Q. ARE YOU LOOKING FOR AUTHORS?
Always! If you are more than halfway done, feel free to reach out. We are looking for books that align with the EduMatch mission and vision. Please reach out if you have substantial work (more than 50%) completed on your project. Fill out this form and we will get back to you. Note: please allow up to six weeks for our Acquisitions Team to review your submission.
*Members of traditionally underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to apply.
Q. HOW DO I TAKE PART IN AN #EDUSNAP?
We are seeking chapters from educators around the world for this project, writing about a variety of educational topics to gain a snapshot into education this year. The end goal will be to create a free anthology in electronic form, downloadable from the EduMatch Publishing website (edumatchpublishing.com) as well as other platforms TBD. There will be no compensation, as there will be no revenue; however, you will be listed as a contributing author on the book. If interested, please fill out this form.
Q. I HAVE A STORY, BUT I'M JUST A _______. WHO WOULD EVEN WANT TO LISTEN?
We do! We each have an important role to play in education, and no one else will share your message the way that you will. It takes repeated exposures to a concept to learn, and you never know...someone may need to hear a message the exact way you share it for them to truly understand. (Also, no one is "just" anything...embrace your expertise!)
FYI - We want to amplify the voices of those traditionally excluded and marginalized. If you belong to such a group, we especially want to amplify your expertise.
Q. WHAT OTHER THINGS DOES EDUMATCH DO?
Established in September 2014, EduMatch® is a worldwide grassroots community of educators, learning and growing together. We collaborate on multiple forms of social media, and believe in learning and growing together. Find us on your favorite social media sites, as well as on our podcast (and podcast network).
We will do a hard launch for our nonprofit in the coming months, so stay tuned!
Q. WHAT MAKES EDUMATCH PUBLISHING UNIQUE?
One major benefit of EduMatch Publishing is our partnership approach. As an author, we know that your work is your baby, and we are committed to supporting each of our authors and content creators in executing their work with fidelity. We honor you as an expert and consult with you throughout our journey together, from the layout to the cover design and everything in between.
Additionally, we are practitioners. Each member of the team is an educator, and to borrow from the old clothing line, we strongly believe in the motto, "For Us, by Us." Who is better to talk about educational solutions than educators and students?
Q. I AM AN EDCAMP ORGANIZER. DOES EDUMATCH PUBLISHING SUPPORT EDCAMPS?
We absolutely do! EduMatch® is a long-time supporter of the Edcamp movement. Email firstname.lastname@example.org the date of your Edcamp and a mailing address, and we will send some books your way. Please allow three weeks for mailing.
Q. I WANT TO PITCH MY IDEA RIGHT AWAY. WHY CAN'T I JUST TELL YOU?
We have an Acquisitions Team in place to ensure that the work of our content creators aligns with the mission and vision of EduMatch, along with other factors. If you are interested in pitching a book to us, we welcome you to fill out Prospective Author Form, and we will be in touch!
Q. I HAVE A BOOK IDEA THAT’S NOT EDUCATIONAL IN NATURE. ARE YOU STILL OPEN TO THAT?
Absolutely! Our PLF Press imprint has been created specifically for these inquiries. Please fill out our Prospective Author Form, and we will be in touch!
