Write for Wptuts+

by

Our focus here on Wptuts+ is on tutorials for WordPress developers (makes sense, right?). We cover anything related to WordPress, in particular theme and plugin development.

Our tutorials are aimed at anyone from beginner to intermediate, intermediate to advanced, and so on. Ultimately, our goal is to make sure that the reader leaves with more knowledge than when they arrived.


What We’re Looking For

At the moment we’re wanting to publish more content on areas such as responsive theme development, app themes, unit testing with WordPress, preprocessors (Sass / LESS, in particular), parallax implementation, and a variety of plugin examples.

Basic tutorials are welcome, but we’re really after thorough coverage of these areas. Think Tom McFarlin-style (check out Tom’s series’ on Wptuts+ to get what I mean there).

At the moment we only accept content in English. We’ll proofread, edit, and provide feedback on your content, but we won’t re-write it for you, so it’s important your English is fluent.

Having said that, if you have a question about how to phrase something in English, go ahead and write it as best you can and one of the editors will be happy to provide feedback prior to publishing the article. Don’t let intimidation of the English language prevent you from contributing an article!

I’m going to go ahead and assume you know a little about WordPress for this, so you’ll be comfortable drafting your posts in WordPress ;)


Let’s Talk Money

We don’t expect you to write for us for free! You’ll start out on $150 USD per tutorial, and we bump that up once you’ve written a handful of posts for us. High profile authors can negotiate a higher rate with us, but you’ve really got to know your stuff. I’m talking serious WordPress chops!

Some of our regular authors invoice us for $750+ USD per month. That’s not bad for dropping some knowledge and getting some recognition, too! For the right authors, we can guarantee you publishing spots to help you pump out quality WordPress tutorials.

Also, who doesn’t love a marketplace badge? You get a special badge for contributing a tutorial to a Tuts+ site ;)


Where To Next?

Whether you’ve written for Wptuts+ before, or you’re fresh to this tutorial writing business, please hit me up! (Even if you’ve applied before and it hasn’t worked out!) Shoot an email to wp@tutsplus.com with the following info:

  • Name
  • Marketplace username
  • Brief paragraph filling me in on your background and why you want to write for us
  • One link to a tutorial you’ve written, helped with, or is the kind of content you want to create
  • Two ideas for tutorials you’d like to write for us
  • A link to your portfolio and / or GitHub profile
  • Show your passion!

Best of luck! I look forward to hearing from you and hopefully working together. If WordPress isn’t your strong suit, don’t forget there are other Tuts+ sites you may consider getting in touch with too:
