The LITA blog is seeking regular contributors interested in writing easily digestible, thought-provoking blog posts that are fun to read (and hopefully to write!). The blog will showcase innovative ideas and projects happening in the library technology world, so there is a lot of room for contributor creativity. Possible post formats could include interviews, how-tos, hacks, and beyond.
Any LITA member is welcome to apply. Library students and members of underrepresented groups are particularly encouraged to apply.
Contributors will be expected to write one post per month. Writers will also participate in peer editing and conversation with other writers – nothing too serious, just be ready to share your ideas and give feedback on others’ ideas. Writers should expect a time commitment of 1-3 hours per month.
Not ready to become a regular writer but you’d like to contribute at some point? Just indicate in your message to me that you’d like to be considered as a guest contributor instead.
To apply, send an email to briannahmarshall at gmail dot com by Friday, August 15. Please include the following information:
- A one to two line brief bio
- Your professional interests and how they could relate to the blog
- 2-3 topics you would be interested in writing about with a one line summary of each
- If possible, links to writing samples, professional or personal, to get a feel for your writing style
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask.
