Write for Dataquest!

The Dataquest blog is read by over 100,000 readers each month — this is an opportunity for you to get your work seen, and grow your platform.


The Community Writers Program is meant to be a way for interested students to get some writing experience and share their expertise with a wide audience. You don't have to be a Dataquest student to sign up, but note that we do give preference to our students and this program is meant primarily as an opportunity for them.

You don't have to be a professional writer to join our Community Writers Program. We will work with you to revise, refine, and publish your post to share with our community.

We will pay you US$200 for each published technical blog post and US$100 for each published non-technical blog post.

How it works

  1. Choose a topic from our list of suggestions, or come up with your own.
  2. Start writing.
  3. Receive feedback.
  4. Get published and get paid!

You'll need

  • Good written English.
  • The ability to explain things clearly.
  • Some previous experience in writing tutorials or technical overviews.
  • Some background on the subject you're willing to write about.

How to start

If you'd like to join the program, simply fill out the survey below. You'll need to provide your name, email address, and a link to a writing sample (please do not paste a sample directly into the form).

Fill Out the Survey

If you have trouble accessing the form, contact hello@dataquest.io. Otherwise, we just ask that you be patient - we have a lot of students who want to write, and there's a big line, so you may not hear back from us right away.
