2. Keep it relevant. We are an association of professional communicators and we welcome content from all corners of the industry, from copywriting to crisis management, from public relations to poster making. However, we want to ensure that everything we share provides value to our readers without alienating them. We do not promote services, nor do we act as a personal blog.
3. Write with purpose. Whether you are showcasing a new product, a specific technique, or a viewpoint on the industry, do so with a clear goal in mind. Look through some of our past articles for examples (http://sf.iabc.com/category/newsnotables/). Of course, if you don't see an article like the one you want to write, that doesn't mean we won't accept it. We are always seeking fresh, exciting content, so don't hesitate to ask if you aren't sure about a style or an idea.
4. Write for a general audience. Though we are all communications professionals, we do not all come from the same educational or professional backgrounds. Try to avoid jargon and technical language unless it will be defined.
5. Let your voice be heard! This is a great space for you to share your thoughts and ideas about emerging practices and unconventional wisdom.
