Editors from major EMS publications have asked me to be on the lookout for “new, up and coming EMS authors.” Regular contributions to leading online EMS publications is a great opportunity for you to:
- refine your communication skills
- introduce your experience and niche expertise to an international audience
- help move the EMS profession forward
In my opinion the number one skill for a regular/contributing author is to be a “closer” which means you deliver the expected contribution on time.
The first step to getting started is to pick a niche or area where you want to focus your writing.
- Is it tips for EMT basics?
- Book, app, or course reviews?
- Profile innovative programs sin EMS like community paramedicine or other pilot projects?
- Educator how-to? Anatomy and physiology of body systems?
Pick an area of focus and start writing.
Maybe one of these posts from the Everyday EMS Tips archives will help you get started:
