Happy new year, an exciting announcement & a call for submissions

This letter was originally sent to subscribers of my Medium Publication, Future of Work Monthly – click here to check it out.

Happy new year!!!

I hope 2016 brings you success and happiness.

2015 was an amazing year for me. I started my blog, had articles published in Business Insider, Fridge Magazine and Lifehack.org (and turned down numerous requests to write for other online publications), started an email newsletter called The Monthly Review and joined and started publishing articles on Medium.

As my email newsletter’s audience grew I added and tested different elements like a monthly productivity hack, book recommendations and a short list of 3–4 of my favourite articles from around the web.

Towards the end of 2015 I did an analysis of which elements of The Monthly Review were most popular and touched base with a few subscribers to get their views on what they liked and what could be improved.

As it turns out subscribers most liked my curated list of articles.

As the saying goes, ‘give the people what they want’. So I’m proud and excited to announce a new direction for both my newsletter and this Medium publication.

Introducing ‘Future of Work Monthly’

In about a week I’ll send out the first ever issue of Future of Work Monthly (note: I’ve sent out the first issue since publishing this post first on Medium – click here to have a read) — a curated monthly email newsletter with links to inspiring, practical and tactical articles, stories and resources for people who want to build a successful career or an amazing business (click here to sign up).

Likewise, this Medium publication which was once The Monthly Review has been rebranded as Future of Work Monthly. To date, this Medium publication has only featured my own work, but that’s about to change!

I’m excited to announce that I’m now calling for submissions from other writers.

A Call for Submissions

Each month I’ll be looking for two to three fresh, interesting, engaging articles to feature in the Future of Work Monthly Medium publication. These articles will also be featured in the Future of Work Monthly email newsletter.

I’m looking for articles about productivity, collaboration, leadership, culture, technology, creativity, remote working, entrepreneurship and lifestyle design that can help readers build a successful career or an amazing business.

Articles can be in any format (eg. listicle, essay) and there is no word minimum or maximum. I only ask that submissions are high quality, engaging content.

To submit articles for consideration email me at ryanjrwiggins@gmail.com. Include your article in the body of the email. Do not submit your article as an attachment or a link. Once I receive your submission, I’ll be back in touch within two weeks to let you know if your article will be published or not.

Thank you so much for following Future of Work Monthly. If you’re interested in joining the Future of Work Monthly email newsletter (I highly recommend it), just click here and enter your email address.

Be awesome.
