We at TIE welcome a broad range of submissions, much as we seek to provide a strong, representative offering of subjects and viewpoints in each issue of The International Educator newspaper.
We encourage heads, teachers, students, and other staff to submit stories on any topic relevant to the international education community. For example, we encourage you to send us your school news—write-ups about your big events, your achievements, your vision—as well as articles and opinion pieces on curriculum and instructional strategies, professional development, counseling, community involvement initiatives, student projects, etc. While hardly exhaustive, here is a list of possible topics:

Please note the following points regarding submissions to TIE:
- Format: kindly submit your work as a Microsoft Word file, by email, to [email protected] or [email protected]. Suggested word count is 800 words maximum, unless by prior agreement.
- Deadlines: TIE is published four times per year, in early October, December, February and April (in addition to the jobs-only summer supplement). We therefore encourage submissions on a rolling basis, and will endeavor to publish reader contributions as soon as possible, given the limitations stated above. If your submission is time-sensitive (announcements, news items) and should be considered for publication in the next issue, send it in by the first of the month preceding the issue in question: by 1 September for the October issue, by 1 November for the December issue, and so on.
- Photographs: We are always on the lookout for high-quality, attractive images from around the world. Please ensure that any photographs you send us are in their original size, that they are of sufficiently high resolution to be usable for print purposes, namely 266 dpi or above, and that they include captions.
We look forward to reading you!
