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).
