Having returned from informal hiatus for a few weeks now, we are currently looking for new contributors. As any reader can see from a perusal of our previously published articles, we accept a wide variety of ideas which tie Georgism to various subjects1. If you’re unsure if your particular idea will work for us, just ask and we can let you know. If anyone is interested in potentially contributing, the easiest way to reach out is to either email firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet/DM @PnPSubstack on twitter2.
Additionally, we understand that as volunteers, contributors have differing needs when it comes to putting out articles. With that in mind, we’ve decided to offer different types of involvement. These types are designed to accommodate individual writing styles and availability:
Type 1: Contributors do all the actual writing until the final draft. The editors roles are restricted to providing suggestions3 and editorial directives.
Type 2: The editors serve as a co-writers alongside the contributor. The contributor and editors each do a roughly equal amount of writing.
Type 3: The contributor submits a rough first draft or outline. The editors turn it into a completed article themselves.
Type 4: The contributors role is to provide ideas, knowledge, and sources on a particular topic they’re familiar with4. The editors do most or all of the actual writing.
The specific type or combination of types chosen will depend on what the contributor and editors find works best for both of them.
This flexibility also extends into other aspects of the collaboration. For example, the typical article is around 2500 words long but we accept pieces both shorter and longer than this. Anonymous, pseudonymous, and real name submissions are all acceptable. We also don’t usually require strict deadlines, as we recognize that contributors are engaging in a volunteer effort5.
If you know of anyone who would possibly be interested in contributing, please send this post to them!
We also accept rebuttals to already published articles. If you disagree with a piece that we’ve posted, feel free to contact us so you can put out a written response.
Not just writing suggestions but also things like additional sources that could strengthen the article.
It could even be the case that the contributor has a particular topic they’re knowledgeable about but doesn’t know how to connect it with Georgism. The editors may be able to provide some ideas to help with this.
While we are quite flexible, do note that communication is important. We will generally assume that we can move forward (up to and including publication) if we get an extended period of no response. Let us know if you need extensions or want changes made to drafts.
