I am in need of some additional essays for an anthology entitled *Readings for Technical Writers*, to be published in 2006 by OUP Canada. The book is intended as a textbook for advanced courses in professional-technical communication, with a target audience of advanced undergraduates.
I need two or three additional essays in the following theme areas: What is Communication (general overviews, definitions, terms); Professional Communication Practice (practical advice or analysis of the role of communication in the workplace); Style in Prof. Comm; Language Issues in Prof. Comm; People and Technology (in particular, the effect of technology on human communication). Essays in related areas may also be considered, and essays from Canadian scholars are particularly welcomed.
The essays should not be excessively scholarly; works addressed to the intelligent non-specialist are particularly sought. The essays should be approximately 15-20 well-written pages and should provoke thoughtful discussion in areas such as style, ethics, leadership, and the rhetoric and politics of professional writing.
I apologize for the short date, but a couple of people who promised essays have dropped out. If you have something you think might fit into this book or would like to contribute, please contact me for more details.
