Please consider contributing to Librarians Beyond the Circ Desk:
Innovative Librarianship Today on children's programs, hosting
exhibitions, and other complimentary activities furthering
Contributions from public, school, academic, special librarians-one
1250 word article or two articles each 1250 words, are invited. Each
"how-to" article will showcase the creativity of contemporary U.S.
For example, if you design software and are an experienced grants
writer, each could be a topic for an article; another combination
could be setting up a new library, innovative story hours.
Co-authoring is invited. Please e-mail some topics as soon as
possible and a 50-55 word bio with your present position, highlights
as a librarian, to receive feedback.
Article(s) deadline is September 10, 2006. Bullets, headings are
encouraged for clarity, conciseness a basic. Those sending two
published articles will receive a complimentary book as payment.
As a successfully published librarian with a significant record,
please consider contributing to Librarians Publishing for
Professional and Personal Development aimed at helping U.S.
librarians become published.
Since publishers only give contracts/royalties to authors or
co-authors, I will do the sending of royalty checks myself based on
paperwork I receive. Only the first year's royalties will be divided
among the 18 contributors; subsequent royalties remain with me as
editor. Contributors receive a complimentary book.
Word total for 3 articles based on the writer's experience is 4,000:
one article may be 1500 words, another 1500 words, the last 1,000 to
total 4,000. Please send a resume, propose some topics for feedback
as soon as possible. Deadline for e-mailing completed articles:
September 30, 2006.
Poetry, YA, book reviews, columns, essays, magazine articles,
fiction, textbooks, children's books, are just a few types colleagues
are interested in knowing how to get published.
