cylindr is about meeting and learning from individuals and organizations dedicated to making the world better.
Of course, cylindr alone could never identify all the advocates taking on the world’s myriad challenges. So, this is your invitation to share your work or to suggest others!
To submit your interview (or to suggest someone else), pop it in an email to email@example.com. The basic ground rules are as follows….
Interview (required): Make it as personal as you can. Share your passion! The standard prompts are –
- Where are you from, and why there?
- Which issue(s) do you work on/care about, and why?
- How did you get involved?
- What’s the biggest challenge for the issue(s) today?
- Who are your most frequent allies? Any surprises?
- What drives you?
- What do you want your career/advocacy to stand for?
Article (optional): Give us the scoop on any public-interest topic in which you have experience and expertise. It can be original to cylindr (preferred) or previously published elsewhere (we’ll reproduce it here and link to the original). The length should be right around 1,000 words – juicy but also digestible. If you can stir in thoughts or advice about related advocacy challenges you’ve encountered, strategies you’ve developed, etc., even better. Multiple articles over time are welcome – add to your ‘cylindr’!
Both: No ad hominem language permitted (tempting though it may be). Profanity is acceptable (damn right) if contextual and not gratuitous (like that kinda was). And a sense of ironical humor to lighten a heavy load is always welcome. Also, please limit use of external links so readers can stay focused on your message.
Naturally, cylindr reserves the right to edit and publish (or not publish) all content, subject to the author’s prior review and approval of any edits.
