We hear all the time from people across the country that love the YNPN-TC blog, so this is a great opportunity to get your name and ideas in front of a whole variety of people.
Still undecided? Here are answers to some of the questions we most often get:
What Would I Write About?
It is up to you. We first ask writers to consider writing a blog related to one of the four priorities of the YNPN-TC Strategic Plan:
- Innovative Thought Leadership and Sector-Shaping
- Creating Fiscal Sustainability
- Engaged and Mobilized Membership
- Diversity, Inclusion & Access
If none of those topics get your creative juices going, however, feel free to write about anything connected to the professional lives of young nonprofit professionals. Don’t worry; you don’t have to know what you want to write about now, but if you do, please mention that on the signup form.
How Long Does It Have to Be?
We recommend between 400-800 words, but as long as it is great, we accept items above or below that. The editors may also make suggestions for things to cut or add.
Do I Have to Write the Blog All By Myself? What If I Want Help?
YNPN-TC is lucky to have an awesome group of Blog Editors. One of them will reach out to you two to three weeks before your blog’s publication date to remind you and offer assistance. They are happy to read drafts of your work and make suggestions.
When Would I Write A Blog?
We are currently creating a new Blog Schedule that will run from December 2015 to June 2016. By signing up now, you would agree to write one blog in that time frame. When signing up, you can indicate if there are times that are good or bad for you, and we can make alternative arrangements if your assigned time doesn’t work.
Where Can I Ask Another Question?
Thank you to all of of the people who make the YNPN-TC blog as wonderful as it is, especially our great team of editors (Azra Thakur, Derek Hersch, Emma Theis, and Marie-Sophie Ritter).
