leave a comment »

Whether you’re an established academic or have only just started learning Haskell, if you have something to say, please consider writing an article for The Monad.Reader! The submission deadline for Issue 18 will be:

Friday, April 8, 2011

This will be a normal issue — but don’t forget to also submit your Haskell poems and short stories by February 18 for inclusion in the special poetry and fiction edition!

The Monad.Reader

The Monad.Reader is a electronic magazine about all things Haskell. It is less formal than journal, but somehow more enduring than a wiki-page. There have been a wide variety of articles: exciting code fragments, intriguing puzzles, book reviews, tutorials, and even half-baked research ideas.

Submission Details

Get in touch with me if you intend to submit something — the sooner you let me know what you’re up to, the better.

Please submit articles for the next issue to me by e-mail (byorgey at cis.upenn.edu).

Articles should be written according to the guidelines available from

https://themonadreader.wordpress.com/contributing/

Please submit your article in PDF, together with any source files you used. The sources will be released together with the magazine under a BSD license.

If you would like to submit an article, but have trouble with LaTeX please let me know and we’ll work something out.

Call for Copy: Special Poetry and Fiction Edition!

with 4 comments

Submissions are now being accepted for a special POETRY AND FICTION edition of the Monad.Reader. Poems about Haskell, short stories about Haskell, poems about poems about Haskell, elaborate monad tutorial allegories, Haskell/Dinosaur Comics crossovers: all fair game!

If you want a bit of inspiration, check out these links. But you are a creative bunch, I’m sure you can come up with all sorts of fun ideas and formats.

The submission deadline will be

Friday, February 18

but feel free to send submissions at any time between now and then.

Questions That May Be Asked Frequently (QTMBAF)

Q. Are you serious?
A. Absolutely.

Q. The deadline is only four weeks away! It will take me at least five weeks to write my incredible masterpiece!
A. Are you serious?

Q. Will you take every submission or will there be some sort of selection process?
A. I hope to publish every submission, although not without going through a process of editing and suggested revisions. Ultimately, it depends on the number of submissions.

Q. Can I submit the same poem multiple times to increase my chances?
A. I have written a sophisticated, 5000-line Haskell program to detect this and alter your submission in a subtle yet highly embarrassing (for you) way.

Q. Seriously, this is a dumb idea.
A. Please try to phrase your question in the form of a question.

Q. Seriously, is this a dumb idea?
A. No, I’m pretty sure it is awesome.

Submission Details

Submissions should be sent to (byorgey at cis.upenn.edu). Simple text submissions are fine for short submissions such as poetry. For longer submissions, LaTeX is appreciated. See the submission guidelines to get started.

If submitting in LaTeX is a hardship, text submissions will be accepted. Submissions in Microsoft Word format will be deleted and then overwritten fifty times with random bits.
