Writing and Submission Guidelines

When developing your work, think of your piece as “spark notes” for college life. Articles should be quick, simple and to the point.

  • Around 500 words is great, shorter is even better.
  • If your piece is longer please use short paragraphs, bullets and/or numbers to make things clear. Lists always get better digested than long-winded paragraphs. (ie Articles like 6 Ways to Simplify your Dinner are great!)
  • Structure is key. Bulleted lists, quick tips, focused writing and awesome content that has an impact is perfect.
  • Please PROOFREAD. Minor changes may be made to your piece for quality or clarity purposes. The integrity of your article will remain intact. Changing missed spelling errors or grammar issues is not meant to offend you, but improve the post.
  • Attach images you want to include with your post with the appropriate attribution and credits included.
  • Submit your post in word document format.
As a writer for Campus Riot you must:
  • Share your blog post and website with others through social media, email and word-of-mouth.
  • Engage in the comment section of your post and other articles on the site.
