Link Editions: In My Computer
CALL FOR PROPOSALS 2015

The LINK Center for the Arts of the Information Age invites artists to submit proposals for its ongoing book series “In My Computer”.

One’s computer is a repository of valuable things that, for some reason, never went public: projects, drafts, short notes, private emails, unreleased interviews, unpublished texts, tales, poems, quotes, image or spam email collections, whatever.

If you think this content may be relevant or interesting also for a wider audience; if you think it may work well in book form, circulated digitally or printed on paper; the book series “In My Computer” may be the right jar for your jam.

“In My Computer” is a series of books collecting unpublished material available in your computer, produced by LINK Editions and circulated both in digital and printed form through the print-on-demand (POD) service Lulu.com. The book can take any shape compatible with POD’s production and distribution standards.

LINK Editions is a publishing initiative of the LINK Center for the Arts of the Information Age. LINK Editions uses the print on demand approach to create an accessible, dynamic series of essays and pamphlets, but also catalogues and artist books. A keen advocate of the idea that information wants to be free, LINK Editions releases its contents free of charge in .pdf format, and on paper at a price accessible to all. Link Editions is a not-for-profit initiative and all its contents are circulated under an Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported (CC BY-NC-SA 3.0) license.

Application Guidelines

HOW. You can apply by sending to the email address a short concept / description of your book proposal, together with a short bio and a sample of what you want to do. Language of the application: English.

WHEN. The deadline for the submission is January 16, 2015. After the deadline, the Link Art Center’s editorial team will select the proposals that will be published in 2015.
