Writer Unboxed is an equal-opportunity blog. We choose our guest bloggers and contributors based upon merit, unique perspectives that add to the body of what we do here, and often through recommendations of our current contributors, long-time community members, or outreach by someone interested in the site. Guests and contributors are never excluded on the basis of race, ancestry, national or ethnic origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, disability, age, or veteran status.* Writer Unboxed is, in fact, interested in expanding on our diversity, and strongly encourages interested parties to reach out to us. We stand with our friends of color, our queer friends, our disabled friends, and friends of all ages, and believe in equality — and, yes, justice — for all.
Books Received for Interviews
Personal relationships between WU contributors and other authors occasionally lead to interviews published on WU. When this happens, readers can assume a copy of the interviewed author’s novel was provided to the interviewer free of charge, in order to conduct a personal and book-specific Q&A experience, often coinciding with an author’s book release.
Policy on Comments
Comments are sometimes moderated at Writer Unboxed. This doesn’t mean that comments counter to a poster’s perspective are disallowed; on the contrary, we welcome all viewpoints. However if a comment seems to exist only to rib (or barb) a contributor, it will be deleted. We welcome your thoughtful and constructive comments, and hope you’ll become a valued voice within the WU community.
In the spring of 2015, WU introduced a new plugin to the website called tinyCoffee. This allows readers of a post to donate a small amount of money to the author of that post, ranging from $2-$20. None of this money goes to Writer Unboxed; it is exclusively for the author. A small percentage does, however, go to PayPal.
