Write for Gender Focus

Gender Focus welcomes submissions from guest bloggers of all gender identities, races and sexual orientations. You don’t have to be or identify as Canadian. As a Gender Focus guest blogger, you will have the opportunity to make your voice heard, create a useful resource for feminists, get out under-reported news and opinions on a variety of issues, share your experiences and perspectives, and gain valuable writing experience and feedback.

If you’re interested in contributing, send Jarrah and Lyndsay a short email at info@gender-focus.com to let us know who you are, if you have any blogging/writing experience or experience with feminist or progressive organizations, and what you’re interested in writing about. Please note that we cannot afford to pay contributors, as the blog collects no advertising or other revenues, but you will gain exposure for your writing, the opportunity to network with our other contributors, and feedback on your writing from our editors.

For reference, feminism is defined in this document and on the blog as a “movement to end sexism, sexual exploitation, and oppression”, including but not limited to oppression based on race, sexual/gender identity, disability, class and age.

Writing Guidelines

All blog items should be turned in via e-mail as a Microsoft Word or Google document (attach images to your e-mail) to info@gender-focus.com by a mutually agreed-upon deadline. If for any reason you cannot meet your committed deadline, please let us know in advance. If your post is accepted it will usually be posted within a few days of being received. We will edit blog submissions for grammar, spelling, and style and will re-submit edited articles to you for your final sign-off. All blog entries will be posted with the signature of the author — either your initials, first name, full name, or pseudonym if requested.
