Africa seeks aspiring journalists, civil society professionals, and educators with a passion for social media, demonstrated interest and awareness of African affairs and US-Africa relations, love for crafting stories, and trying out new and innovative uses of technology for journalistic purposes.
We are looking to post compelling content, and would like to find bloggers who are ideas driven, creative, and ready to roll up their sleeves and write. We are open to your ideas for stories, particularly on content related to energy, business, investment, trade, education, health, civil society/ NGO related initiatives, women’s issues, ICT and how the internet is affecting the development of Africa’s economy.
Bloggers will also be encouraged to write stories or share content related to Africa related events and happenings that take place at around Metro Denver area or globally.
Content writers will be asked to write a minimum of two stories/month. Editorial meetings will take place once a week on Tuesdays from 5-6 pm at Posner Center and volunteers are requested to attend them - either virtually or in person. Meetings will be used for planning, storyboarding, checking-in, getting peer feedback, and developing a team atmosphere.
