Author Guidelines:
Author Guidelines: Download the author guidelines. Be sure to read them carefully so you meet our strict word counts and try to think of ways to bullet or number your content. Remember, most NTA articles can be seen as a series of tips with every sentence or every two sentences becoming a stand-alone tip to implement. To see the rubric that will be used for evaluating your manuscript, go to the Write for NTA web page. Look at some past issues to see our style (you’ll find them listed in the Submission Process on the same page).

The New Teacher Advocate works on a rolling deadline, so feel free to submit any time! Because all articles are reviewed and most need revisions, we work about 12-16 months ahead of deadlines, so even when your article is accepted, it will not be published for 12-18 months.
