Thank you for your interest in writing for Fueled by Coffee and Love! We have had over 80 authors from all around the world contribute stories to Fueled by Coffee and Love and Fueled by Coffee and Love: The Refill (July 2018).

Story Guidelines

  • 1000-1500 words
  • Focus on a single story, student, or event. Emphasize the impact on you as an educator, as a human, and/or on your teaching practice.
  • Be yourself! It’s your story, tell it however you’d like.
  • Writing is more formal than a conversational blog post and less formal than an academic paper. (Please limit the use of … and !!!!)
  • Change any names or other identifying details, where necessary.
