A Call for Authors
Spring is coming (soon, we hope), and it's time to bring new life to the Linux Journal Web site. Therefore, we're looking for new and returning authors to write for LJ.com. We want to hear from all sorts of Linux users who are using Linux for all sorts of projects, whether it's at home or at work; on your laptop, desktop or server farm. Share how and why you're creating your own programs, tweaking someone else's or using big-name vendor products. We're hoping for creative as well as practical examples and applications of how you're making Linux suit your needs.
Writing for LJ.com offers a lot of benefits to writers of all levels and varieties. It's a good way to get started with technical writing, to generate some interest in a project or to write on a specific portion of a topic without investing a lot of time in covering the whole thing.
In addition, web articles don't need to be super formal in structure or writing style. You can put together a tutorial or HOWTO, for example, about the program you just downloaded and installed, and that'll be helpful for other users wanting to do the same thing. Or, put together a thousand-word review of the latest version of a distro and let us know what you loved or hated.
LJ.com is a community Web site for Linux users and Linux Journal readers, and now is a great time for community members to get more involved in what is published on the site. So, take a look at our on-line Author's Guide--keeping in mind that things are less formal for Web articles--put together an article proposal and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hearing from you.
Heather Mead is the Web Editor for LinuxJournal.com and TuxMagazine.com.
