NTEN’s free monthly e-publication, NTEN Connect, is full of resources on the latest nonprofit technology issues from leaders in the field. It goes out to more than 36,000 of the most influential leaders and innovators in the world of nonprofit technology. Unlike a lot of other newsletters, ours actually gets read. We routinely see open rates above 26%, with an average 6% unique clicks per issue.

Guest articles published by NTEN determine the content of Connect. NTEN Connect articles often include case studies, how-tos, tips, and general interest pieces about nonprofit technology, tied to our theme for the month (review themes below).

Please note that all guest articles on the NTEN website are non-promotional in nature. We generally do not publish more than 2 pieces by any one organization in a calendar year, to ensure a diversity of community voices. Unsolicited articles are generally not published, and NTEN staff reserves the right to reject any material that does not follow our editorial guidelines and to edit accepted pieces as it sees fit.

Unless otherwise agreed, all articles will be published under a Creative Commons-Attribution license; anybody may re-post your work, as long as they note and link back to the original.

Being published on the NTEN website doesn’t guarantee publication in NTEN Connect. The NTEN Community decides the content, based on how they interact with all of the guest articles NTEN publishes that month (in terms of page views, time on page, comments, and social media mentions).

Guest Author Suggestion Box

While we generally do not accept unsolicited articles, we enthusiastically accept suggestions for guest authors. If you would like to suggest a guest author for an upcoming Connect theme, please visit our Connect Author Suggestion Box.
