Unbossed is recruiting new contributing writers to join our fabulous staff!
This is an open call for bloggers to post a maximum 500-word treatise on the public policy issue of his/her choice.
What are you passionate about? Are there particular concerns that you want to promote? Do you have a new perspective on an issue that has been little explored in the mainstream press or blogosphere?
Judging criteria include:
- Only original work by the author will be considered, though it may have
been previously posted/published elsewhere
- Thorough fact checking
- Broadly sourced and linked citations (Check out the Webmonkey Cheat
Sheet if you need HTML code help)
- Free of grammatical errors
- Quality of analysis
- Quality of content and style
- Political ideology is at the discretion of the writer
The winners will have their essays promoted to the Unbossed front page during the week of March 6. Outstanding essayists will be extended an invitation to become an Unbossed contributing writer (front page poster for you Daily Kos fancypants).
Send your essay in an unmarked brown wrapper contained in the body of an email (NO ATTACHMENTS!) to em dash by Sunday, March 5.
Good luck, comrades!
