Write For Us!

As a contributing writer, you will have a dedicated author page on our website so our readers can look up your name and find all your articles listed at once. We take care of all the marketing, designing and publishing while you focus on penning down your work. 

Follow these steps to submit your writing!

We only accepting final submissions (not rough drafts/pitches). Co-authored and previously published pieces are also welcome, as long as you have the relevant permissions.

There’s no word limit as such, but pieces ranging from 800-1500 words work best.

Apart from the usual caveat of no plagiarism, we only accept submissions that are written in a jargon-less, simple-to-follow language. In other words, anyone who reads it, regardless of their educational background, should be able to understand what you’re talking about.

Please note that we won’t be able to provide individual feedback for all submissions.

Your piece must cite all references and sources that were referred in the research/writing process. 

All references must be added as in-text citations and must be hyperlinked to a word in the article. Like this

(Separate bibliography section will only be accepted in case of research and working papers).

Once you’ve done a grammatical and spelling check of your article, you’re now ready to submit. Please share your article in a .doc or .docx file format with all hyperlinks being clickable. No PDFs. 

You can send in your submissions at contact@publicpolicyindia.com. Make sure to include “Article Submission” in the subject line of the email!

In your submission email, please include the following – 

  1. A clear mugshot of you, to attach to your article
  2. A 50-word bio of yourself
  3. Instagram and Linkedin handles (if you’d like us to tag you)

Not that long, we promise. Once we’ve assessed your piece, we’ll let you know if or not we’ve decided to publish your article on our website. The whole process until publishing might take 10-14 days, if we haven’t gotten to you by then, please feel free to drop us a follow up.

Please note that we won’t be able to provide individual feedback for all submissions.
