What to contributeRadio Free Gardistan (RFG) wishes to display the life of ordinary people around the world. Therefore, each article is expected to deal with things...
- ...experienced first hand by the author, or...
- ...something occuring in the author's neighbourhood and/or family, or...
- ...something that directly affects the author, or...
- ...random, interesting, funny and/or deep thoughts
As an example, you should not be writing about something that happened in another country as if you were there, because you were not. However, you may write about how it directly affected you and your society physically and mentally.
