Contributor Perspectives are short responses from our Contributors to various topic prompts provided by Mindfray or submitted by our community.

Contributors may use up to 400 words per response to a prompt. Once a set number of Contributors respond to the prompt, they are compiled into a single article that highlights each Contributor’s unique response to provide multiple perspectives for a particular topic.

Contributor Perspectives prompts are available for direct response on the Contributor Hub once your Contributor profile is set up.

Mindfray offers different ways for people to engage and share their minds as contributors, including Feature Articles and short responses to our Contributor Perspectives prompts.
