Ain’t no joke.
Please write about why you love L.A. and how community inspires creativity and why people don’t quit their daydreams. It’s my daydream to make more books, and I need your help keeping this dream alive.
The deadline for submissions has been pushed back to November 16th, so please keep up the good work and be in touch if you have any questions that aren’t answered on the COLLABORATE portion of this “blog”.
Thank you for your interest and patience.
Dear potential collaborator,
Want to help make a really great book? DIYinLAX is about how community inspires creativity and why people don’t quit their daydreams; it’s a cultural study of Los Angeles, California.
DIYinLAX was recently funded through kickstarter, and now comes the really fun part: finishing the book in time for its release date of November 16, 2012!
The book will be a compact 6″ square format (perfect for both bedside and coffee tables as well as trips to the beach or something to keep in your glove box for passengers who may become stuck in traffic with you). DIYinLAX will contain interviews, profiles, how-to tutorials written by and/or about Do-It-Yourselfers.This could include you!
Want to write a profile about your project? Or interview a friend/collaborator? Maybe even write or draw instructions to make something?
Submissions should be between 300-1,200 words and should include information related to the theme of this project including a definition of DIY, how community inspires creativity, and why people don’t quit their daydreams.
Images should be submitted in high resolution JPEG format (i.e. no smaller than 4×6 inches at 300 dpi).
DATES TO NOTE:
June 15, 2012 RSVP to email@example.com with proposed content of submission*
July 31, 2012 submission deadline*
