We want your stories on the Code for America blog

Do you believe government can work for everyone in the 21st century? Great! Let’s get started.

About Code for America’s Medium blog. The blog showcases perspectives from our founder, staff, volunteers, fellows, government partners, and anyone who cares about building a government fit for the 21st century.

Areas we are especially interested in:

If you have a completed post you’d like considered for the Code for America Medium blog and you have already been added as a “writer” on the publication, submit a draft directly on Medium. If you have an idea for a post, a how-to, or a story you’d like to share and have not yet been added as a “writer,” email me at jillian@codeforamerica.org, and put “PITCH” in the subject line.

Pitches should be:

  • Original — How is this story unique to you? Why are you the best person to tell it?
  • Tied back to digital practices in some way — user centered, iterative, data-driven
  • Focused on outcomes — Who did you help and how?
  • Conversation-starters
