A Guide for Contributors
Because this blog aims to encourage dialogue, we welcome unsolicited guest posts. If you would like to submit a post for consideration, please review our “ABOUT” and “EXHIBIT” pages, as well as the information and instructions below.
Topics for guest posts may include: personal narratives about race and racism; reflections on current trends in race relations; reviews of related events, exhibits, or publications; descriptison of inpsiring or powerful work being done to address the issues; or something else you’d like to say about race, art, youth, or some combination of the three. We are particularly interested in stories or ideas that make us think about race in a new way.
Your post should be:
- Relevant to issues of race in the 21st century.
- Well-written and factually accurate.
Your own original work.
- No more than 1000 words long (shorter is fine!)
Please email your post as a Word document to firstname.lastname@example.org. Use the subject line: “Blog Post: [post title], [your name].” Include a brief author bio (2-3 sentences max). If your post includes images, attach them separately in JPG format. You are responsible for ensuring that we have permission to publish any images included in your post.
If a version of your post has been published elsewhere, please provide a link. We may choose to direct our readers to the original piece on our “RESOURCES” page or in a separate post.
If your post is accepted, you will be notified by e-mail before publication. Due to limited staff capacity, we cannot respond to inquiries about blog posts under consideration. Thank you for understanding.
