Make a Pitch

A pitch is a proposal for an article relevant to the future of computing.

You can make a pitch for any of the Ubiquity article types:

  • Commentaries: analytic, opinion, or tutorial commentaries
    – analyzing an issue, examining trends, rethinking something
    – well grounded and defended opinions on a topic of interest in the next 1-5 years
    – explaining a complex issue to a lay audience
  • Symposia – suggestions for organizing a symposium on a topic
  • Interviews – a conversation with someone who is shaping the future, including innovation leaders.
  • Blogs – explore the influence of computing technology and policies and practices. 

For guidance on making a good pitch, see Phil Yaffe's "Three Acid Tests of Persuasive Writing."
