Any Publications Looking for a Blitz Basic Tutorial?

A while ago I wrote the first part of a Blitz Basic tutorial for Amigaville, which was sadly closed before the article was published. It's since been sitting on my hard drive collecting imaginary dust. So, are there any other publications that might be interested in using it? It's around 3,000 words and covers the basics of Blitz Basic - setting it up, the different versions available, the basic concepts and up to Hello World.

If not, I'll stick it on my website for people to use, but just in case I thought I'd ask first.

Cheers!

Amiga Future Magazine is always happy to include stuff. You might need to add an introduction and a proposal how to do a couple of articles on the matter but getting in contact with Andreas is a good starting point, IMHO.

Excellent !
It's really what I was looking after, a Blitz Basic tutorial which would start with the basic concept of programming.

Yep It's been running in Amiga Future for the past five issues, and I'm currently starting work on part 8. It's covered The absolute basics of Blitz (pun intended), procedures, structs, arrays, GadTools GUIs, Intuition events and started on using the classic chipset for graphics operations, with basic blitting covered in the upcoming part 6, and more advanced graphics stuff covered in the following parts.

Amiga Future issues tend to wind up on the web once they're sold out.

Indeed, they're exclusive for now, however as idrougge says, the issues are released as PDFs once they're sold out. Additionally, the various workshops also appear in their own separate section, which is very useful if you're looking to follow a particular series. I guess the Blitz tutorials will show up in that format too after a while.
