Treehouse is the leader in education for web designers and developers. We pride ourselves in offering quality articles on cutting-edge design and desktop and mobile development trends. But we need great writers to add even more value.

Sharing knowledge, tips, tricks and trends is the heart of an inviting, energetic and resourceful publication. Nothing makes us happier than adding to our network and growing the web community we love so much.

What are we looking for?

Knowledge: Whether you’re writing for beginner students or about the most advanced concepts, you need to know your stuff. We will only publish posts from writers who clearly have expertise in the subjects they’ve covering.

Writing chops: You must clearly and effectively communicate your ideas. It helps, too, if you have a strong, inviting and warm voice. Your tone should be personable. We don’t publish tech manuals. And remember: Grammar, spelling and punctuation are important.

Passion: You should be excited about the topic you’ve chosen to cover. Don’t write for the sake of writing. Your enthusiasm should shine through.

What should you write about?

We accept pitches on any web design or development topic, but we’re currently looking for articles about:

  • Responsive Design
  • CSS3
  • HTML5
  • Ruby on Rails
  • PHP
  • jQuery
  • iOS
  • Android
  • Mobile
  • Usability
  • Coding strategies
  • Freelancing
  • Productivity

How do you apply?

Send us a brief email to blog@teamtreehouse.com with the subject line “I want to write for the Treehouse blog.” Outline your experience and briefly explain the specific article you’d like to submit. Also, please provide no more than three clips or published writing examples.

We typically pay $100 to $200 per published article. Publishing even just one Treehouse post is not a guarantee of future employment or a promise that we will publish additional posts from you.

Thank you for your interest.
