Global Voices Online - The world is talking. Are you listening?
We'd like to invite you to become one of our featured writers. Featured writers have their own page on our site listing their past stories, along with a short bio. When they submit stories, their pictures will be published on our main page, a defining feature of our site.

Though we have more than 3,000 citizen reporters in over 110 countries, featured writers are a select few -- about 20. They are highly committed to our site by sending solid stories at a consistent rate.

The selection process may appear somewhat subjective, but our editors are doing their best to review submissions closely and accurately.

Here's a tip:
To catch the eye of the editors, you'll need to show an ability to convey complex topics with clear analysis. An easy-to-read, distinctive voice is also essential. Featured writers' stories tend to be longer than 600 words.
