Blog Guidelines

The mission of UU Class Conversations is to educate UUs about class awareness and inclusion, empowering our religious movement to dismantle classism within our congregations and communities in order to bring a fairer and more equitable world.

We accept writings on topics relating to our mission and the Traditions of Unitarian Universalism. Our audience ranges from members to ministers of UU churches, from church professionals to potential members and guests.
Acceptable topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Personal class stories;
  • Classism in our daily lives;
  • Issues, including race, that intersect with classism;
  • Successful congregational programs or innovations;
  • Current events or policies affecting UU members

Guidelines:

Originality: We welcome both original posts and those from other blogs, if you are cross-posting, please be sure you have the right to do so, and that you include a link at the bottom stating where and when the original post was shown. Likewise, if the blog is originally posted on UUCC’s website and you wish to post on another site, please link back to our site. Our site may not be used to promote or advertise other sites.

Respect: We ask that all of our writers be respectful. We encourage people to be critical and thought-provoking, but not malicious or degrading. Whereas classism is our primary focus, we know that classism intersects with many other aspects of discrimination such as racism, ableism, sexism, heterosexualism, etc. We encourage posts that speak to these intersections but do not wish to compete.

Length: Ideally the blog should be between 400 to 800 words.

Editing: All submissions will be edited for correct grammar and readability. We may ask you to edit your post to make sure the post stays true to your intent. Once the post has been published it cannot be edited.

Non-Publishing: We reserve the right to decline to publish a submission for any reason. This can include (but is not limited to) the need for significant rewrites, blogs that are self-promotional, pieces that are discriminatory or offensive, or if the topic doesn’t fit with our needs

Please provide a photograph and short bio and URL for your website/FB or blog.
