eMagazine Article Submission

Are you interested in submitting an article for The SHRM-Atlanta Connection, our members-only eMagazine? Read below for submission instructions and details on what we look for in an article.


Article Overview

Articles submitted for consideration should be of interest to HR professionals. We like articles that introduce new ideas and advance conversations around topics and trends that engage our readers. We appreciate lively, polished writing that balances research or news with fun and memorable anecdotes or examples that help illustrate your point of view.

While we encourage drawing from your own experiences in business to support your ideas, over-the-top self-promotion (of yourself or your company) will prevent us from publishing your article. Also, please do not send pitches, abstracts, outlines, press releases, or interview offers.

SHRM-Atlanta prefers submissions from contributors who are leaders in and knowledgeable about relevant HR topics, such as: career development, internships, recruiting, culture, employment law, business, strategic management, leadership development, technology, compensation and benefits, talent management, diversity, work-life issues and more.
