How to Get Involved

Contribute Content

Anyone can contribute articles to Radio Free. We ask that you first read this Get Involved guide first before you submit work, so that you may better understand our basic journalistic principals and Community Guidelines. If you ever have questions that can’t be answered by a quick web search, you are always free to email info@radiofree.org for support.

To contribute a post, create an account on radiofree.org/join and then click on "Posts" once you’ve logged. There, you can add a new post using the WordPress editor. Your posts will go to an editor for review after submission. We try to keep the review process short, but review times may vary depending on many contributing factors. It’s easier than you think to contribute to the daily news. Anyone, of any age, of any background, at any skill level can contribute an article. We only require passionate, thoughtful people who can share their perspectives of the world with others. We value the role music, art, and other forms of expression have on journalism. We allow all forms of expression as content, as we fundamentally understand the role of the media to be that of a mediator rather than an gatekeeper of knowledge.

Print the News

We always need volunteers to print and post news in communities around the world. At the bottom of every news post, you’ll see a “Print” button. If you click that button and then print that page, it will print out the standard Radio Free newspaper- including in-line citations. Please feel free to use this feature to print out daily news in your community that is being under-reported. Leave copies in cafes, waiting rooms, break rooms, bookstores, trains, bulletin boards, or even on walls as wheat pastings. You can print these on regular paper with any printer and disseminate need to make a positive impact in your community.

Develop

We are always in need of web and app developers to volunteer by building opensource tools for journalists and publishers. Post ideas in the Discussion chat to get feedback from users, or go rouge and present a finished concept for something you’d like us to maintain and host. We are currently looking for developers of all skill-sets and abilities.

Translate

Translating and transcribing the news is one of the easiest ways to get started. If you speak multiple languages, we would love your help translating news posts and pages on our website to any language.

Activism

Contribute your knowledge to help teach others about Activism.
