Writing Makes You Smarter- So Consider Writing for 
The Property Professional!

I recently read an article in Inc. magazine titled “Writing More Will Make You Smarter.” The author argues that everyone is full of ideas they aren’t aware of, and the only way to really take the time to understand them is to write them out. One of the main reasons that I write is for a very similar reason- I believe it keeps me “sharp”. The author’s perspective made sense to me, and I immediately thought of our authors of The Property Professional

We are fortunate to have fantastic writers in NPMA who provide varied points of view on interesting and diverse topics. This helps keep The Property Professional compelling and informative. We are always looking for new writers, too, who provide fresh points of view on topics relevant to our asset and fleet management industry. 

If you haven’t considered writing for The Property Professional you should! Think you have an interesting idea or point-of-view but not sure where to start? Or are you interested in writing but have no idea how to develop a topic or how to create an outline that will help you begin writing? Reach out to us at The Property Professional because we can help! We regularly work with our authors to define topics, compile writing outlines, and provide input and advice that leads to a strong and compelling published article. 

To begin the conversation, reach out to Meg Lombardo, our Managing Editor, and set up a time to talk. You have an interesting perspective- so why not share it?
