What should I know about Elevate style and writing requirements?
Articles should be written in a journalistic or literary style, aimed at the educated general reader with knowledge of and commitment to public health workforce development. However, because readers of a general audience might also read the publication, all terminology should be clear.
Articles and listings are not advertisements for content, events, trainings, organizations, or other resources, but they can highlight events. This is a fine line and may take some assessment on a case-by-case basis.
