Who is a BG contributor?

A typical Brown Girl contributor submits articles regularly (the number of monthly posts is decided between the writer and assigned editor). She or he is responsible for writing SEO-friendly, multimedia stories, meeting deadlines, staying in tune with assigned beat or topic, and sharing articles on social media.

Most positions listed above are unpaid, but no job goes unnoticed without many thanks, fun BG perks and invaluable experience. We provide wonderful opportunities to network, attend events, and connect with like-minded South Asians living in the diaspora.
