Contributing to Klingbrief  

Klingbrief is a newsletter published monthly during the academic year that is electronically distributed to over 5000 educators around the world. We rely upon independent and international school colleagues like you to give us your thoughts on what you find most useful to your work. Your recommendation of an impactful article, thoughtful book or inspiring video is crucial for making Klingbrief relevant and useful.

Submission Requirements

If you are interested in contributing, please search the archives so you don't duplicate a previous submission. Please make note of the following criteria and then complete the form below to submit an item for consideration. We look forward to receiving your contribution.

  • Contributors must provide a review of their submitted materials that is between 150 and 200 words.
  • Contributions must cover educational or social issues of relevance to independent and international schools.
  • Recommendations of one's own work cannot be considered.
All submissions are peer reviewed and selected by an editorial board composed of Klingenstein alumni who seek work that provokes, inspires and has broad appeal. When considering a selection, please search the archives to see if a piece has previously appeared in the publication.
