If you haven’t gotten to all of your professional plans for 2020 yet, you may be feeling the pressure. But GovLoop has an opportunity for you.
There are over 300,000 of you — government employees, industry partners and knowledge experts — who are extremely engaged. Many of you are also prolific GovLoop writers. You write about everything from how to drive smart cities, to best leadership practices, to innovation in government. We here at GovLoop love your articles – we’re sort of obsessed with them, actually – and look forward to the new, great contributions we know we’ll be seeing every day.
And it’s exactly because your contributions to GovLoop are so terrific, and so valuable, that we’re looking to expand on them. Today, we’re announcing the 22nd round of the GovLoop Featured Contributor Program.
We’ve already had a very successful 21 runs of this program with nearly 320 amazing GovLoop Featured Contributors (whose posts you can read here). We’re looking to keep the momentum going with new voices who can write about everything from the best way to hold a meeting in the government to how to create the most effective data strategy for your teams.
The details: We’re looking for 15 (or more!) great GovLoop voices to write once a week for the GovLoop community starting from late February for 12 weeks into early May 2020. We want you to write about subjects you think are important — from experiences at your agency, to the way automation is impacting your job, to tips on how to increase fed engagement — really, anything that inspires you. If it’s important to you, it’s important to us and we want it on GovLoop.
What’s in it for you? In addition to having your articles read by our community of 300,000, you’ll get:
- A featured homepage slot on GovLoop every time you post
- Promotion of your posts to our social network communities (and we’ll promote your Twitter handles, too)
- Recognition of your efforts and status via a special GovLoop Featured Contributor banner
- A package of free GovLoop swag (t-shirts, stickers and more)
- Published articles and a great line on your resume
- Feedback, writing tips and blog guidance with bi-weekly metrics reports for top trending articles
If you want to be a part of this prestigious program, it’s easy. All you have to do is email the Featured Contributors program coordinator, Catherine, here, with three blog post ideas, a writing sample and your resume. Please use the subject line “GovLoop Featured Contributor.” Applications will close on Friday, Feb. 14.
Any questions? Leave a comment on this post, or tweet @GovLoop. We look forward to your ideas, contributions and content. The deadline is the morning of February 7th.
