General Article Guidelines for bloggers

If you’re interested in blogging for us please first read our article guidelines below. We generally only accept blogs from people who are working or have worked in the TEFL industry.


Must be between 375 and 850 words long.


Must have a fitting title that is over five words long and in title case (Every important word capitalised).


Must be completely original and your own work. It also must not be published elsewhere.


Must be factually accurate.

Well Written

Must be reasonably well written – free from spelling and grammatical errors, intelligent, succinct, make sense, and be reader friendly.

No Sales Pitches

The articles are for information purposes and must not be ‘salesy’. Therefore, please do not mention other schools or TEFL job sites, commercial tourist operators etc.


The articles are there to offer advice and useful info for those browsing the website, so be sure that they focus primarily on advice/teaching techniques and tips that would be beneficial to other Summer TEFL teachers/aspirants in the UK.

Point of View

These may be written in the first person (if experience based), second person (if providing advice), or third person if it is an informative piece.


We would prefer it if you could include your own images (ones you have the right to publish). If this is not possible, we will source images to go with the post.


We would be happy to provide a link to your blog, twitter account or website. Please include the details next to your name in the byline.

Time Commitment

Including research, most articles should take between 45 – 90 minutes to write as they are not particularly ‘in depth’.
