A Web site for citizen journalists is extending a helping hand to
professional ones. Allvoices.com has announced a program for displaced
journalists who want to continue their craft and get paid for it. The San
Francisco-based Web site is building a professional network of journalists

journalists who are selected to participate in the "Provoices" program

Allvoices has more than 200,000 registered citizen contributors. Those
interested in Provoices should send a resume and clips to
