Anarchist Book Project

They are also looking for people to help with translation of the book from English into Spanish,
if people can help contact Nathan.

A call for submissions to my fellow Anarchists,

Arash Karimi and I are working on an anarchist book project. This is a call for submissions as roughly half the book is going to be dedicated to essays written by comrades like yourself. If you would like to submit something or if you know of anyone who would be interested in this project, please get in touch. There really isn't going to be any hard submissions guidelines. Just make sure the essay is relevant to anarchism and get your essay (at least a first draft, but specify that it is a first draft) to us by January 2010. Length isn't really an issue and the topic could be virtually anything. The IWW, Emma Goldman, Solidarity, Education, Anarchism Vs. _________, Contemporary anarchism, Tactics, Workers self-management, or Permaculture, are just a few example topics. I won’t guarantee that your contribution will be accepted (we will be using collective decision making in the essay acceptance process) but I will insure that your name is given credit in the book. Probably in some sort of special thanks page. So, if you are interested or you know of anyone who might be, please get in touch with us. Also if you happen to visit the Facebook page and you see that someone has said they are going to write an essay with your topic or a very similar one already, don't worry about it. there is no guarantee that they will even actually send us that essay and if if they do, there is no guarantee that you can't do better than them. Also, we might accept two or more essays that cover any single topic. If your essay does not get into the book, Arash and I have been talking about starting a journal/magazine about anarchism after the book takes off. With your permission we might want to use your essay for that project if it does not get accepted. The journal is still in the hypothetical stage so we can't even guarantee entry into that project but I think if the book is successful, there would be little to no reason not to green light that project.

Also, if you have any experience with book publishing, marketing or promotion please get in touch with us. really if you have ANY advice we would greatly appreciate it.

Here are some links so you can get in touch with us and also be updated with the project,

If I've sent this message to you before or if you are not an anarchist or do not wish to contribute, I do apologize for bothering you. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Peace and Solidarity,
Nathan Revercomb (Beyond Revolution)

How long should the essays be? I've been writing on Anarchism for a while on my personal blog, would it be ok if I submit an entry I've written there in the past?

you should contact the people working on the book directly through the links and info provided

Ah I see. Apologies, it seemed from the personal tone and lack of blockquotes as if you were writing in the first person.
