Theme: Malcolm X
Publication: Essay Collection
I am editing a forthcoming collection of essays on Malcolm X and
wondered if you might have a previously unpublished piece I could
consider including. The book will be published as part of Salem
Press’s ever-growing Critical Insights series:
Salem is owned by EBSCO, one of the largest “information companies”
in the world, which operates numerous databases. The book will be
issued both in print and electronically; in fact, any library that
purchases the book receives free access to the digital version.
I have had very good success in attracting major contributors to
these volumes. David Reynolds, for instance, contributed to the
recent volume on Walt Whitman, and practically every living
translator of the Odyssey has contributed to a new book on that poem.
Previous contributors have included MacArthur Fellows, winners of the
National Book Award, and winners of other prestigious prizes. Each
volume, especially recent ones, has featured key scholars dealing
with the subject at hand.
Essays should be roughly 5000 words long and should also be clearly
written and accessible to non-specialists.
Each contributor will be paid $250 and will receive a free copy of
I hope you may be able to contribute. I will be glad to answer any
questions you may have.
I would need the essays by mid-October.
