Contributors can also share opinion pieces and Op-eds for publications. People from all walks of life can share their thoughts on African women and media as contributors and do not need journalism experience for this.
Contributors should, however, note that opinion pieces are unpaid. Their work will be promoted on AWiM’s weekly newsletters and social media accounts.
CRITERIA FOR ALL SUBMISSIONS
Submissions must pertain to African women and the media and must be between 500 -1500 words.
