If you’re not interested but think some of your followers may be, please do us a huge favor and reblog this!
We’re current looking for contributors to help us reach out to young progressives! We’ve solved our editorial staffing problems, and are looking to get active again.
This is a chance to broadcast your thoughts to the world and influence the direction of the political discussion. Writers will be compensated, but don’t apply if money is what you’re worried about — it will likely take a few monthsfor articles to start earning appreciable income, and that’s assuming the same levels of success we’ve achieved before.
We are mostly looking for writers right now, although we will also be looking to create promotional images (are you good at making memes? We might have a spot for you), or other forms of media. If you’re interested in social justice and building an online writing portfolio, this is for you!
If you’re interested in becoming a contributor, please email a bio of yourself and a sample writing piece to Justin.Acuff@youngprogressivevoices.net. Feel free to include why you’re interested and what you’re interested in writing about. Relaunch is July 28th.
Sometimes people ask me how they can get involved with the glamorous world of political bloggin’. This would be a great way to start!
