This back and forth will really drive home the talking points as well as the audience getting to know the author.

Authors – Submission
Articles are preferably around 1000-1500 words. The intent is to be narrow on all submitted material so that there is a specific focus about the topic. Each article will require a minimum of one (1) photo or video. These accompanying media file(s) will be used to drive social media awareness about the article and the author. Therefore, the more media files supplied with the copy can be used for multiple social media posts. These articles can focus on any issue that influences strategy and tactics as well as historical, cultural and/or leadership concepts. Since these are short form articles, be specific to the material and message you want to convey. Understand that with each written article, there will be an audio recording and interview with the author to deep dive in on the articles focus. Therefore, your talking points in the after article interview should be sound and specific as well.
As a partnership, we will publish your articles but the articles remain your property. We are a platform that promotes the fire service by recognizing the hard work and dedication of those willing to share their knowledge and experience. We are proud to share your work on our content channels but we firmly believe that this information shall remain your property.

Furthermore, any photos used must include the name and contact information for the photographer. Photos cannot be used if the source of the photo is not credited and validated. Please include in the article where the corresponding photos belong so that when published on the website, the format is in sync with your copy.
Lastly, please supply a photo and bio of yourself. Each published author will have a space on the website so that our community can seek out authors they enjoy learning from. The intent of the audio platform is for each author to show their personality through their words and conversation. The more an author publishes content on the National Fire Radio Training Partners channel, the more the NFR community will get to know them. This will help in building awareness about yourself, the training company you represent or anything specific you want to get across.
