Contribute

We are passionate about food safety politics and GMOs in particular.  We have been at it for three years and our online publication is growing.  At present, we look to add freelance contributors.  We would love to publish your stories!

If you would like to contribute your writing, send an email to contribute@gmo-journal.com with your finished article attached along with any supporting materials.

Here are laboriously detailed answers to questions that you might have. In short, speak out and have fun with it!
