We're looking for some more writers to expand our team with.

Ever wanted to write news articles or blog posts that can change people's views? News items that receive little attention from major news services have a home here. Why don't you join us? You don't need to have any previous blogging skills, we'll send you a pack explaining everything, so it's open to everyone. Our blog is global, so location is not an issue.

Here are our only terms and conditions:
  1. Good spelling and grammar.
  2. You have to be able to make yourself clearly understood.
  3. Respect other peoples' opinions, but don't be afraid to touch on controversial topics.
  4. You need to be able to post once a week, on a day of your choice. There's nothing to stop you from working steadily on your article through the week and posting it when it's due. If there's something in the news that inspires you (and there's a load of LGBT news out there), write about it! It's easy enough to stick to a once-a-week schedule. You can of course, write more often than once a week, there's nothing stopping you, just let us know in your application.
  5. Your weekly posts have to come to approximately 700 - 1,000 words each. For an idea of length, see posts on the blog.
  6. If you're thinking of leaving the blog 2 months down the line, this is probably not for you. We're looking for people who are interested in keeping this up and who want to be part of a team, writing about QUILTBAG issues. You need to have the motivation to produce at least one post a week.
You'll get your own account on our blog with full privileges to post whenever you want, about any QUILTBAG-related topic you choose. If you're interested, contact the Freedom Requires Wings recruitment team by filling out the application form below.

Before you start, please prepare the following. We don't want to waste your time.
  • An example of your writing under the form of a 700 - 1,000 word article about the LGBTQIA topic of your choice.
  • A short 30 - 45 word bio.
  • Links to any previous blogging experiences, if any.
Filling out our application form takes about 10 minutes if you have your article prepared in advance.
