Short Manuscripts Documenting Projects In Creative Technologies


Application: 01.06.2016
place: Canada
4th Foundation Press is seeking short manuscripts documenting projects in creative technologies. These should be written for an audience of K-12 learners as new so-called ‘coding curricula’ are beginning to be rolled out internationally.

These short books will walk young students through the complete creative, systems and design process of a particular project. This project may be a completed artwork, web application, site template, prototype, or a modified version of any kind of new media work that has been reformulated as pedagogical material for young audiences.

Each MS should also include figures, images, diagrams, discussion of process, any needed work files and complete technical documentation including code that can be downloaded from a companion website. We are open as to the specific media covered (e.g. audiovisual, 3D virtual worlds, games, physical computing, robotics, websites, etc.).

If needed, you can work with instructional designers and editors on our team to refine the presentation of your offering. In terms of scope, your MS can cover anything ranging from a weekend workshop to summer school intensive.

4th Foundation Press will publish both in print and electronically. As a publishing genre we are looking for a hybrid of primer, cookbook, tutorial, textbook, chapbook, pamphlet & manual (for definitions of these terms, see http://www.macmillandictionary.com/us/thesaurus-category/american/types-of-published-book
