Good afternoon, all!

I am looking to publish 20 resource articles on DDO about debating. I am looking for community members who have both a) real-life debating experience and b) top-tier writing skills.

The topics covered in the articles are ones related to debate that are searched for often on Google. It is my hope that, by creating content on the site that shows up on Google for these particular terms, we can bring in new members who are specifically interested in educated, long-form debating.

All articles will be edited by me prior to being published on the site. However, you will receive author recognition on the page.

The list of titles/subjects follows. If you are interested in writing an article, please add your name next to the title you prefer. Please try to make this forum a running list by using the "Reply & Quote" feature on the most recent post in the thread.

I will contact all volunteers in the near future with further instructions.

Thank you in advance for your help!

We can do multiple right? I might choose to make more if so. But I don't want to take away some from other people.

Yes, if there aren't enough interested people, you can absolutely do as many as you want.

TUF, I will send you further instructions once I get more feedback. Thanks so much!

Would 'Parliamentary Debate' be referring to formats such as British Parliamentary? I'm quite experienced with that particular format and would be happy to write about it.

I didn't take Debate Classes or join the Debate Teams in high school. My experience is solely online, otherwise, I would love to.

Also, it's great to meet others from around St. Louis on here.

I am interested in one of these, but have no confidence in my ability to produce a good article. Could your project accept multiple submissions in particular areas, and select one winner? Could some areas of interest warrant more than one article?

I expect that the idea behind assigning writers to specific articles is to ensure that all articles are actually drafted, and to avoid having some dozen or so submissions in the same category.

No exact time frame since I haven't gotten many volunteers yet. I would like to have them done in the next week or two.

Just to update you I am still working on this. I am going to go in a lot of depth on the LD one, because I used to teach it. I am doing a table of contents, etc. It's going to take some work.

My other one will be alot more straightforward and less complex.

Here is my draft, which still need a lot of content, updates, information, editing, etc. Just wanting to let you know that I am still adamantly working on this.

Sorry for neglecting this for a bit... I got ridiculously busy and side tracked.

What's the progress, kids?

We still need a lot more volunteers to write, so if you think you know anyone who might be interested, pass the word along!
