Contribute to the Chicago Bridge Blog

Do you have an interest or passion related to aging that you’d like to share with others? Are you working on an exciting new project relevant to the field that you want to shout about from the rooftops? You should write for the Chicago Bridge Blog!

Become a writer. You are the expert!

We welcome all original submissions from any member of Chicago Bridge who has something to say about the field of aging. The article must be an original piece, which has not been published on any other website or blog. It must be specifically related to the older adult population and must not be for the promotion of products or services. We are always looking for professionals and students alike who would like to have the opportunity to get their opinions, analysis, or story out to a wide audience:

    • Social Workers
    • Art/Music Therapists
    • Lawyers
    • Doctors
    • Nurses
    • Policy Gurus
    • Research professionals
    • Students
    • Nursing Home Administrators
    • Bankers
    • Hospice Care Workers
    • Home Care Professionals
    • Counselors
    • You!

Why would I do this?

The simple answer is to increase exposure and build your career (and resume!). This is a creative and fun way to make an impact. Our writers are making connections to others in the field because of their blog posts. Some writers have been asked to speak at events as an expert in their subject. You never know what doors your article could open up for you.

I can’t write!

Every article is gone over by an editor before it is published. The editor will do whatever it takes to make your article polished and professional. You will look like Hemingway by the time your article is posted. Please read the  How to Write a Web Article to learn more.

Can I be a regular contributor?

We are looking for dedicated professionals who would like to be a permanent member of our writing team. If you only want to write one article, that’s okay too.
