Blogging is an excellent way to showcase your work to the RSA Fellowship and beyond. Fellows' blogs are original think pieces or opinion pieces on the topics that interest them.
We are open-minded about the subject matter, so long as it is relevant to the RSA's aims and values, though we ask that you aim for 700-900 words in length. We also require an introductory paragraph that summarises the article and introduces you as a guest blogger, so please include a short paragraph about yourself when you submit.
Before the blog goes live, you'll need to ensure that your MyRSA profile is updated as this will allow other Fellows to get in touch with you.
It's also important to remember that we cannot directly promote via a link any crowdfunding campaigns that aren't part of the RSA Crowdfunding programme of support.
Turnaround time from submission to publication is generall 1-2 weeks. Post publication, you will be notified via email if a comment is posted on your blog. Do engage with readers who respond with opinions or questions either on the site or across social media networks - it will help your blog to get better reach!
If you’d like to publish a blog on our site then please pitch an idea or send a completed blog to Jack McDonald, who is the RSA's Fellowship Communications Coordinator.
Read pieces on topical issues by Fellows and guest writers, and open up the debate by adding your comments and submitting your own articles.
RSA Comment has its own article submissions guidelines, which you can view here.
Fuel For Thought
Fuel For Thought is a new platform that we are seeking to roll out over the coming months. If you want to share your ideas and projects, gain feedback on them or collaborate with likeminded Fellows, then Fuel For Thought is the place to head.
Using the Wazoku platform, which was generously gifted to the RSA by a Fellow, we are developing a fertile space where Fellows can collaborate and refine their ideas and projects.
If you are working on something that you’d like to announce to the Fellowship, but do not feel that the above options are quite right, then you have the option to submit a short 'news bulletin' for the Fellowship homepage.
Keep it short and sweet, ideally under 300 words. You can always hyperlink to more information. It should be written in the third person and directly reference you and your relationship to the project/event you're promoting.
Please submit your news piece to your Area Manager, whose contact details can be found at the above link.
We also accept vlogs and understand that you might be more keen to present your findings in a non-written manner!
If you want to present your research or project in such a manner, please do contact either Jack McDonald for a preliminary conversation.
