Pitch a Piece to Plans in Perspective
Explanation, guidelines, and some first thoughts on this experiment
Each of us lives in some slice of the built world, which we observe on a daily basis, and we often come to form thoughts about the things we see. I’d like to experiment with giving a platform to some of those thoughts and observations.
If you know about an interesting building, place, or built-environment related topic that you would like to write about, send me a note with your idea at firstname.lastname@example.org. Since I may not accept everything, feel free to send me a brief pitch proposal before putting in the work to write the whole thing.
Open to all, design background or not!
Here are some other points I’d like to make, along with some guidelines.
The content must be appropriate for a general audience and must reasonably fall within the spirit of Plans in Perspective.
When you email me, send something that helps me understand your background and what perspective you are coming from. (i.e. a LinkedIn page or website). Readers don’t need to know who you are, but I do, since there is a certain amount of trust that comes in hosting strangers on a platform I’ve worked very hard to curate.
At this time, Plans in Perspective is not on a paid subscription model, and I am unable to compensate you in any way for contributions. It is however a chance to plug your social media page etc., if appropriate.
I will try to be reasonable, but I reserve editorial control (we will work together on this). Of course, you’ll get the byline.
More will be discussed when you reach out.
If you’re interested, send me a note at email@example.com!
All best, and happy observing —James
