|ScrapStreet and GingerScraps are joining forces|
As I posted a few days ago, I've been asked to join the team of staff writers for the new GingerScrapsStreet Digital & Hybrid Magazine. It will be a monthly free zine for you to view online, each article is at least two pages long or more. I'm quite honored to have applied and been accepted to this team. Watch for calls for a Creative Team soon!
I saw on my teammate's, K Andrew, blog a lengthier explanation than what I shared with you, which is inspiring me to write to you today. (You can find all the writing staff's blogs in the sidebar.) I wanted to let you know a little more about what to expect from me in this exciting magazine.
Right now I am writing my first article to come out in our Premier issue on January 1st!!!! With the tight turn-around, I've asked a few friends to contribute to this article or I have found hybrid projects in online galleries that will work and contacted that person asking if the item is available for publication. I am still looking for a few more spots, so if you are interested in submitting a hybrid project for my first article - please email me at julieann at scrapstreet dot com, and give me 24 hours to respond. Do not send in any project images this time as I am looking for something specific and you might be asked to create something from scratch. Right now I am just looking for talent.
Next month, I will be repeating the process again for the February issue.... and if you want a head start - here are the February calls below. Then in both issues, I'll also be creating layouts - One for the Showroom where the magazine showcases a certain designer, this will be a hybrid layout, and One for Pixel Place.
It's a lot of work, a bit overwhelming right now with the holidays and traveling and all that but isn't it a marvelous and exciting new adventure for the scrap community? Check out these calls...........
