Yarnival! Request for Submissions

Thursday, August 31st, 2006

I’m hoping to finally get Yarnival! out tomorrow morning before I head off to the cottage again on Monday after I get back from the cottage. I only recently got through all the articles (time management will be easier next time hopefully) and whittled them down to around 20 or 30 posts. I’m trying to string them together coherently now, so expect it soon!

I’m also announcing the call for submissions for issue 2. If you submitted after the deadline last time (and there were a few), I considered you for the second issue but you can also submit something from the last month if it’s more relevant. Some pertinent info:

What kind of submissions are you looking for?

Any knitting/spinning content that you believe represents your best work from the past month or so. Pretty much any ol’ cool thing you wrote about in August/September. It should be at least vaguely knitting-related; the kind of things that really stood out for me this time was original work, witty or insightful commentary, and pretty pictures. Please, don’t be afraid to submit your work. It couldn’t hurt to put yourself out there.

When will the issue be out?

The submission deadline for the second issue of Yarnival will be September 15th (that’s a Friday) and the issue will be published on September 29th (also a Friday). That gives you two weeks to submit! I’ll be posting a reminder closer to the deadline.

How can I submit?

Send me your name (or pseudonym), email address and blog address, as well as the name of your blog and the URL of your post submission. PLEASE send me the permalink to your post submission, because I had to reject some posts last time because I couldn’t find them. If I only get a blog link from you and I get lots of submissions this time, it will have to go into the “executive file.” By which I mean the little Trash icon in my mail program. (I’m sorry :( )

You have two ways of contacting me. You can choose to submit using the automatic form at my Yarnival submission page, or you can use the following contact form:

[I have been getting lots of spam through my contact forms, so until I can find an alternate, spam-protected contact form please email me.]

Good luck and happy submitting! Grab a button! (Buttons are how the internet gives hugs.) Submit to Yarnival!
