Are you interested in sharing your experiences with autism with others through writing? If so, OAR is seeking guest writing contributors for its blog on the Operation Autism Web site, and on the soon to be released Hire Autism Web site! Our hope is that the stories, dialogue, resources, and advice shared through the blog may be an added source of support for autism families. If you are interested in contributing a post, or series of posts to the OAR blog, please let us know! Self-advocates, siblings, parents, caregivers, educators, and autism professionals are welcome to apply.
Write 500-750 word blog entries for OAR’s main blog or Hire Autism blog. Entries on OAR’s main blog may be on any topic related to your personal or professional experience with autism, including parenting, education, transition, sibling perspectives, the military, and much more. Hire Autism blog topics are restricted to areas related to adult employment. All topic proposals are subject to OAR approval. Contributors are also required to submit a short author bio and accompanying photo. Contributors may request anonymity via a pseudonym if desired.
OAR estimates that blog contributions, including edits, may take anywhere from 2-6 hours per entry. Blog contributors may contribute on a one-time basis, or propose a blog series. Blog series typically contain 4-7 entries. This is a flexible position that requires no travel.
