DemWritePress is excited to launch our DemHub Candidate Blog, and as a Democratic candidate for office, you’re invited to contribute!
Candidates publish position papers and OpEds on a variety of platforms…from Medium to local blog sites to campaign webpages.
Through DemHub, we’re creating a common and centralized forum for Democratic candidates to share their views, so that engaged voters can come and see what Democrats across the country stand for. It will also provide some helpful national exposure to the contributing candidates.
DemWritePress launched in March, 2018 and has had 40,000 visitors in that time. The readership is a national audience – generally highly engaged activists and people who identify as being part of the anti-Trump resistance. Of course the more a post is spread in the home district or state, the more local eyes it will have on it.
Each post will be assertively shared on Twitter by the DemWritePress team. We have significant reach on that medium.
Each DemHub contributor will get a customized DemHub page like this. We can work with you to ensure the links included are most beneficial to you and your campaign. Your core DemHub page can be posted and re-posted on social media, linked from your website, shared with constituents and the press.
What Type of Writing is a Fit for DemHub?
DemHub posts will be a mix of recycled pieces that have been posted elsewhere (we’re fine with that as long as the original publisher is as well), and hopefully some inspiring and/or provocative original pieces as well.
We are especially interested in any writing that touches on our website’s core topic areas: corruption, democracy, voting rights, election security, civic engagement, civic education, and what we’ve termed “The GOP Con” – exposing the ways that Republicans have fooled Americans into voting against their own economic and social interests.
Though these are our core focus areas on the site, we built DemHub for you – so we’re open to anything you want to write (one exception is that we don’t want any content that bashes other Democrats or the party itself). We can also embed photos, video or audio files in the body of posts to enhance your message or highlight a new campaign message.
How Does This Work?
If you are interested in contributing to the site, the first step is to fill out the form below. This provides us with the core information we need to add you as a contributor and build your custom DemHub page. Any information you provide is treated as confidential.
After you submit the form, we’ll send an email to the address you provide, inviting you to become a contributor. Then, we just need a week or so to build some custom graphics, and – of course – you’ll need to prepare something to publish. We’ll walk you through all the steps.
We hope you’ll contribute your voice to this site, and that together we can build a unique forum for discussion of Democratic ideals, policies & strategies that can help us pull the country back from the brink.
