RTE Writing Partners

Do you have an idea for an article, podcast episode, or teacher resource?

Personal Narrative Mentor Texts
  • Perhaps you're an author with a novella that has a great message that would resonate with a teenage audience.
  • Maybe you own a media production company that covers cultural and social events of interest to young people?
  • Or you're a young writer (18+) with a poem, essay or other text that you know has an important message and will resonate middle and high school students?
  • Maybe you're a teacher with a great idea that will help other teachers better engage their students in reading and writing. We'd love your guest articles or to feature you on our podcast!

We want to work with you!

We are seeking teachers and authors who are willing to partner with us to create blog posts, podcast episodes, lesson plans or professional development that center your message and content for delivery to teachers of young adults. We are particularly looking for:

  • texts written for young adults (13-18) that address social justice and social change themes
  • pedagogical, research-based articles written for secondary English Language Arts teachers
  • how-to topics for the blog or podcast based on specific theoretical frameworks and how to apply them within the context of a secondary ELA class  

With thousands of teachers on our list, we can create an engaging unit around your work and promote it to teachers around the globe who are looking for writing that students WANT to read.

We are particularly interested in publishing pieces by authors who are unpublished or self-published and who want to observe and/or participate in the unit creation and marketing processes. We value your feedback and appreciate your promotional efforts.
