Achshav Submission Guidelines
Achshav, USY’s (USCJ’s youth movement) blog, is the place where we showcase you, the USYers, and your experiences, thoughts, and creativity. Our articles cover stories from USYers across regions, chapters, grades, and leadership titles (or lack thereof), and capture the fun and meaning of USY.
Achshav was created by teens for teens, so submissions should be in your voice- positive, fun, passionate, and entertaining. We are looking for different content (with accompanying photos) including, but not limited to news, memoirs, artwork, and profiles. For more information on the different blog sections, click here.
Photo and video submissions are encouraged. We can not and will not accept any vertically shot video. Please shoot horizontally.
Please proofread and edit submissions before sending them in and make sure that you have read over our style guidelines. Additionally, if you are featuring a fellow USYer in your article, photo, video, etc., secure their permission first.
Submissions of any length will be accepted. If you’d like to submit content, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please review our style guide before submitting.
NOTE: Please refrain from submitting content that is polarizing or controversial. The mission of Achshav is to bring people together. Make sure that your content is appropriate for all readers and in line with the USY Code of Conduct.
We look forward to reviewing your submissions!
