Help us grow our database of solutions stories! Please enter the following information. Our staff will review the story, and if it meets our criteria (see below), it will be added to the Solutions Story Tracker™.

It may take a few weeks to see your piece in the Solutions Story Tracker™, as we have a backlog of submissions longer than Ben Hur that we’re diligently working to eliminate. We appreciate your patience.

SJN'S CRITERIA FOR GOOD SOLUTIONS JOURNALISM:
  • Can be character-driven, but focuses in-depth on a response to a problem.
  • Examine how the response works in meaningful detail.
  • Focuses on effectiveness, not good intentions, presenting available evidence of the results.
  • Discusses the limitations of the approach.
  • Seeks to provide insight that others can use.
  • Draws on sources with ground-level understanding.

Hearing from Hub members is the best part of our day after coffee.
