450 pixels wide
  • Photos should be free of any copyright restrictions; include attributions/ credit in the captions

Terms:

  • AASLH reserves the right to turn down any post that isn’t a good fit for the blog
  • AASLH is not required to use the photos submitted with the post if they are not a good fit; in that case, the blog editor will supply appropriate photos to go with the post
  • AASLH will adjust or replace titles as needed  for consistency and clarity
