Call for Contributions

Asian American Entries in Encyclopedia of American Ethnic Literature

Contributors are sought to write Asian American entries for Encyclopedia of
American Ethnic Literature, a 3-volume set, to be published by Facts On File,
a New York publisher of reference books for high school and college students

Entries range from 400 to 1000 words, and each contributor may write one or
several entries. Contributors who write a total of 3,000 published words or
more will receive a copy of the three-volume set (tentatively priced at $195);
those who write less will receive five copies of their entry or entries and
will have an option to buy the set at half price. All payments will be made at
the time of publication of the Encyclopedia.

If you are interested in participating in this project for high school and
young college students, please contact Seiwoong Oh (Co-editor in charge of
Asian American entries) by email. Please include a list of authors you are
interested in writing about (if you choose an author, I will assume that you
will also write entries on his/her major works as listed); a short bio; your
daytime phone number; and your e-mail and regular mail addresses. Shortly
after June 30th, I will send you your assignment, guidelines, a style sheet,
sample entries, and a contract. Deadline for entries: December 20, 2004.
Preference will be given to those who can send in their entries early, before
the deadline.
