ZIP CODER NEEDS YOUR HELP
We need articles and ads from readers, subscribers and interested parties. It has become increasingly difficult to get help. Dave abd Becky cannot do it on their own - we need folks to write articles, purchase ads and subscribe to the Zip Coder.
Without your help, Zip Coder is possibly looking at folding in the near future.
Please read the below information and respond as soon as possible - the March issue is on the near horizon.
A Call For Articles, Ads & Subscriptions
March 2019 Issue
of The Zip Coder
Your Zip Coder Staff would really like to hear from anyone interested in writing an article for the upcoming (and/or future) issues. If you have a topic you feel would be of interest to the Advanced/Challenge Square Dance Community, please contact us using the information in the below signature block. We want to hear from you – now.
The subject for said article can be anything of your choosing as long as it directly relates to, or is of interest to, the Advanced/Challenge Square Dancing Community. We would like the article to be three to five pages long (1,000 words, give or take depending on how much the subject demands). You may select any topic about which you feel comfortable writing a discourse on.
If you can do this for the Advanced/Challenge Community, please send us the digital file of your article no later than February 22nd (this allows us time to publish by the end of February).
Please respond with your decision ASAP as we are currently planning the March 2019 issue.
Wait! What! You don't think your ideas are of interest to the Advanced/Challenge community? Wrong! Give it a try - you may find out that your thoughts fit right in – besides that, it’s kind of fun to be published – AND, it’s easy – just put your thoughts in a WORD file and send it to us – we will take care of any formatting, grammar, punctuation, etc. How much easier can that be? If you want to, send us your picture and we will put it along with your article.
Additionally, if you or your organization wish to advertise in the upcoming issue(s) please send in your information no later than February 22nd in order to be included in the March 2019 issue. An Ad Rate Form is attached to this email.
Subscriptions are the life blood of the Zip Coder – without them, we don’t exist.
While we have subscribers worldwide, just like the rest of the Square Dance Domain, our numbers are slowly dwindling. We need to constantly seek out new readers and contributors. If you are not yet a subscriber, please consider a one-year subscription. If you are already a subscriber, please help promote the Zip Coder – you are the best one to attest to the value of the book (a Subscription Form is on the last page of each issue).
Additional information on submission guidelines for articles, ads, the Happenings, Caller and club data can be obtained by emailing me at:
Finally, thanks to all who help make the Zip Coder a success – authors, advertisers and critics alike – you are what makes it all worthwhile.
Please feel free to contact me (Dave) if you have any questions.
