Writing for Agora
Writing for Agora gives you a chance to share your expertise and ideas with history teachers and contribute to the history teaching community. Agora invites submissions that relate to history teaching in any way, from classroom-ready activities to deep curriculum discussions and insights into history teaching as a discipline.
Read more about the editorial process, copyright and our style guide.
Agora content is aimed at practising history teachers and educators. Articles range in tone from formal and academic style to conversational. Writers are expected to demonstrate a fair-minded approach when discussing the work of others, and submissions should be both courteous and academically rigorous.
Please send submissions to the Agora editor at firstname.lastname@example.org. By submitting a contribution to Agora, you agree to the terms of the author agreement. Please include a signed copy of the agreement with your submission.
Each issue of Agora focuses on a specific theme. Articles that don’t relate to the theme are also welcome, although they may be held over for an appropriate issue.
