Contribute to IFR

Contributing content to Independent Forum Review is the best way to help us fulfill our mission of bringing an engaging independent media network to life. The best way to get started is to post content at YourContent, our social media network. From here, you can share what you have with the world, and, if it meets our editorial guidelines, it may become published at IFR! All contributors that are published on our network, whether interns or independent contractors, have the opportunity to become sponsored through our sponsorship program. We also offer companies the opportunity to hire contractors for research or other purposes, so long as they aren't in conflict with IFR's mission, core ethics and values. We also syndicate our content and offer our contractors a percentage of these earnings as well. There are also paid and unpaid content assignments available at IFR for reporters, writers, filmmakers, photographers, illustrators, producers, broadcasters, animators and game developers. To apply for one of the above positions, please fill out the Lawson Media and Publishing Independent Contractors Application here.
