  Digital Media Cattle-Calls  
Posted 2006-06-15 by Tony Walsh
A handful of calls-for-papers and other solicitations caught my eye today--at least one of which I'd love to respond to, but an overabundance of professional work has tied me up for the rest of the summer. I enjoy researching and developing long-form material, but it's just not possible in the short term. If you have more time than I do, perhaps you'll submit to one or more of the following call-outs:
