Alex links to a heap of sites on writing Manifestos:
* How to write a manifesto
* Another manifesto assignment with links to some more notorious ones
* A manifesto-writing tutorial (follow at own risk)
* The Scottish Parliament has some ideas on manifesto writing, too: pdf
Have to say I was tempted by the “Submit” option at the bottom of the excellent ChangeThis manifestos that have been going around of late. They may be .pdf but I really really like them.
I guess the ‘only’ issue (besides the fact that I can’t write for toffee compared to the authors they have :o) is that it would probably be looked on, in terms of publications, as even more useless than keeping a weblog (I can hear the ‘pah’, ‘manifestos’ as I type :o).
