ARE YOU OUT THERE
#5 Are You Out There Newsletter
June 2022 — Call for Editors, Writers, Followers and Readers
TRADITIONS — DO YOU HAVE ANY SUMMER ONES?
In my school day years, when school was out for summer (who remembers that song?) I remember going to the river and swimming almost every day. With the family. With the watermelon. With the inner tubes. The river wasn’t dirty back then, but it is now. I would never take my kids there if I had any to take.
What are some of your summer traditions?
BUSY, BUSY, BUSY;
BORED, BORED, BORED?
Enough about you!
Just kidding, as we can never get enough of you, especially your stories.
Let’s find out what’s been going on with the AYOT family this month. Everything has happened so fast that it’s like one of those lightning strikes going through a couple of mature birch trees and into the house kind of things.
Like what happened to me, really. Don’t believe me? Read about it in my article about becoming an editor for AYOT.
WOULD YOU LIKE TO JOIN OUR FAMILY? HERE’S HOW:
1. BECOME AN EDITOR FOR US
We are a growing family — but we’re only a handful, literally, of editors. Notice here how many publications are in our family now. Count them and notice the variety of riches contained in this family.
ARE YOU OUT THERE FAMILY OF PUBLICATIONS
So how many publications did you count?
As you can see, AYOT has TEN publications and is limited with only NINE editors — like I said, a literal handful. Well, maybe a little more, but who’s counting? This is your invitation to apply for an editor position with us. Leave a comment if you’re interested in learning more and we’ll be in touch.
Our volunteer editors work tirelessly because they love what they do. A HUGE shout-out to the AYOT original five — our first-hand team, pun intended. Graham Cooke — Kathy K — Ginger Cook — B A Little — Doa Demir
The NINE editors that are part of the AYOT family are not all editing for the same publications — some handle just one publication while others take multiple assignments. Teamwork is key to the AYOT team, we all help each other out at any time, happily and willingly.
2. BECOME A WRITER WITH US
Pick a pub, leave a comment that you’d like to become a writer for the pub you opened and we’ll add you as a writer for that pub along with our ORIGINAL publication ARE YOU OUT THERE.
Links to each of our pubs' submission guidelines can be found in this special announcement that Graham Cooke so expertly crafted. Click, read, be transported to the family member of your choice and sign up.
3. FOLLOW US
We need more followers but especially readers. If you’re interested in any part of the family, be sure to click, follow and read voraciously!
JUNE CHALLENGE TO WRITE MORE
June is coming to a close — quickly. AYOT has grown a LOT this month, but there’s never an end to growth. Sooooo….how would you like to write more articles this week and see them published in AYOT?
The challenge is to help us reach 500 published articles by the end of June. As of the writing of this newsletter we’re still short by a little under 100 articles. Easy!
We have about 100 writers — everyone write one and BOOM! Goal reached.
Official challenge is here in this article by B A Little (Bev).
Thank you for reading this month’s AYOT newsletter. I hope that your summer is filled with lots of activity along with READING and WRITING!
