Welcome to the District 83 Blog

Dear D83 Toastmasters,

This is your blog. The goal is to create a place to share our Toastmasters ideas and experiences. We will be happy to publish your submissions as long as they meet the guidelines explained below.

D83 Blog Guidelines

  • All posts must be Toastmasters related.
    • Articles should be on club events, public speaking, leadership, your Toastmasters experience, or ideas on how to grow your club.
    • Other articles may be considered.
  • Submissions must be professional. No cursing or inappropriate subjects. If you wouldn’t say it in a meeting, don’t write a Toastmasters’ blog post about it.
  • Editors will approve all submissions before publishing. They have the right to refuse to publish an article and will provide feedback.
  • Keep articles to a maximum of 500 words. Longer articles will only be considered if they are compelling and well-organized.
  • If the editors feel a submission is a better fit for the newsletter, they will pass it on to the newsletter editors, Janette Alexander and Jen Fredericks. If the newsletter editors decide not to publish the article, then the blog will post it.
  • Don’t be afraid to try something new. You don’t have to be a journalist to submit. We will be happy to work with you through the writing process.
