We ask that informational texts be between 500 and 1,500 words, with up to five informational texts per submission. Please submit all materials in one document and include publication information for any previously published material.

Our greatest need is for lower grade informational texts that are compelling to the intended age group. Overall, we look for texts that exemplify quality writing and engaging subject matter.

All submissions must be appropriate for testing. Submissions that include inappropriate language or references to drugs, sex, alcohol, gambling, holidays, religion, or violence will not be considered.

Please include details of any affiliation with the University of Kansas in your submission bio.

If sources were used to write the passage, please include a bibliography. If your work is accepted, you may be required to provide a more detailed account of sources, as well as scanned pages of any books used.
