for brevity.]

Hello again everyone.

I'm thinking of expanding the Language Creation Conference into a
formal nonprofit foundation. It could be used as an umbrella
organization for anything that promotes conlanging.

One thing that I would want to use it for - other than being able to
continue receiving tax-deductible donations for the LCC - is to
publish a (quarterly?) journal. The sort with actual physical mailings
and subscribers, like any other academic / community journal. Content
would be:
1. original research or essays related to conlanging (the sort seen at the LCC);
2. somewhat less formal articles, eg as per Mark Rosenfelder's Model
Languages Newsletter;
3. reviews of particular conlangs & interviews with / profiles of
conlangers; and
4. conlang or community related news or updates.

See for more details on the
background issues.

Please email me or leave a comment with your suggestions / comments.

Also, please contact me if you would be interested in:
* subscribing to the journal (I would ballpark a cost at $20-30/year)
* working on the journal (e.g. editing, fact checking, interviews,
reviews, publishing / mailing)
* writing for the journal (e.g. any of the parts listed above)
* helping with formal non-profit incorporation

P.S. Please forward this to all relevant communities; I will
cross-post to CONLANG and ZBB.
