Because a number of our existing and new readers (welcome, new readers!) signed up at Computers and Writing 2014 to be reviewers for conference sessions, and because I don’t want to miss anyone, I’m posting some quick instructions for review posters here.
Did you forget to sign up to write a review, but have good notes and memory from a session that stuck out to you? Send me an email to let me know if there’s a session you’re interested in writing about, and we’ll see what we can do to make you a C&W Reviewer, too.
- Visit this Google Form to sign up for a guest contributor login for the DRC WordPress site. You might not get a confirmation right away — that’s ok! Give us a couple days and we’ll process your information and send you login credentials.
- Start drafting your post! Aim for about 750-1500 words (err on the side of short!) and feel free to incorporate images, tweets, audio, or visual components.
- Once you receive login information, go ahead and migrate your post over (or draft it entirely) in the DRC WordPress space.
- Let Merideth know (@mgarcia or firstname.lastname@example.org) if you need help migrating media or if you have any other composing questions.
- Save your draft as “ready for review” when you’re done.
- Let Merideth know when you’re done drafting. Someone from DRC will review your post and send feedback, and then give you a projected posting date and deadline.
Pretty easy, huh? Don’t hesitate to send any questions or concerns to the DRC Fellows (email@example.com) or to Merideth (email above).
We look forward to reading your reviews, and hope you had a wonderful time at #cwcon 2014. We certainly did!
