The essays are scheduled to run at 3-5,000 words, readable for a general audience, but opinionated. There is a collection style guide, which will forwarded upon assignment.
There is a modest stipend for scholars and professional writers, including a copy of the completed collection
(retail: $300). Graduate students will get a copy as remuneration. Because the collection is in the initial editing stage, the manuscript has a tight deadline of 12/15/2009.
