This is the Global Voices Community Guide, a set of documents that explain how we define and create stories for the Global Voices sites. It has information about our editorial goals and standards, technical details about creating posts in WordPress and references for custom tools used by Global Voices.

If you'd like to work on the Guide please use the Contact Form to express interest and we will create an account for you.

Please use the Guide: Start Here and Guide: References boxes to the right to begin, or search for what you are looking for.

The full guide sections below can be a bit intimidating, so we recommend using one of the starters or references and follow links from there.
