Write For Us

Dickens_by_Watkins_1858Please contact Publisher David Rothman at davidrothman@pobox.com if you’d like to write for us.

We want to hear only from people who constantly read ebooks and are writing from the heart—not hucksters disguised as “content marketers.” In other words, we want appropriate articles, not variants of ads. We no longer run “sponsored posts,” even from good people representing legitimate companies and leveling with readers.

Unless you tell us exactly what you want to write about, we won’t reply. If your proposed article is not directly ebook-related or otherwise very relevant to our new site, TeleRead.org, please don’t bother. Include a bio with links so we can get a good sense of your intent and who you are.

Normally we do not pay outsiders. Perhaps that will change in the future. It’s a question of keeping TeleRead sustainable. Meanwhile this is a chance to get good exposure and perhaps be a regular yourself someday.
