Call for Writers: Grolier Encyclopedia of the Victorian Era
We are currently seeking qualified writers to contribute essays to a new, five-volume encyclopedia of the Victorian Era to be published by Grolier. The Grolier Encyclopedia of the Victorian Era is intended to provide complete coverage of the social, political, and intellectual landscape of the British-dominated world during the years of the reign of Queen Victoria, 1837-1901. The selection of the encyclopedia’s content has been overseen by a team of experts that includes Editor-in-Chief James Eli Adams and a board of advisors representing a variety of academic specialties. Our advisors are: Walter Arnstein; Patrick Brantlinger; Jeremy Dibble; Donald Gray; Elizabeth Helsinger; Christopher Kent; Andrew Miller; Lynda Nead; Peter Stansky; and Herbert Tucker.
The encyclopedia will contain 650 signed entries, ranging in length from 500 to 4,000 words. If you are interested in contributing to the project, please send an e-mail or letter to Tom and Sara Pendergast, the editors of the project. In your letter, briefly describe your qualifications for writing for the project; if those qualifications do not include significant publications please include a sample of your writing on related topics.
