Now that we’ve wrapped up Gulf Coast MakerCon 2015, and made all these great connections in our awesomely creative and productive maker community, we want to keep the conversation flowing. And we need and want your help to do that.
We know you’re out there – incredible makers doing amazing things with electronics, wood, textiles, concrete blocks,pvc pipes, old chairs, Spanish moss – you name it, we know you do it! Some of you teach, run makerspaces, have interesting inventions, or are working on a variety of projects. So we’re inviting you, the fantastic makers of the Gulf Coast, to contribute articles to our Gulf Coast Makers blog. There are a few simple rules:
- We’re looking for informative, interesting ideas, opinions, news, stories & how-tos (See Making as an Economy of Ideas, by Chuck Stephens, and The New Music Conflagration, by Elizabeth Baker)
- No overt advertising and self-promotional pieces please, although we invite you to include a bio and links we’ll use at the end of your article
- Keep it family friendly
- Be generous with illustrations – photos, sketches, CAD and more are welcome
- Videos are welcome
Beyond that, we got nothin’ , not even word limits! Although if your piece is really long, we might run it in multiple parts. Just write, share, have fun!
Please note that we do reserve the right to reject contributions that are not in what we believe to be the spirit of Gulf Coast Makers. There is no compensation for contributions, just the joy of sharing your awesomeness, and the opportunity to get word out about what you do.
Please drop us a line via our Contact page, to let us know if you’d like to be a guest blogger , and help us show everybody what an amazing Maker Community we have in the Gulf Coast! We also welcome news of your events, meet ups, open makes and more on our Calendar page.
