I’m interested in opening up this site for others to post on. It’s my site, so I will maintain some level of editorial control, but if what you are interested in writing is puppetry related, I’m probably game for hosting. I’d love to feature your content. Write a book review, a tutorial, cover a fabrication technique, feature an event, interview someone in the field, focus on a festival or just a great website, perhaps a writeup of a “behind the scenes” of a performance or a video. Pretty much whatever you like. Just drop me a line with what you are thinking, and I’m sure we can work something out: firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’m not paying, but mostly because I’m not looking for professional level writing or content. I’m fine with these posts being almost entirely self-promotional, as long as what you are promoting is puppetry and of interest to other puppeteers.
It would be awesome if you could sign up for a gravatar (they’re free), but this isn’t required. This will just make it easier for me to include a photo of you with your post.
Eventually I would like to create bio pages for contributors, and I want to have commenting, but I’m not there yet. I’ll make sure you have a link back to your website or Facebook page or twitter or whatnot. And if you like writing here and seeing your content here, well, I am sure we can make it a regular thing and have fun!
I’m open to suggestions, so reach out. If I’ve neglected something, I’d be happy to address it.
You don’t need to know html or markdown, so all I need is the text and images for your post. You keep your copyrights and I’m cool with repurposing content, so whatever you send me doesn’t have to be original material, but it does have to be yours. I’ll be reaching out to some of you individually, and I’ll be posting a link to this request on various puppetry pages, so let me know what you think.
- Profile of a puppeteer.
- Interviews of people in the industry.
- Fabrication tutorials/techniques.
- Reviews of books, documentaries, performances.
- A video walk-through of your studio or performance space.
- A write-up of a useful puppetry related website.
- Promotion or an upcoming festval or reflections on ones already past.
