Are you passionate about New Dream and want to share your thoughts, perspectives, and creativity?
We welcome guest submissions for blog posts and other media on topics that are relevant to the diverse issues we cover.
**Please read the following guidelines before submitting a post**
New Dream’s mission is to empower individuals, communities, and organizations to transform the ways they consume to improve well-being for people and the planet. You can read more about us here.
The overarching goal of New Dream’s content and communications is to change the dominant narrative around “stuff,” “happiness,” the “good life,” and conventional notions of success and opportunity. We seek to question consumption and to explore the many ways in which we all are compelled to consume, and how that is experienced differently across race, class, gender, religion, ethnicity, ability, sexual orientation, and other dimensions of difference.
We encourage submissions for blogs and other content that is related to our mission and that has a particular emphasis on the intersection of consumption and equity—how people’s experience of consumption is different based on their lived experience.
We appreciate personal stories related to our mission and focus, and are most likely to publish content that explicitly questions the systems that define our consumption choices and habits.
We are especially eager to share perspectives and stories from under-represented voices: youth and elders, across political and religious beliefs, socioeconomic backgrounds, race, gender, and geographies, within North America. However, we are open to relevant submissions from around the world.

Examples of content ideas that would interest us (but please do not limit your ideas to these):
We are open to all types of blog content. However, we especially welcome content that is visually based, for example a photography essay with short captions, or brief essays of 1,000-2,500 words, with 2-4 accompanying, relevant images.
We do not provide compensation for guest posts at this time. However, we do offer full recognition and attribution of authors. To that end, please include a short bio of 60 words or fewer with your submission, as well as a photo of yourself. You may include as many relevant links as you would like.
Please note that we are unlikely to post blog content that is strictly self-promotional, or that promotes a specific business, course, workshop, or service. (Self-promotion for the purposes of context or identification can be included in your bio.) Note that any overly promotional links in the body of the post may be removed.
Please send your post as an attached file to firstname.lastname@example.org, with “Blog Submission” in the subject line and an explanatory note in the email message.
If your post is a good fit for us at the time, you will receive a response within two weeks. If you don’t receive a response, please feel free to try again with a different post. You may be asked to revise to make your post stronger or clearer, and your proposed title may be changed before publication. Your post will be edited for clarity, grammar, and overall style.
If there are significant revisions recommended, we will send a version for your review and approval.
Thank you for sharing your passion and experience with the New Dream community.
We look forward to hearing from you!
