I am editing A Companion to Twentieth-Century American Poetry (for Facts on
File, Inc., a publisher that enjoys very wide distribution in libraries,
colleges and high schools, as well as bookstores). The project has been
ongoing for about a year, and the volume is scheduled to appear in 2004.
There are still a number of essays (including some major authors, poems and
topics) to be assigned.

The volume will be peer reviewed. Payment for essays will be in
presentational offprints and, too, for the large topic essays, a copy of the
book. All essays will carry the author's name, and a list of contributors
will appear in the back of the book.

The list of entries for the volume can be viewed at this website:; also at the website can be
found a set of guidelines for writing the essays as well as sample, model
