2) Enciclopedia con Greenwood Press
Dear members of the Asociación Femenina de Literatura Hispánica,
Dr. Salvador Oropesa, of Kansas State University, and I are writing to invite you to collaborate in an exciting, three-volume work to be published by Greenwood Press.
The working title is World Literature in Spanish: An Encyclopedia. The orientation of the work is somewhat reminiscent of the Feminist Encyclopedia of Spanish Literature (edited by Janet Pérez and me), with some difference regarding the audience and the lesser emphasis on bibliography. We are editing as we go, and aim to submit a finished ms. draft to Greenwood by late summer 2009.
As much as possible, we wish to submit topical entries rather than using the traditional biographical format, and as we enter this next stage of soliciting contributions, we also encourage contributors to propose topical entries that would combine 3 or more biographical items on our working master list.
To receive a copy of the final 3-volume work, contributors must author a minimum total of around 3,000 words. Those who author fewer entries will receive a very modest honorarium. We normally give authors 3 months from the date of acceptance of commission to complete the entries. This deadline can be extended once, for an additional 3 months. Once a contributor has completed a commission, we are willing to be somewhat more flexible, but we have found that the short turnaround does keep the project on track fairly well.
I attach herewith our contributor guidelines, which explain further the parameters of the project, and also the working Master List of Entries, in the hope that you will find entries that appeal to your expertise, or know of a topical entry that would allow us to eliminate 2 or more biographical one. I have also attached 2 completed entries, so you may see concrete examples of what we desire.
We hope you will be able to collaborate with us on this exciting project. Please let either me or Salvador know if you have any questions we can answer.
