We've got some simple guidelines to follow when writing an article for micro:mag. Please read them below before you start writing.

  • Keep your article micro:bit related.
  • Your article should be at least 500 words and whilst we don't have a maximum word count, keep your article as concise as possible. If you don't think you can keep it within a concise word count, it might work best as a series of articles.
  • Your article must be exported as .txt or a MarkDown file. You should be able to export your article from any popular word processing software in one of these file types.
  • It's really important that you fill in the contributions form before starting to write your article, this way, we can contact you if we have any questions/worries.
  • Please try and submit your article to us within 2/3 weeks of filling in the contributions form. This way we can keep to our publishing schedule.
  • We'll need the main text of your article, a short bio and a profile picture within your submission.
  • Images must comply with copyright laws. If the image is your own or you have permission from the person who the image belongs too, you can submit it. However, make sure to credit the owner.
  • Each image must be clearly marked within the main body of your article like the example below:
