Chelsea House, a New York publisher of reference works for schools and
libraries, is seeking an author to write a critical guide to literature
produced by and relating to Arab Americans and Muslim Americans, with a
particular focus on both the classic and contemporary, mainstream titles
currently read by high school (and university) English students. The title
will profile, in approximately 40,000 to 50,000 words, eight to ten
prominent contemporary figures (subject to approval) two of their major
works each, in addition to providing a general overview of the history and
development of Muslim- and Arab-American literature in the United States.
The ideal author will have a PhD, will have taught or have familiarity
with the multicultural literature and writers assigned in high schools and
universities today, and have experience producing school-and-library
titles targeting this readership. If qualified and interested, please send
a cover letter and cv, preferably via e-mail, to:
