Write for the Injured Workers' Blog

Write for the Injured Workers' Blog

Your words and experience have power and meaning. That's why the Injured Workers Support Network is launching the Injured Workers Blog.

The goal of the Injured Workers' Blog is for injured workers (and their loved ones) to share their stories and ideas.

What can you submit?

We encourage you to submit any idea that you have for a blog post but we want this blog to remain a place where injured workers can go for stories of others experience or advice. Here are some topics we would love covered:

  • Any tips you have for dealing with the WorkCover system
  • A recount of a great meeting or event you’ve attended
  • Self-care tips or tricks when things get hard
  • Places you’ve gone to for advice
  • Advice for workers who are new to the system
  • Ways family members can be involved in the claim
  • Ways family members can deal with the impact the journey has on them

We are looking for stories that empower injured workers.

 

How do you submit a blog post?

We’ve created a Typeform submission link for you to submit your blog post.

We know sometimes you, as injured workers, cannot share your name to your story because of legal or WorkCover reasons. That’s why we’ll allow submissions with an author name or without if you would like to remain anonymous.

Submissions need to be looked over to ensure they meet the requirements included on the first page of the submission form and may need to be edited for clarity, language, fact-checking, and other reasons. That’s why during the submission process, we will ask you for your email. This is important so we know who is writing the submission and so we can contact you with any questions or edits that we have. By providing your email you will still stay anonymous and your identity won’t be shared without your express permission.

Blog posts will need to be checked that they meet the required criteria. We reserve the right to not publish posts that don’t fit the required criteria. We can only upload blog posts that:

  • are not defamatory or offensive,
  • are in line with the Principles and Mission Statements of the Injured Workers Support Network,
  • does not engage in bullying, harassment or intimidation of other people, including members of the Injured Workers Support Network,
  • does not breach your privacy or the privacy of other people without their express consent,
  • does not give legal advice, and
  • does not infringe on copyright or intellectual property laws (i.e. not plagerised).
