Last year, Stop Street Harassment launched a Blog Correspondents Program with two cohorts. In 2014, we’re revising it a bit and will have three cohorts of correspondents. The members of each cohort will write four total posts, one per month (cohort 1: Jan. – April, cohort 2: May – Aug., cohort 3: Sept. – Dec.).
SSH is accepting applications for the first cohort. This is an unpaid, volunteer opportunity and is a great resume builder and chance to make a difference on an important global topic! And your words will be read: the SSH blog has tens of thousands of readers each month.
From January to April, correspondents in the first cohort must commit to writing one blog post per month about street harassment issues in their community, region or country, four posts total. The topics could include incidents of street harassment, activism to stop it, and street harassment in popular culture, traditions or the news.
We aim to have geographic diversity among our cohort members.
By January 6, 2014, please e-mail: 1) your name, 2) the region of the world or the USA where you’re from, 3) a writing sample of a blog post or article (in the range of 500-1000 words), and 4) a few sentences about why you want to be part of the Stop Street Harassment team.
If you prefer to write in a language other than English, please also indicate what language is most comfortable for you and you can send your writing sample in that language.
