How to Submit: Send a description of the proposed article with two writing samples to eallen@iaap-hq.org. Please no hard copy submissions, electronic mail only.

Tips for Writers: We like it when a writer can take an assignment or pitch an idea that has new information or a fresh twist on the old. We don’t want to see vagueness and generality in writing. I like expert contributions either as a writer or the one a writer interviews. When our readers finish an article, they shouldn’t say "Well, duh." They should have learned specific steps to take and practical ideas to use. We want our readers to feel energized and empowered by what they read in OfficePro.
