Pen pals

Interested in becoming a pen pal?

With every new edition of Bnieuws, we ask our readers for contributions. In the past, we've done this by maintaining a mailing list of 'pen pals', whom we contact when we are starting a new edition. We will continue to do this, but the call for contributions for every new edition will also be shown below on this page. We leave the choice to you: if you'd like to be emailed when we are starting a new edition, sign up below, otherwise, you can find the theme for the upcoming edition below!

Optimism and Pessimism

In June, our last issue before the summer starts will be published. This time we are partnering with INDESEM. An International Design Seminar will be held at the end of May with lectures, workshops, and Q&As. The board of INDESEM will also make their contribution to the new issue.

This time, Bnieuws is going to be all about Optimism and Pessimism. Over the past year, we have all learned that sometimes things do not turn out the way we expect. When writing or designing, however, we sometimes project personal bias onto our work. Based on our own experiences and individual preferences, we can have either a more positive or negative perspective.

The issue will be double-sided and will explore the themes and subjects in the spectrum of optimism and pessimism. We look forward to hearing your perspectives on this topic.

The deadline for submissions is the28th of May. If you wish to contribute, please let us know.

On behalf of the editorial board, I wish you excellent writing, and have a good week!

Deadline for submissions:

May 28, 2021
