Have you learned something new about our industry? If so, Modern is interested in sharing your insights with our readers. Here’s how to submit a column to Other Voices.

First,  We’re looking for trends, insights or news our readers can use. We are not looking for new product announcements, press releases or something promoting a service your company is offering. Is something changing about retail distribution? Are you seeing more voice or pick-to-light implementations than in the past? Are new requests showing up on RFPs that constitute a trend? Do you have a strategy for Software as a Service or putting a supply chain app on a mobile device? Tell us something we don’t know.

You also need to keep in mind a couple of ground rules – the kind of rules that apply to any other professional writers who regularly write for us:

There are no guarantees of publication: At the end of the day, the piece has to be suitable for publication in Modern – just like any other piece that comes in from our regular writers. We will maintain our usual standards, and like any other publication, we reserve the right to pick, choose and reject submissions that aren’t suitable for Modern or that are overtly promotional. We don’t want the column to be a sales pitch.

You will get edited: See above! Magazines edit everything prior to publication; I’m the executive editor, and my submissions are edited by my peers. If you think that your writing is perfect and you want to see it published word for word exactly as you wrote, you need to start your own blog.

We may or may not send it back for a review: See above again! Pros are edited, and editors don’t always send our stuff back to us for a review or approval. We do this for a living, so we will respect your work and your intentions. But, we won’t always have time to send things back and dialogue about it.

Keep it brief: A good column should run 750 words or less.

Surprise us with an insight: We’re looking for trends and insights, not new product announcements or press releases.

Make sure you give us complete contact info with the submission: That way we can e-mail or call you if we have a question.

If you have a column already written, feel free to send it to Senior Editor Josh Bond (.(JavaScript must be enabled to view this address)).

Let’s get the conversation going.
