CFP: Philip Roth (no deadline noted; collection)
As a literary studies editor at Greenwood Publishing Group/Praeger
Publishers, I am considering the possibility of putting together an edited
collection of criticism of the entire oeuvre of Philip Roth's works--perhaps
a chapter on each work. I am looking for a volume editor to pull such a
book together, and would like to invite book proposals for such a project.
I've included our submission guidelines below.
One thing to keep in mind in preparing a proposal, and in working with
contributors, is that our audiences consist of GENERAL readers, primarily,
and so chapters would have to be written at a level that high school
students and beyond can understand and appreciate. Essays would have to
follow the same format, provided by the volume editor, and would be absent
of jargon and theoretical terminology; they would be accessible to anyone
wanting to learn more about Philip Roth.
If you are interested, please send all the items on the list below to my
attention. If you have any questions, please feel free to call or email me.
