We’re always interested in hearing from developers, designers, content creators, and digital makers who want to write about the latest and most impactful technologies. Get in touch via our pitch form.

We’re especially interested in helping people understand the next wave of web technologies, such as Jamstack workflows and tools like Gatsby and Eleventy to Deno, Rust, WebAssembly, and beyond.

Beyond code, our audience includes designers, as well as developers who want to become more skilled at design. We’re actively looking for content on Figma, as well as Adobe XD, Sketch, InVision Studio, the surrounding ecosystems, new presentation technologies like variable fonts, and the application of design principles to new mediums and interface paradigms.

We also know that development, design, and content work are all forms of knowledge work. To that end, we want to help readers learn how to use knowledge, thought, and productivity tools like Notion, Roam Research, Foam, Obsidian, and Airtable to their full potential. Similarly, we want to show people how to automate more of their personal lives and workflows using tools like Zapier and iOS Shortcuts.

Finally, we believe that the future of the web and its health are vital to the future of human civilization and its health. If you have something to say about the future of the web and the state of the technology industry, we invite you to get in touch. We also want to help makers put these ideas into action. To that end, we’re interested in more content on how Web 2.0 makers can get involved with Web3 technology, and how we can implement more IndieWeb and Fediverse design philosophy by building decentralized, federated structures into software.

There’s something here for everyone. We only ask that you bring your biggest ideas. If there’s a voice of self-doubt stopping you from submitting a pitch, please ignore it — I guarantee we’ve published work from people with less experience than you on a subject you’re passionate about, and in my experience, that voice is a pretty good sign you’ve thought things through more than the people who will pitch regardless. Become the counterweight to moving fast and breaking things.

We’re more interested in publishing big ideas imperfectly written than safe content polished to a shine (and we’ll help you polish those big ideas regardless).

See you on the other side:

Invoicing SitePoint

We love our writers and editors, and we also love paying everyone on time. To make sure that your payment is processed as quickly as possible, please submit your invoice to finance@sitepoint.com with all of the required information, within 90 days of your article being published. Invoices received after this time will not be paid.

Do not use the finance email address to pitch articles. It will not get to the editorial team. Use the link in the first paragraph.

Not sure how to create an invoice? Here’s a free template.

If you are unsure of how much you should invoice for an article then please contact your editor.

Your invoice must include:

  • Your name, as displayed on your article.
  • Your business’s name, if applicable
  • A unique invoice number
  • The date of your invoice
  • Your address, or business address
  • Your PayPal address
  • An itemized list of articles, with URLs (these must be the published URLs, if you submit an article preview URL your invoice will not be paid) and channel (eg. Design & UX, HTML & CSS, Ruby, etc.)

If applicable please include a Value Added Tax Identification Number (eg. ABN / VAT Reg No / VAT TIN, etc). If you are an Australian resident, you must include your ABN on the invoice (even if you are a freelancer).

Payment Methods

Please include the necessary payment information. Payment options we provide include:

  • PayPal e-mail address
  • Bank Transfer (within Australia only)
  • SWIFT transfer by prior agreement with SitePoint. A $25 transaction fee applies.

Payment Dates

We don’t necessarily make PayPal payments on a specific day each week or fortnight as it is based on the volume of invoices that are submitted. Sometimes you may receive payment within a day or two, other times it will take a little longer. You can expect your PayPal payment to arrive within 14 business days.

Bank transfers and SWIFT payments are made approximately once every 14 business days. It can take an extra day for payments to appear in your account so you can expect payment within 15 business days.
