      A - I N F O S  N E W S  S E R V I C E

Hi there
The SchNEWS Annual 2003 is in production and we are calling out for

We are after contributions of different kinds...
* photos and short(ish) reports of actions, events, etc for positive change,
against the usual nasties in the global north/south social/environmental
justice - and efforts to stop the war of terrorism.
* cartoons, subverts, billboards etc
* people to help sub-edit, do layout and graphics etc

The book has got two themes running through it:
* One is to work heavilly around the graphical and satirical theme of
children's annuals - from Blue Peter to Beano - dressing up crunchy news in
funny ways to reach new audiences (perhaps even reaching readers out of the
activist ghetto). Added to this will be satire about the events of the year
including of course the war. So send us in yer sustainable uses for sticky
backed plastic...

* The other is this idea of gathering articles about people who are doing or
living projects which are really offering solutions to a sustainable future
on a mass scale (so in other words not just one-off right-on middle class
projects which involve rambling farmhouses or solar powered toothbrushes!)
The theme is '...forget yer anarchist and lefty utopias...' - what are we
really going to do about... housing, food production and distribution,
transport, education, direct democracy and direct justice? We'll be looking
for stories of grassroots projects out there already addressing these

We are calling-out for articles along both lines, but, with greater time
constraints than last year - it needs to be ready for June - there is a
possibility that this book will end up two separate projects - if we run out
of time to do 'sustainable futures' justice we may just concentrate on
getting the annual pisstake out for the summer, and finish the other thing
later in the year. Still send yer article ideas in soon either way.

If you have feedback on either project please get back to us - the
'sustainable futures' idea will happen if there is enough enthusiasm for it.

The deadline for material will be the 15th March 2003 (not long) - but
contact us as soon as possible with your ideas and suggestions.

Written Articles Format - on paper or any text or word file format. Please
keep the articles as brief as possible, and try to include pics with
articles of events. If you want to write a longer article on a specific
topic get in touch, but we won't have many articles over 1800 words.

Pics - either send in paper, or email tifs or jpgs preferrably 200dpi or
better, or pdf's, or ai's - anything really.
