Write for php[architect]

Writing for php[architect] is a great rewarding experience: the names of most of the “bigs” in the PHP world have appeared in the masthead of our publication through the year, and each copy of php[architect] reaches thousands of people worldwide.

Monthly Magazine

Generally speaking, php|architect publishes articles written for developers, by developers. If you write an article about a topic that you would like to hear about yourself, chances are that we want to publish it.

If you want to write for our magazine, the best thing to do is to take a look at our Editorial Guidelines and then e-mail with a proposal. Your proposal should include:

  • Your legal name as it should appear on the contract
  • Your name as you’d like it to appear in the magazine
  • Your postal mailing address
  • Your preferred phone number
  • Your preferred e-mail address
  • Your Twitter handle
  • A tentative title for your article (can be changed later)
  • The date you will be able to deliver the completed article
  • If you are interested in publishing your article in a certain issue, please let us know which issue
  • An outline of what you will cover/discuss in your article
  • A short bio about you and your qualifications
  • A headshot that we can print along with your bio

This way, we can let you know whether we think that a finished article would be of interest to us, or perhaps suggest some possible improvements to your idea. It helps if your article fits somewhere in our editorial calendar, but don’t hesitate to send us an idea if it doesn’t—the spots for our planned articles fill up quickly, so it’s always good to have extra ideas on hand.
