"My idea of good company is the company of clever, well-informed people who have a great deal of conversation; that is my idea of good company."

I am always on the lookout for company - it always makes for a better tea party. What Would Jane Do is no exception. If you are interested in contributing to this blog, please first review the information below!

 

Guidelines

  1. All content must be original, unpublished work. I understand that pitches may be picked up by multiple sources, but please make sure your pieces are creatively tailored to suit the topics and audience of this blog. You are welcome to repost your stories after they are published here, but please give original credit to What Would Jane Do
  2. While I think a variety of people may enjoy this blog, the main audience tends to be prospective, current and post-college students, with a particular emphasis on women. This may range anywhere from the 18 - 25 age range. Please keep this in mind when sending your ideas my way
  3. Content can be written posts (aim for between 400 to 800 words), videos, and/or photography
  4. Please, please, please spell check your posts before sending them.

    Types of Posts


    The following descriptions are to help give you an idea of what kind of content I'm looking for. These are just suggestions - get creative and let me know if there is something else you'd like to cover! Please also review the About Page for more background about this blog.
    1. From Her Perspective - Just as the title suggests, this type of post will focus on a personal experience you've had (i.e. interesting college experience? A study abroad program you MUST recommend?) and what you learned from it, as well as advice you might have to offer to other women. The most important thing to consider: how does the experience relate to being an independent and modern woman?
    2. Tech Talk - If you love social media like me and are fascinated by the ways technology is changing the communications industry, I'd love to hear your thoughts. I aim to talk about technology in a way that makes it approachable and easy to understand, so if you have a great tip or insider perspective, please let me know! Whether it's learning to effectively job hunt or stay updated with breaking news and trends, Tech Talk will be the go-to source of information for women everywhere.
    3. Tea For Two - Here is where I'd like to have some fun. I know I'm not the only teaholic out there and there are FAR too many teas to try on my own. This is where you come in; what reviews or recommendations do you have to offer? Every modern girl can do anything with the right cup of tea, so get sippin' ladies.

     

    Why Contribute?

     
    If you're taking the time to read this blog in the first place, you've probably realized how much I love the written word. I'm hoping readers of this blog will feel the same. By contributing an article, story, or review, you will be adding your voice to a network of other study abroad fans, tea lovers, social media nerds, and post grad gurus. Every person has a story tell, and I simply seek to encourage that. 

    Every contributing author will also receive a short bio (with a link to your preferred network) and optional headshot. Accompanying photography may also be submitted with posts.
