If we use your piece either online or in our magazine, you will be given this custom made desk clock as a thank you gift for your willingness to support the Conservative movement.
With the 2008 election history, Civitas Institute wants to know your thoughts about the direction and future of conservatism in North Carolina.
We here at Civitas feel that the conservative movement is still the movement that represents forward thinking, leadership and ideas. With that in mind we are publishing a collection of short essays from conservative leaders and possibly your essay in the winter issue of Civitas Review. These should be positive, uplifting pieces and not critiques of past decisions, past leadership or current leaders and policy. If your essay is chosen for the print publication you will receive this clock from Civitas as a thank you for being part of this issue.
We will also be selecting reader essays to publish on-line in a continuing series about the direction and future of conservatism in North Carolina.
Here are some general questions to trigger your thoughts:
- Do you think conservatives are going to rally?
- Do you think voters in 2008 validated the true sentiment of the public and what it wants?
- What should be done to further conservative values and/or the movement in NC?
- What direction or steps should conservatives take to reenergize the movement and insure future successes at the polls?
- What does our state look like with more conservatives in office?
- How do conservative activists engage the wider public?
We encourage you to write down your thoughts in 500 words or less, which may be edited for brevity, for our print and online publications. Please send us your submission to Civitas Review Editor, Jana Benscoter (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please submit them no later than Monday, December 1, 2008.
These essays are to be original works and not copied in whole or part from other any other source. Please include all of your contact information when you submitting a written piece. All submissions become the property of Civitas Insitute.
