How Content is Written - CultureGrams

Who writes CultureGrams?

Each World Edition report undergoes an extensive peer review process. All new texts are written initially by a country native or long-term resident in coordination with a CultureGrams editor. Writers are selected on the basis of their writing, language, and observational skills; experience with different regions and socioeconomic groups; recent residency in the country; and access to current information. Our writers have included Fulbright scholars, academics, health professionals, educators, Peace Corps volunteers, and other qualified individuals. Once an acceptable draft is prepared, in-country reviewers with similar qualifications but varying backgrounds provide additional perspectives and insights before the new text is submitted to a CultureGrams editor for consensus and publication. More information on our writing process is available on our submissions pages, accessible at
