Education Contributors

We’re looking for freelance journalists to contribute posts on education, with an emphasis on education’s intersection with business and money. We’re especially interested in writers with expertise in EdTech.

We also want people to write about policy news, especially when it involves money; K-12 school funding; teacher salary news like the recent WV teachers’ strike; coverage of academic or other studies that reveal new information about educational efficacy; college affordability and access; personal finance as it relates to paying for school; philanthropic involvement in education especially by business leaders like Mark Zuckerberg; coverage of college endowments; coverage of graduate schools including law school and business school. And we’re open to other topics.

Forbes pays $250 for at last 5 posts/month, $500 for at least 7 posts. Plus additional pay for high traffic. In a month where you post fewer than 5 posts, there is no compensation. Forbes sets you up with your own contributor page and you post independently without an editor’s approval, though we supply a style sheet and guidelines and we expect polished, fact-checked stories. We require original content but the rights revert to you five days after publication, when you are free to publish elsewhere. Forbes has strong SEO and a social team that promotes select posts.

Please contact Senior Editor Susan Adams,, 212-206-5571.
