Call for Authors: Write For Tuts+!

We're currently looking for more authors to join our team! Specifically, we're looking for those who have strong web development skills - both front-end and back-end. 

Of course, this raises the question: what all does this entail when it comes to write for an established, respected, and educational network?

Depending on on your level of experience, it could mean a variety of different things.

The Skills We're Looking For

We aim to publish content on Tuts+ Code that focuses specifically on web development technology. A broad topic, right?

This includes anything and everything from PHP, Ruby, server-side JavaScript, HTML5, CSS3, document-based database systems, and everything in between. No matter what you're familiar with be it in your day-to-day, your hobby work, or both, we're likely looking to run it.

After all, our ultimate goal is to help others earn and learn.

Of course, what's the bottom line for you guys and girls who are interested in writing for us? Take a look at some of the benefits.

Becoming a Tuts+ Author

Some of the benefits include:

  • Writing about a topic and educating others about a topic that you're specifically interested in not only furthering your skills, but also in teaching others.
  • Getting your name out into the community especially if you're starting your freelance career.
  • You're an established developer or consultant and are looking to diversify your platform while expanding your writing skills.
  • Establish yourself as an expert in your given field.
  • Collaborate with other authors on topics, projects, and more!

There are many more benefits that come with this position some of which have kept a number of our authors around for quite some time, and that have lead them into other opportunities, as well!

Let's Talk Money!

Down to brass tacks, one of the biggest questions that people have is "How much will I get paid?" Some of our regular authors bill us for $700 USD+ per month for publishing high quality tutorials, several times per month.

Our rates start at $100 USD per quick tip tutorial and $250 USD per regular tutorial (that is, per article per tutorial). We are willing to discuss rates for higher profile authors and educators, as well.

If you're a regular author who is consistently hitting deadlines, providing quality content and engaging with readers, you can expect raises and to bill more as you continue to work with us. Earn money from home teaching topics that you love working with a distributed team. Not bad, huh?

Pitch a Tutorial!

We'll need the following information from you:

  • Name.
  • A brief paragraph about your background and why you're a good fit.
  • A link to an article that you've written, helped create, or like.
  • Two ideas for tutorials that you'd like to write for us.
  • Examples of your work, either attached images or a link to your portfolio.

E-mails with just a couple of sentences will be discarded... we want passionate people teaching our passionate readers! Send the above using this form.

I look forward to hearing from you and can't wait to see what you bring to the table, to work with you, and for helping us to further educate our readers!
