Call for contributors for ‘The Debrief’

Now that we have a blog name, and editors, we are looking for writers!

Do you have a topic you are passionate about? Something your friends know pushes all your buttons and gets you talking (I’m sure you do!). That is what we want!

This is a non-exhaustive list of topics you could write about:
– Allyship
– Intersectionality (Gender, LGBTQI)
– Self-care and wellbeing (stress, burnout, prevention)
– Speciality settings (sports/ legal/ mental health/ academic/ conference)
– Innovation (training, technology, service provision)
– Gatekeeping
– Community training and education
– Events
– Reviews of resources, books, videos
– Personal growth and feedback
– Networking (how, when, why)
– Deaf interpreters
– Reflective practice
– Rural, remote and international contexts
– Certification

– Ethics
– ‘Day in the life of’ – volunteer, educational interpreter etc.

If your passion isn’t there, write about it anyway! Send in your ideas to thedebrief@aslia.com.au

If you are NAATI qualified you can also gain PD points for contributing to the blog (NAATI PD points – 2.4 – 10 Points).

If you want more information about what’s involved, send us an email, thedebrief@aslia.com.au

The blog website will be up and running in early 2019.
