Global Voices depends on a team of incredible volunteer authors to report on the daily conversations occurring in blogging communities around the world.
What's it all about?
Global Voices authors don't write opinion pieces or first-hand citizen journalism. They report on conversations happening on blogs and citizen media all over the world, with emphasis on voices that are not ordinarily heard in international mainstream media. They aren't paid – it's all done by an amazing team of international volunteers.
What kind of people become Global Voices authors?
Millions of people are blogging, podcasting, and uploading photos, videos, and information across the globe, but unless you know where to look, it can be difficult to find respected and credible voices. Our international team of volunteer authors are active participants in the blogospheres they write about on Global Voices.
Most authors utilise social media themselves, with their own blog, Twitter accounts, etc. You don't have to be a professional journalist, but you do need to be passionate about what we do and good at writing interesting, informative and accurate articles, and working as part of an international team.
