Submissions

If you’re interested in developing articles, blog posts or multimedia for Waging Nonviolence, please send us a query briefly describing the story and telling us a bit about yourself. All original content will go through our collaborative editorial process. We pay fixed rates for reported articles and multimedia, and though generally we do not pay for opinion and analysis, we welcome them. In keeping with our mission to develop innovative news and analysis on nonviolent conflict, WNV does not republish previously published content. We do, however, direct our readers to relevant content published elsewhere through our Experiments With Truth section, and we always welcome tips.

We prefer stories that are timely, pertaining to breaking news and ongoing events in which ordinary people are finding nonviolent means of building power. Stories generally should address questions of strategy and tactics, while also being attentive to relevant concerns of culture, technology, history and the natural environment. We strive to highlight the voices of under-represented and traditionally marginalized peoples.

After being published at WNV, unless otherwise noted, our content falls under a Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 license, which permits reuse and adaptation with attribution to WNV and the author. We work to ensure that our content is distributed as widely as possible through republication and readaptation, and we invite authors to collaborate in helping the stories they publish with us spread.

We invite all readers and contributors to add to the conversation at WNV by posting substantive responses in the comments.
