The editors of the Worldmark Encyclopedia of National Economies are seeking qualified writers to contribute entries on the economies of 201 of the world's nations. The four-volume Worldmark Encyclopedia of National Economies is designed to serve the specific needs of high school and public library users by providing detailed country profiles focusing on economic conditions and written at a high school reading level.
The book will distinguish itself from other economic encyclopedias by emphasizing the analysis of economic development within the context of social and political trends and events, and by organizing information into defined sections that allow easy comparison between countries. Entries will touch on the economic development of the country, governmental structure, infrastructure and communications, economic sectors, international trade, distribution of wealth, working conditions, a brief country history, and a forecast of future trends. Most of all the overviews will paint a picture of how the economy effects the lives of the people.
We are looking for writers who understand the workings of individual countries and their economies and who are interested in an opportunity to share their knowledge with readers who may have little experience with economic information. Entries will be assigned on a country by country basis, and writers will receive a byline and payment ranging from $350 to $1100 based on entry length.
So that we can select the best contributors for this publication, please send a letter or an e-mail message indicating your qualifications and identifying the countries of interest to you. We will contact qualified writers with further details. Assignments will begin immediately.
Please contact Sara or Tom Pendergast (see below).
