Become a Regular Contributor: 

#MEAction is looking for writers to cover stories focused on every issue involved in living with ME, including policy, science, healthcare, social policy, caregiving, personal stories and so on.

We welcome articles, opinion pieces and personal narrative in every language.

Our Goal:

  • Make ourselves visible to the world
  • Control the narrative so that we tell our story
  • Report back to the community on activism / policy / science to create a positive feedback loop encouraging more people to get involved to create change
  • Share resources with one another to support our advocacy efforts
  • Generate stories to attract outside media attention

Ongoing Commitment:

We are looking for writers who are interested in dedicating themselves to a specific geographical “beat,” or covering a specific government agency responsible for policy affecting people with ME. We have groups organizing in New York, Arizona, Illinois, in the UK, Canada and Australia and we need writers who are willing to keep abreast of the ongoing actions, work with the group to write reports (or other materials needed) and report back to the community on what is happening.

One-time stories

We welcome writers interested in writing stories from time-to-time as the subject interests them. We will keep in touch with you via email about stories that require a writer.

Blog contributions

We welcome bloggers to publish their posts on our platform, in addition to their own, in order to reach a wider audience. Every article is promoted on social media and, occasionally, sent to our email list. We have 10K + followers on Facebook, and reach 30K+ via email.
