Writing Opportunity for Librarians

Via my UNT cohort colleague Margaret Lincoln comes this notice about a writing opportunity!

Dear Librarian:

Would you like to be included in Librarians Beyond the Circ Desk: Innovative Librarianship on how you became a blogger, book reviewer, software developer, web administrator or other complimentary activities furthering librarianship? Libraries Unlimited, Scarecrow, Neal-Schuman, Linworth, and McFarland are interested.

Contributions from public, school, academic, special librarians–one 1250 word article or two articles each 1250 words, are invited. Those sending two articles (both accepted) will receive a free book as
payment. Each “how-to” article will showcase the creativity of contemporary U.S. librarians.

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. I’ll send you
topics already selected to avoid duplication. Article(s) and brief resume are due April 10, 2006. Bullets, headings are encouraged for clarity, conciseness a basic.
