Dear SW List Members:
I am happy to announce a new forum on our SignWriting Web Site. It is:
The Independent SWriter's Forum
The Independent SWriter's Forum includes "unedited documents" typed with
the SignWriter Computer Program. This way, new SignWriting authors will
have a forum for their work. Authors are responsible for their own written
material. Their email address will be posted with their document, so
readers can have direct contact with them.
Would you like to submit your SignWriting document to be posted on the
Independent SWriter's Forum?
Here is how....
1. Type your Sign Language document in SignWriting with the SignWriter
Computer Program. This creates a file that is called an .SGN file (a
2. Prepare an email message. Inside the email message, in English or
another spoken language, type:
a. the title of the Sign Language document
b. the name of the author
c. the email address of the author
d. a short biography of the author
e. the names of any other contributors
f. the complete translation of the Sign Language document into English or
another spoken language
g. any other human interest or background information about the document
3. Once this email message is written, "attach" the .SGN file to the email
message, and send it to:
4. Do you have photos or illustrations to enhance your document? Create
.GIF or .JPG files of those illustrations, and send them as attached files
to a second email message. Inside your second email message, write the
captions you wish to be included with your illustrations, giving credit to
any artists or photographers.
5. Once received, I will post your document, including your email address,
so that readers can write directly to you.
I look forward to receiving your SignWriting contributions!
