Historic Seattle Preservation Foundation
Seattle’s Full Story Blog Contributions from Black Community
- Deadline: Ongoing
- Budget: $100
Historic Seattle is committed to addressing racism within our organization and making tangible progress in resolving our organization’s lack of diversity in our staffing, governance, and storytelling. As such, in July 2020, we announced the creation of the recurring blog feature “Seattle’s Full Story.”
About Seattle’s Full Story
Inspired by the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s “Telling the Full American Story” initiative and aiming to help advance the work of the Black community in the ongoing #BlackLivesMatter movement, we are actively soliciting compensated content from Black contributors for our recurring blog feature “Seattle’s Full Story.” This call will expand to all BIPOC community members later this year.
This feature will be a permanent addition to our blog, promoted through eNewsletters and social media.
Submissions should relate to telling Black stories of Seattle’s history and/or preservation. The format is not limited to traditional article format – photo series, poems, art, song, video, etc. are all options.
Guidelines apply: No prejudiced or biased content. No explicit images. Because our organization is a public development authority, we can’t include content that endorses political candidates/policy positions. It is our intention to post submissions without editing, with the exception of explicit language.
Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis (no deadline). Creators of selected contributions will receive a $100 honorarium for their work. For more information, visit our website.
