By Gregory Hansen (Arkansas State University) -- Here's my annual call for items for our Folklore and Education Section's newsletter. We're interested in any items of general interest as well as notifications of new resources for use in folklife in education. I'll forward general interest features, blurbs, etc. to our co-editor, Rosemary Hathaway.
You can visit our section's web site and find copies of previous years' newsletters at this URL. You’ll find the newsletters by scrolling down to the bottom of the page:
We'll take a look at any submission that is relevant to what we publish. I'm especially interested in items for my "New Resources" column. This column consists of brief announcements of new materials for use in schools and in adult education -- specifically educational programs outside of high education.
To publicize your new resource, send me a blurb of less than 150 words. Include the title of your resource, a brief description of the resource, ordering information, and any contact info that you'd like to include. For your reference, you'll find examples of these entries in previous years' newsletters that are included in the link.
If you’re interested in writing a longer piece, feel free to contact Rosemary or me. We’re interested in what you have in mind. These entries may be more than 150 words. We can determine the size requirements based on what you have in mind and the space available.
We'll need the newsletter items by February 28, 2016, and we plan to have the newsletter posted in the summer of 2016. If you can send them earlier to me at firstname.lastname@example.org, I’d appreciate it.
