Tips for Writing a good Gorm article!
1. Be true to you
Everyone has a story to tell, your story must be true to you and only you!
2. Disagree with Respect
Every topic has different perspectives and disagreements may arise. We are open to different sides of a story as long as we remain respectful and open to diverse perspectives.
2. Own your Privilege
We all have privileges, and it is important to reflect on them in your piece.
4. Think Critically
Reflect on other perspectives, viewpoints and thought patterns to show the reader that you have really thought through your article.
5. Write what you would read
Be open, funny, smart, witty and honest. Stories that allow us to come together and openly engage with each other have the stories we can all read.
