Write Stuff for Compose into 2018


We are inviting you to write about databases for Compose's Write Stuff. Write Stuff is our program where we ask you to share your knowledge of databases as a guest on our blog and earn yourself database credits and cash.

We created the Write Stuff program to help you turn what you know about databases into engaging and useful articles which we will publish on Compose Articles, our blog. Whether you're an old hand at writing or new to the entire thing, we are interested in what you know and helping you write about it.

We are looking for articles covering open-source databases, especially the ones that Compose carries - MongoDB, Redis, Elasticsearch, RethinkDB, etcd, Scylla, PostgreSQL, MySQL, and RabbitMQ. What do you know that could make an article?

And we particularly like articles that use a combination of databases together. Most importantly though, we want to know how you work with databases and what you think is important about them.

How to Write Stuff

Head over to the Write Stuff page and fill in the form there. The essential element is your outline for your article. Tell us what you want to write about so we can evaluate your idea. If we like it, we'll give you the go to write a 1500 word or more article on the subject. If you want it, we'll be there all the way offering advice and guidance for both new and experienced writers.

Once we've published your article, you'll get $200 cash and $200 Compose database credit. There'll also be some Compose swag for some lucky Write Stuffers.

But there's more. Write Stuff runs in cycles and the current cycle started on December 1st and runs through to February 28th. When that comes round we'll be evaluating which Write Stuff writer had the biggest impact on readers and giving a bonus of $500 cash to that writer.

So now is your chance to develop your writing skills, turn your hard-won knowledge of your preferred database into a shareable, valuable article and join the others who have worked to Write Stuff at Compose.
