Facts on File, a New York publisher of reference books for schools and
libraries, is seeking authors to write approximately 80,000-word
manuscripts, following established series guidelines, offering strategies
and techniques for writing about a particular author. These are not
critical works but guides for the student, providing interpretive models
and establishing the link between reading classic works then effectively
writing about them. Contributors are sought for the following authors:
Robert Frost, Tennessee Williams, Langston Hughes, and Gabriel Garcia
Marquez. The ideal author will have a PhD, broad knowledge of the assigned
author’s life and works, and an ability to write clearly, cleanly, and
succinctly for students in both high school and college. Manuscripts would
be due in the latter months of 2008.

If interested please send letter and cv, to: Doug Sanders
