Full Circle Magazine Initiative

Ubuntu Women Column

Full Circle Magazine has invited the Ubuntu Women to contribute to a monthly column.

Deadline: First Sunday of each month

Column Requirements

  • Check out the Full Circle Magazine Wiki Page for basic requirements

  • Length? Anywhere from 350-1500 words (this is flexible)

  • Include a picture - and make sure you have full rights to it (either it's your image, or has a license that allows for redistribution)
  • Review their style guidelines for appropriate usage of terms, menu selection syntax and grammar specifications

Column Ideas

  • Interviews with women involved with Ubuntu
  • Articles about current Ubuntu Women Project initiatives and successes
    • Roadmap for Natty
    • Break out different major areas from that for future articles (mentoring, etc.)
  • Women's issues in Technology
  • Promote relevant articles written in other publications (or in other sections of the Full Circle Mag):
    • Advocacy and social issues:
      • Things anyone can do to get more women involved
      • Ways a specific person has worked to get more women involved (I gave a talk; I wrote an article; I mentored a new developer; I showed up at my LUG)
    • Technical articles by UW team members (and other women)
  • How *-women groups have helped more women become involved
  • Promote upcoming events, especially including presentations at conferences

Technical Articles

One of the best ways to increase visibility is to simply get your feminine name out there in the broader community. Some of us contribute heavily in IRC, others on Mailing Lists, others on Forums and there are now several women who post on Planet Ubuntu. Contributing to Full Circle Magazine is another way to show the world that women are contributing.

According to the Full Circle Magazine Wiki Page: "The single rule for an article is; it must somehow be linked to Ubuntu or one of the many derivatives of Ubuntu (Kubuntu, Xubuntu, Edubuntu etc)."

Have a thought for a technical article but aren't sure you're ready to share it with the world? Ubuntu Women wants to encourage submitting technical articles to the broader Full Circle magazine and we'll help with proof-reading and getting you info on how to go about submitting for review. Drop an email to the Ubuntu Women Mailing List, drop by our freenode chat channel #ubuntu-women (see here for how), or post a request for help in our forums.
