Gale Group's long-running print and online reference series Contemporary Authors is reviewing submissions on an ongoing basis through 2001. Contemporary Authors has been described as "a biographical and bibliographical guide to current writers in fiction, general nonfiction, poerty, journalism, motion pictures, television, and other fields."
Contemporary Authors will consider for inclusion in future volumes authors who a.) have never before appeared in this reference series (if unsure, search for free by author name at www.galenet.com/servlet/LitIndex) and b.) whose works have been issued by commercial publishers or university presses. AUTHORS WHOSE BOOKS HAVE BEEN PUBLISHED ONLY BY VANITY OR AUTHOR-SUBSIDIZED FIRMS WILL NOT BE INCLUDED.
Author sketches typically include personal information, addresses, career history, writings, work in progress, biographical/critical sources and authors' comments and/or informative essays about their lives and work.
There is no charge or obligation to appear in Contemporary Authors. Submission of a form on our site is not a guarantee that a sketch will be written and printed.
