We are holding the 2009 International Aid and Trade Event in Washington DC, in the Ronald Reagan Building, on the 9th and 10th July. Part of the event involves speakers sitting around a round table and discussing aid issues. We are looking for writers to sit in on these events and write small articles after. Have a look at [url removed, login to view] for a list of workshops, speakers and last years articles to get an idea of what we are after. We need Washington DC based writers, so that travel costs are not included. We are looking for at least 3 writers to cover the two days. Each day will involve 4 1 1/2 hr workshops per writer, with a half hour break in between them.
