Writing opportunity

If you don’t already read it, I highly recommend the China Policy Institute Blog. They are right now working on a special issue  on China and Asia’s economic integration, and I’m told they need writers. If you have some thoughts on this topic, and would like to be published on this influential site (I think they only need about 1,000 words), contact me and I’ll put you in touch with the publisher.
