Call for Memory Pieces from editors of Buralarda:
ATTENTION!!!!! DEADLINES, EVERYONE!
We are putting out 2 final (that means FINAL) issues of Buralarda this
year (September and late December which will include a report
on what Arkadașlar has done).
First of the final three
YOU won't be on the mailing list for those unless you pay your
$30 dues to Linda Scheffer.
Deadline for submitting a volunteer or staff memory piece of what
Turkey Peace Corps meant to you, for possible inclusion in the
issue of Buralarda: August 1, 2018. Submission by this date does
not guarantee you'll be included in the second issue but we intend to
include all submissions, edited, in the planned 3 issues of the
year. 300-500 words are suggested. Please include a picture of
yourself during Turkey days, if possible. Send to co-editors Peggy
Hanson (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Dale Evans (email@example.com).
We have received some wonderful submissions so far. Some people
have preferred to share advice on Turkish food, books, etc. and
those will be included, too. Do please participate in this last
year of Arkadaslar's set of memories and musings! These issues of Buralarda will
also be given to the Peace Corps, the Library of Congress and
anywhere else we might archive our memories.
Thank you. Peggy, Dale and the Board
