What happens next?
Once your pitch is received you will receive a message from us informing you whether it has been accepted.
My pitch has been accepted…what happens next?
You will be required to submit a maximum 700-word post. If you prefer, you can submit an audio-visual post or mix the two up. You will receive feedback on your post submitted to us from an academic. You may be recommended to make some suggested revisions to your submission. Once revisions are accepted or negotiated we will be posting your submission on our site and advertising it on our social media platforms.
Why post on GradMinds.com?
We recognise blogging is now an integral part of Higher Education, students on many courses are required to write blogs as a part of their assessment. GradMinds.com provides such students a platform to publish the blogs they have been working on and to share them with a wider audience. We hope lecturers too can benefit from reading posts published here to find out about student experiences in diverse fields. We hope this will encourage academics and students to learn from one another.
As you will receive feedback from an academic on your submission, this will provide you with the opportunity to improve and develop reflective writing skills.
