How you can contribute at Mindfray
You can contribute by submitting Feature Articles on topics of your choice or based on writing prompts for publication on the site.
Feature Articles typically range between 1,000-2,000 words. Articles are categorized by (1) sharing experiences and personal insights; (2) sharing opinions and discussing topics; (3) sharing knowledge, advice and expertise.
Check out our general submission guidelines, and learn more about how to submit an article for the first time. If you’re already a Contributor, you may submit articles via our submission portal or by sending us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can contribute by submitting short responses to the Contributor Perspectives prompts provided by Mindfray or submitted by our community.
Contributors may use up to 400 words per response. Once a set number of Contributors have responded to these prompts, they are compiled into a single article that highlights each Contributor’s unique response to provide multiple perspectives for a particular topic.
