The first part of this article is pertaining to the general process of submitting work to publications on Medium. The second part has to do with writing for Age of Awareness how to contribute to the publication.

I write this as it is not always clear for many writers on Medium how to submit their works to publications. This is a question that comes up frequently when writers/authors try to submit to Age of Awareness. For those not familiar with the site it can be a little unclear how to locate the icon with the option to submit.

First, you need to reach out to the publication or whoever manages the publication. You need to ask them to be added as an author to the publication so you can have the option to submit it to the publication.

Second, you go to the “three dots” at the end of your article (picture below).

Third, you select the publication you want to add it to (if you are successfully added as an author). When you click the three dots, you should see a similar menu pictured below. Let me know if you have any questions.

The importance of using tags for your articles

Tags allow for your articles to be categorized on Medium and can help them be found easier by the readers that you desire (ie articles with the tag ‘education’ will be found by those interested in education). For AoA, we use four main tags that split our articles and works into four main categories. Those tags are in the red box below:

We suggest that you add tags like ‘education’, ‘tech’, ‘teaching’, ‘learning’, ‘schools’, ‘edtech’, ‘higher education’, ‘education technology’ and so on. These tags will help your work reach your target audience.

Please note that Medium’s Terms of Service applies to Age of Awareness, as it is a Medium publication. Make sure you read it before submitting your article.
