THOUGHT CATALOG SEEKS EBOOK PROPOSALS -- DEADLINE MAY 17TH 2013
Thought Catalog, a New York City-based media brand, welcomes
abstracts from seasoned scholars and graduate students for our Digital Books Division.

-Specific albums from any artist (e.g. Purple Rain by Prince; James Blake by James Blake, etc.)
-Global Contemporary Art
-Architecture and Culture
-Indie and Popular Film
-Gentrification and Cities
-Fashion and Culture
