Looking to write for MSDN?

Someone recently asked me for our template, style guidelines and other details about writing for MSDN. I wanted to find the public page about this, so I dug around for what seemed like ages and couldn’t find anything even though I knew this was up on MSDN somewhere.

Eventually, I resorted to search and tracked it down at http://msdn.microsoft.com/aboutmsdn/submit.asp. Since it was so hard for me to find, I thought I should bubble it up to the front page of VB and C#, in case anyone else is looking for it 🙂

Update: Stephen Toub from MSDN Magazine just sent me the corresponding link for submissions to their publication… http://msdn.microsoft.com/msdnmag/submit.aspx

Another Update: For some reason, this posts gets a lot of comments from people looking for a free download of MSDN. That is not what this post is about, it is about writing articles for MSDN. Go ahead and ask for a free copy of MSDN, I’m just going to ignore it…. that isn’t something I can provide.

  1. Hi,
    The hyperlink for the submissions to MSDN mag has an extra word “Another” at the end of the link.
    This causes it to 404 when clicked, though copy paste works.
