I was thinking I might be good for submitting something to this: Informed Agitation: Library and Information Skills in Social Justice Movements and Beyond - Anything I should consider about the editor, publisher, etc.?
(also, I've never submitted something for a book before) - Rachel Walden
do it! - jambina
This is from Library Juice Press, Rory Litwin's thing. I find Rory's writing to be off-putting in complicated ways, but I have no direct experience with him. You might ask some of the authors who have published there what they think? - Steele Lawman
Thanks, Steve - not sure who those are off the top (we're pretty isolated in medlibs), but will look into it. - Rachel Walden
Lauren Pressley is friendly and approachable (though I don't know her well you can tell her I suggested you talk to her). Wayne Bivens-Tatum is certainly a sharp guy, and he's the most recent author for Library Juice Press. Might not want to mention me in that case, though... - Steele Lawman
Appreciate it. - Rachel Walden
RadRef people are good people. The ones I know, anyway. - barbara fister
Agreed about RadRef. The editor is a RadRef person, but the publication is Library Juice. - Steele Lawman
I don't know much about Library Juice, so comments about that welcome as well. - Rachel Walden
Melissa, who is the editor, is a friend and an occasional participant here in the LSW room. I know her from RadRef, and she's great. - laura x
I don't always agree with Rory, but I think Library Juice Press puts out very nice books. - laura x
I'm just seeing this now (not that I would have had an unbiased response to the question about the editor. Which is me). Thanks, Laura X, and yes! If you are moved to submit something, please do, and feel free to get in touch with me directly with any questions or ideas. - Melissa M
Awesome, thanks, Melissa! I had forgotten you were on here. I'll be in touch. - Rachel Walden
