The Foreign Policy Association is currently seeking volunteer contributors to the Humanitarian section of its blog network, www.ForeignPolicyBlogs.com.

Foreign Policy Blogs is the largest network of global affairs blogs online. Staffed by scores of professional contributors from the worlds of journalism, academia, business, non-profits and think tanks, the FPB network tracks global developments from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe daily.

Contributors are sought for the following areas:

  • Development
  • Global Health
  • Women/Women in Foreign Policy
  • Human Rights
  • Children
  • War Crimes

Bloggers are expected to publish news-driven posts on their respective subjects once a week, and original analysis posts on a monthly basis. While all bloggers are volunteers, they are given the benefits of a national FPA membership, which includes all FPA publications, admission to many FPA events, and access to all parts of www.FPA.org.   Outstanding bloggers are given full support from FPA in other endeavors within the foreign policy community, including letters of support, press credentials for covering conferences and events as member of the media, and more.

 

The time commitment for bloggers is one year, with the possibility of an extension following the initial year.

 

Contributors should have 

  • Excellent writing and analytical skills
  • A minimum of two to three years of direct experience on the subject matter they are covering. 
  • Experience blogging or using Web publishing software and/or content management systems
  • A basic understanding of photo manipulation
  • The ability to commit to a volunteer project for a minimum of one year with at least weekly posts
  • Access to non-mainstream publications and experts on the subject they are covering
  • An understanding of social media

 

Posting is done remotely and there is no geographical limit to where bloggers must be. If interested, please send a cover letter, resume and two sample blogs posts along with links to existing blogs and/or online publications to bloggers@fpa.org by January 28, 2013 and mention that you saw this posting on PCDN.
