DiversityNewsMagazine.org, has the following list of writing opportunities we have for contributors/freelancers. To fully understand the list, you’ll need to be aware of DiversityNewsMagazine.org and the categories/sections and departments that make them up.

Before submitting your application via the form below and uploading your draft article, we encourage you to go over the guidelines below.


Make sure that the draft articles you submit to Diversity News Magazine are 100% original, meaning that the content was not published anywhere else on the internet (that includes your personal blog or website).


Please try to keep your article within the 550 – 1500 words range. Anything over 1500 words is difficult to read, and it may be a better idea to split the content across multiple articles.


Please refrain from any offensive or negative tone that may demotivate or discourage our readers. Try to keep it warm and positive. If you’re writing on a sensitive topic, make sure it is not biased and that the facts are checked. It is very important the all contributors must write as 3rd person. You are allowed to write as 1st person, when writing an opinion article, a product or service review. Remember by writing as 1st person you are giving your opinion on a product or service.


At DiversityNewsMagazine.org, formerly DiversityNewsMagazineDotcom we follow the Associated Press style. The Associated Press is an American multinational nonprofit news agency headquartered in New York City that operates as a cooperative, unincorporated association. Freelancers should follow AP style when writing their stories for us. We will make any slight adjustments in the few areas we deviate from AP style, if it is necessary.


DiversityNewsMagazine.org formerly DiversityNewsMagazineDotcom Staff and Contributors/Reporters writing format is by utilizing the Five W’s and one H. What are the Five W’s and One H? They are: Who, What, Why, When, Where and How. Why are the Five W’s and One H important? Journalism purists will argue your story isn’t complete until you answer all six questions. It’s hard to argue this point, since missing any of these questions leaves a hole in your story. Even if you’re not reporting on the news of the day, this concept could be useful in many professional writing scenarios.

DiversityNewsMagazine.org formerly DiversityNewsMagazineDotcom contributors are professional individuals when writing an article/story are on the field covering an event. Diversity News Magazine contributors have an obligation to the news-makers and shakers to present a fair and balance article/story.

In general, we expect freelancers to use good journalism and solid writing in their Diversity News Magazine articles. Here are some specific requirements we ask of our freelancers:

  • Multiple sources. A minimum of two sources. A 450-word story should have no fewer than two sources; a 800-word story should have no fewer than three sources. Occasionally, some short Diversity News Magazine stories/articles have just one source, but that is rare. Bottom line: Do thorough reporting.

  • Diverse sources. DiversityNewsMagazine.org formerly DiversityNewsMagazineDotcom has a worldwide circulation in the internet. We are based in Hollywood, California but we are expanding to major cities of the United States and abroad. So it’s important to us that our sources reflect our readership. Freelancers don’t have to hit every county we cover, but they should have sources from more than one. And the more counties covered, the better.

  • Sidebars. Any story 1,000 words or more should have at least one sidebar. Sometimes it’s an info box referring readers to more information from a local organization. Sometimes it’s a list of tips related to the story’s subject. Readers like having information broken up for them and they enjoy multiple points of entry into a story, so we value freelancers who are mindful of that.
