We are looking for stories and contributions for the next issue of the London Society's Journal.
We also need someone with print production experience to volunteer as a subeditor
. This would require carefully fact-checking, editing and styling the copy as it comes in (spread out over end of September and early October).
In particular we will be exploring the theme of:
'A city for 10 million inhabitants'
We would like to interpret this theme quite broadly and look at the different aspects of London life that are affected by a booming population - not just planning or housing.
We would like to hear about any organisations, thinkers, professionals, community groups etc working on projects - small scale or large - that offer inspiration.
Types of pieces we run:
- 500 word opinion pieces
- short case studies of relevant interesting projects by architects, urbanists, artists, academics, community groups,
- 1,000 word think pieces and reports
- personal profiles/interviews
- photography, illustration, graphic data visualisation
: Once commissioned, we will need pieces to be written by the end of September in order to have enough time for design & layout.
Sadly we are unable to pay anyone for their contributions, but will happily plug any websites, blogs, recent publications, upcoming events, etc in exchange. And of course you will not only be helping to make the Journal even better, but contributing to informed ongoing debate amongst London Society members and beyond.
If you'd like to contribute, or want to let us know about any projects you think might be worth us covering, do get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org
