The Editor of the two-volume Women in Science Fiction and Fantasy: An Encyclopedia (to be published by Greenwood Press in 2007) seeks contributors for unassigned entries.
The project includes thematic essays (5000 words) and entries ranging from 250-1000 words. “Preference will be given to college professors, published writers, and advanced graduate students, but others qualified to write about women in science fiction, fantasy, and related genres in work in English from the 19th century to the present, covering fiction, nonfiction, film, television, art, comics, graphic novels, music and poetry will also be considered.”
Payment for accepted essays/entries will be the 2-volume encyclopedia set, plus an honorarium ($250 for thematic essays, $50-$100 for entries).
