The Service Women’s Action Network (SWAN) seeks blog contributors for About Face, an online community supporting military women.

Blog contributors will research current news and issues surrounding women and gender in the military, sexual assault and intimate partner violence in the military, the Department of Veterans Affairs, military families, veteran’s health and mental health issues, etc. and summarize this research in at least two well-written, exciting blog posts per week.

Blog contributors will also participate in discussion on the blog, facebook and twitter, reach out to other relevant blogs to create contacts and cross post stories.

Blog contributors should be creative, motivated, experienced or have a demonstrated interested in blog writing and social media development.

Blog contributors will report to the Executive Assistant and be available for phone or face-to-face staff meetings at least every other week.

No compensation is currently available, but successful blog contributors may have the opportunity to become paid employees or interns for SWAN. In addition, blog contributors will have authorship on their blogs and gain valuable research and writing experience.

We ask for a minimum of a 3-month commitment, after which we will be able to give a letter of recommendation.
