We are pleased to inform you that the call for posts for University of Venus, August 2014 is currently open. The next deadline for submitting posts will be July 15, 2014.
The University of Venus is an Education Writer’s Association award-winning, peer-reviewed blog bringing together GenX women in higher education from around the globe. We can be found in Inside Higher Ed at BlogU (link here) and in The Guardian (UK) at the Higher Education Network (link here). Inside Higher Ed is an online publication focused on issues in higher education with offices located in Washington, DC in the USA. IHE was founded in 2004 by former managers/editors from The Chronicle of Higher Ed and the publication provides free online access to all of their articles. The Guardian was founded in 1821 in Manchester, England. The Guardian’s Higher Education Network is part of a portfolio of professional networks focused on bringing together professionals in higher education in an online format, through blogs, live chats, and lively discussion.
We generally publish posts three times a week, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 9am UTC+12. We accept posts in English, Spanish, Arabic, and Chinese, with a goal of reaching a global readership. (If you would like to submit a post written in another language, we are pretty flexible)
Posts should focus on current issues in higher education and should be no longer than 750 words. Most of our posts are written in a first-person narrative style to encourage a broader reach to a more general audience but we also welcome research-based posts. (Note – Although our focus is on GenX women, we also publish posts written by older and younger women and posts written by men.)

- Attach your post to the email in Microsoft Word format.
- The subject line of your email should include your first and last name: example – Mary Churchill Submission.

If you would like to include a photo of yourself (strongly encouraged for building connections with your readers), please attach it to your email in jpg format.
We invite you to go through our website and to submit posts for upcoming months. Inquiries can be directed to Mary Churchill at email@example.com.
