New Year, New Opportunity for Bloggers, Knowledge Geeks and Others Who Can Write

Hey, the Biofortified Blog is seeking articles written by scientists, doctors, farmers, chefs, and anyone who eats food. This opportunity is open to anyone, no matter your views. The public needs people with first-hand knowledge and this gives people the opportunity to write about what they know, engage in a moderated discussion, and be part of a community of writers and readers that want to give these topics the attention they deserve.

We have a wide reach, with a network of scientists, science enthusiasts, and more who seek out our content. We will post and promote your work on social media and can help you build your personal brand as a writer while you write with us. Some of our writers have gone on to start their own successful projects and organizations.

Here are some of the topics that the Biofortified Blog is seeking:

*Plants, genetics, biotechnology. If you are a plant scientist, geneticist, breeder, or other scientist with expertise in this area, you could talk about the science, or one of the many issues that intersect the science.

*Agriculture. Cover crops, fertilizers, pesticides, organic, environmental impact, climate change, land use, farmer’s markets, and more! We want to hear diverse voices and first person accounts.

*Food. Who doesn’t love talking about food? Nutrition, culture and traditions, modernization, world hunger, food distribution, even recipes are welcome!

*Ethics. What are the ethical implications of new innovations in crops, food, or production practices? Help our readers consider important issues in bioethics.

*Education and science communication. Are students learning enough about where their food comes from? What are innovative ways to reach more people?
Law and regulations. Are you a lawyer, policy geek, or someone who thinks about the consequences of current or future policies and laws? Is there a better way to regulate new technologies?

*News and media. How is the media covering science, ag, and food? You could write a short summary of some interesting news, or comment on the media’s coverage of important issues.

*Interviews. Interviews with scientists and others are a great way to contribute. We can help put together questions, and so can our readers. If you have an idea about someone to interview, check with us first. We can also contact your interviewee for you, which might make it more likely that you will get the interview.

*Art, music, video. We invite all types of communication methods. Feel like videotaping yourself with your plants and telling us something cool about them? We can feature it on the blog, and upload it to our YouTube channel.
