SlaveFree Today and the Journal of Modern Slavery are launching a blog. The blog will feature evocative, fresh and thought-provoking perspectives about emerging and interesting actions being taken around the world to eliminate modern slavery. We are seeking new and young voices to join the conversation. We are accepting submissions on a rolling basis.

The SlaveFree Today Blog is an extension of The Journal of Modern Slavery and its publisher SlaveFree Today.

Length: average 800-1500 words
Title & Name: At the top of your blog include a tentative title and your name as you wish it to appear in the byline.

Referencing: For each blog, where available, authors are encouraged to include a brief annotated list of useful websites, recommended reading and other resources, ideally those also available online.

Style: Blog articles should be written in an accessible, journalistic style — clear, lively and concise — rather than with academic formality. However, sources must be cited as footnotes or within the text. Accurate references should be linked within the text of the article.

Images: Send illustrations as 72 dpi JPG, PNG or TIF files, along with detailed caption and credit information. You must include documentation of copyright status of a graphic or image or direct permission from the owner or creator of the image for use without payment or royalty. Images will be included at the discretion of the editor and may be cropped to fit our page template.

Author Byline: Please include a one- to two-sentence biographical statement at the end of the text, along with any links to your website, blog, email or other social media profile that you wish to include.

Guest Blogs are one-off blog posts that can be about anything you wish, so long as it has a tie-in to modern slavery, human trafficking or forced labor.

All submissions subject to editorial selection process
