95 more to go!

I have 95 copies of the old WIPLash to sell @ Rs 30 a piece. Anyone interested should contact me either online or in person. We're clearing stocks for next year's crop.

This year's WIPers, the deadline for submission of stories from this year's course will be January 31, 2007. I'll then need someone to help me edit it, preferably not a course attendee. A previous student would be ideal. If any of you read this post, please volunteer. You'll have to read the page proofs of WIPLash 2006 for errors and help with the layout. Also we would like a cover design done properly this year. The book will be about 100 pages A5 size. We should have copies in hand well before term ends so everyone gets theirs before they leave.

This is your chance to get into print.

To recap: editor and cover designer, please step forward. We'll get working on this through February, print in March and have copies out before April.

I've never edited before. But if that's not a problem I'd like to do it.

Proofer! Editor! I volunteer!

And of course, I have marketing skills, too, as you know. :D

All rihgt, I'm putting Utey in charge of textual editing and layout and Az in charge of the cover designing and management. So Utey I will forward you soft copies of the stories in January and Az, you'll choose a designer and work with them to get a cover up. I'll send Az the stories too in case he needs them to tell the designer what we need. The cover will have to be monochrome unless we scare up some more funds. I'm reluctant to trespass too heavily on CAS generosity.

Please email the stories to me. People who will be published are encouraged to make suggestions :-)

Teleute said...

Works very well for me. Please send, I will duly do. :)

When do we get in touch with you regarding our stories and which one both of us think is the most suitable for getting published? Next sem, ie, 2nd Jan?

Erythrocyte said...

anytime in Jan will do. will get in touch when the new semester starts. it looks like CAS won't be able to fund us next year, so we'll have to scratch our heads over how to make it happen. Ideas welcome.

Oh. Sponsorship? How much does it cost?

Erythrocyte said...
