Call for Submissions
As part of turning 10, The D.O. is asking all current and previous members to offer lessons learned from their experience working at The D.O. â€” no matter how long ago or for how long. Negative, positive, heady or low-brow, the submissions should tell the story of the DO through the specific anecdotes of its members.
Part â€œhow-toâ€ guide and part reflective document, the book hopes to bring forward the varied voices and experiences that go through a shared workplace. A Print-On-Demand book will be made for our 10-year anniversary party (date to come) and a publisher or distributor will be sought if appropriate.
Submissions should be a brief phrase (lesson learned) with supporting anecdote and/or imagery. Work done while at the DO (finished or not) is fair game. The design and editorial reference for this is Michael Pollanâ€™s Food Rules which has one rule per page. Exceptions would be visual lessons, which could appear in a series (like plates, etc).
Submit via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can read through a rolling collection of submissions for inspiration.
Submission Deadline: August 31 (end of day)
A special edition dummy copy will be made for our 10th anniversary party (date TBA) and used to solicit publishers and/or distributors.
