Additions and updates to Waging Nonviolence

    First off, thanks to everyone who has made this site a frequent read. We are now eight months old and the number of regular visitors keeps increasing, which makes us all the more committed to providing new content every day. We’ve published nearly 400 posts and we keep meeting more and more people who want to contribute content.

    All this work and support has really helped us hone our vision. So, recently, we decided it was time to update our About page with a clearer description of the site, as well as add several new pages to better connect with readers and expand our network.

    We now have Writer’s Guidelines for those interesting in becoming contributors, a Classroom Guide for teachers and professors, and an Internship Announcement for students, recent grads, or young journalists interested in working with us. So please look them over and let us know if you have any questions or comments.
