Our mission

At SessionLab, we’re on a mission to help facilitators lead better workshops and create meaningful change.

We love being able to share best practices, methods, and stories from the community and champion the great work facilitators do every day! We want to amplify and share your stories, and build the best facilitation resources around.

Which is where you come in! This is your chance to share your expertise and opinion with a community of more than 300,000 monthly visitors.

Please review our guest post guidelines to learn more and submit your pitch or post using the link below.

We can’t wait to hear from you!

What we're looking for

Your perspective on facilitation

We want to hear about your unique perspective on facilitation. Every facilitator is different, and we can all learn from one another. How do you approach common tasks like planning or design differently? What is your approach to facilitation? We would love to hear your facilitation story! 

Practical facilitation tips, tools, and strategies

Do you have a methodology, practice, tool, or insight you’d like to share with the community? We love pieces that feature actionable insights and techniques that facilitators can start using immediately.

Responses to our current call for contributions

We periodically put out a call for contributions on a specific subject or aspect of facilitation. Check the bottom of the page for our current callout. 

General guidelines

Our mission is to help facilitators at every stage of their journey improve their practice.

When submitting your piece, think about how this might help other facilitators. If it provides value and will be genuinely useful to others, you have a great shot at being published.

We love promoting individual voices and hearing about your unique approach to facilitation. 

Hot takes, fresh perspectives and personal views are welcome here!

 

Content should be of high quality and written in fluent, US English.

We’ll help refine your piece if necessary, but well-written and formatted content is much easier more likely to be something we can move ahead with.

We want to help you share your stories, approach and amplify the reach of your business.

We’re happy for you to talk about the work you do as a facilitator as an organization. That said, we are publishing best practices, new ideas, and stories — not advertorials or promo content.

Content should be useful and compelling: our readers should not be hard-sold your service or product.

We love references, citations, and links to others. If you have relevant research and sources, please do include them in your post.

Your articles must be original and unpublished in order to be featured on SessionLab.

We want your fresh thoughts and ideas. Nothing reblogged or plagiarized, please.

We want to shout about you! Include a 2-3 sentence professional bio, photo, and links to your website and social media profiles with your submission.

  1. Submissions and pitches must meet our blogging team’s quality standards in order to get published. Editors reserve the right to reject contributions at their discretion.
  2. SessionLab reserves the right to edit and update your guest blog content at our discretion. We will discuss any pre-publication editorial changes with the author. Any significant post-publication changes will also be discussed with the author.
  3. We can permit 1-2 links to your company’s website in the body of the post. Link stuffing is not our style!
  4. For submitting pitches

    2. Include a title, a brief outline of what the post would include, and touch on why it would be useful to our audience of facilitators. 
    3. pitches should be well considered and with the relevant author insight to deliver on the premise. Successful pitches are those that demonstrate sufficient knowledge of the subject and the authorial expertise to follow through on the pitch.
    4. We welcome pitches on topics outside of those outlined above so long as they are relevant to an audience of facilitators.
  5. For submitting posts
    1. Submit your finished blog post using the form at the bottom of this page.
    2. Submissions should be in submitted as a Google Doc with editing permissions turned on for “anyone with the link.”
    3. no less than 1000 words on your chosen subject. We want to showcase useful, quality content that will help facilitators improve their practice. Depth is more important than brevity here.
    4. We have no upper word limit, though most content published is between 2000 and 6000 words in length.
