Ready, Set, Submit! Open Lab 2011

Production on Open Lab 2010 is proceeding apace, thanks to the valiant assistance of Blake Stacey. While we put the finishing touches on it, though, it is time to announce the sixth anthology.*

The submission form for the 2011 edition of Open Lab is now open. Any blog post written since December 1, 2010 is eligible for submission.

You can buy the last four annual collections here. You can read Prefaces and Introductions to older editions here. The instructions for submitting are here.

Here are the submission badges, designed again this year by Doctor Zen. You are encouraged to display them prominently on your websites and blogs.



*No, I won't be editing the 2011 edition, but until the next editor is announced, I'll continue to monitor the incoming submissions.
