The editors of the Guild of Book Workers Journal are now inviting
submissions for volume 51, an issue with a projected publication date in
the fall of 2022.
We encourage submissions that address the ways in which the community of
book workers (collectively and individually) have responded to the
extraordinary events of the past year. Submissions may relate to
maintaining and developing community, the pandemic, the movements for
social justice, and the presidential election. Did your work change in
response to crisis? Have you found ways to grow within your book worker
community? Did you devise imaginative ways to cope economically during the
shutdown? Perhaps you crafted an effective way of using virtual tools to
continue your professional activities? These are just some potential
topics, but there are many others.
Submissions on other topics not directly related to the ongoing challenges
in our communities are equally welcome. Formats for submissions may consist
of brief articles, photo essays, as well as longer treatments of complex
If you have an idea for a submission but aren't sure if it is appropriate,
feel free to contact the editors at email@example.com for
feedback and help in developing your topic. Full submission guidelines can
be found on the Journal pages of the Guild's website at
Deadlines for final submissions are March 1, 2022.
We look forward to hearing from you, Peter D. Verheyen, *Journal *chair.
