Interested in becoming a regular contributor to Fourth Wave?

We’re looking for smart, culturally-savvy writers who are passionate about feminism and feminist issues to fill out our Fourth Wave line-up of bloggers. We’re especially looking for people (women and men!) interested in posting on the topics listed below, but if you’re interested in something not on this list, feel free to suggest something.
  • Art
  • Economics/Business
  • Education
  • Family/Children
  • Film
  • Gay/Lesbian/Transgender
  • Global Issues
  • Journalism/Media
  • Law/Crime/Enforcement
  • Literature/Poetry
  • Medicine/Science
  • Military
  • Music
  • Performance/Theatre
  • Race
  • Religion
  • Sports
  • Technology/New Media

To apply to become a Fourth Wave contributor, please send an email to fourthwave[dot]feminism[at]gmail[dot]com and include the following:
  1. a list of 2-4 topics (ranked in order of preference) about which you’d like to blog
  2. a brief description of why you’re interested in becoming a contributor
  3. a list of other blogs you currently write for (if applicable) OR a list of blogs you regularly read
  4. 1 or 2 short writing samples (1000 word maximum)
This is a volunteer position only, but we will ask that contributors commit to posting at least 3-4 times per month. If you were looking for a paid position, sorry. No one gets paid here at Fourth Wave Feminism. We’re just a group of people invested in creating an intellectually-stimulating and productive place to discuss the state of feminism in contemporary culture. But you can definitely put us on your résumé!

I think this is a great idea for a blog! I definitely don't have time to be a regular contributor, but would be happy to be a guest blogger if you ever need it.

I look forward to reading more posts.
