Write for the blog


Do you want to add your voice to the development debate? Then why not write for the Development in Action blog?

Now in its fifth year, the Blog provides a stimulating yet supportive online space in which to discuss current events and trends in international development. Through it we hope to engage young people in global issues and promote global citizenship.

Our recent writers are budding journalists, students, and early-career development professionals, but we welcome contributions from anyone who has something unique to say about the global issues of our world today. Whether an article, interview, book-review or infographic, if you have an interesting perspective to share, we’re interested in hearing from you! You get the opportunity to work with an editor, share your ideas and expose your work to a 1,500+ readership.


We are currently looking for two types of contributors:

1) Regular contributors
We expect a minimum commitment of one blog a month which can take any of the forms we mentioned above. We have a ‘regular contributor’ section on our website which will feature a picture of you and a brief bio which is a great way to get yourself some publicity!

2) Guest contributors
We are always on the look out for people with passion and if you have a desire to write about any issue close to your heart but cannot commit to our regular contributor programme then this is the opportunity for you.

If you would be interested in blogging for DiA, please write to us at jennifer@developmentinaction.org. We look forward to hearing your ideas!
