Submit an Article - Health Progress

Health Progress, the journal of the Catholic Health Association, is seeking article proposals (as well as ideas, thoughts, concerns) for features, analyses or "think pieces."

Please note that in some cases articles will be assigned to outside writers; in other cases, we will invite representatives of CHA member systems, hospitals or other facilities to write articles based on submitted proposals. Limited editorial support will be available to writers. Please be sure to read the note below.

Please submit a proposal for an article highlighting your organization's work to [email protected].*

* Please Note: If you care to submit proposals on any topic, kindly do so by completing a proposal form. Because we have a small staff, we may be unable to respond to all proposals, or communications requesting information about writing for Health Progress.

To answer one frequent question: Our articles usually range in length from 1,500 to 4,000 words, with a common length being around 2,000 words. The preferred length depends on the topic and is worked out with writers when an article is assigned. Instead of asking us how long a proposed article should be, please ask yourself: About how many words, or pages, do I estimate it will take to tell our story? We will offer guidance to writers about targeting content to our readers once articles have been assigned.
