It’s been a little over a week since the Youth Forum ended, which means that it’s time to put together IDEA’s semiannual publication, idebate.
I'm writing now to remind you that everything in idebate is submitted by readers, and that we need your content! Many of you who were at Youth Forum have submitted accounts of your time there. Please, please, please continue to do so (photos, embarrassing or otherwise, are welcome). However, we also want to make sure that we report on all the important events that occurred this year, and that we also have submissions from individuals who did not attend the Forum. Whether you want to share reflections on The Global Debates, an account of the World Online Debating Championship, or an update on debate in your home country, we want to hear about it. Most importantly, we want to share it with everyone else in IDEA.
But we need your contributions soon. Submissions for the next issue of idebate are due in a little over a week, on Sunday, August 22. If you have any questions or want to discuss ideas, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, if you’re a Youth Forum participant who would like to contribute but is worried about meeting the deadline, let me know, and you can participate in an exclusive interview (!) about your time there.
Please submit anything you would like to see in the magazine to the same email address, email@example.com.
I hope to hear from you soon!
Isabel Patkowski, idebate Guest Editor
