Ready to Write that Green Book?
June 12, 2008 · Print This Article
Now may be as good a duration as any: publisher Chelsea Green, home to authors ranging from Daily Kos‘ Markos Moulitsas to our own Lee Welles, is looking for proposals for its Green Guide series, and has launched a contest to find them. The winner of their Green Guide Contest will receive a publishing contract, and a $1000 advance against royalties.
There’s no duration to waste on that one, though: the deadline for entering is July 4… “in honor of the local, independent communitieswe hope the Green Guides will help create—free from the domination of fossil fuels, global warming, and toxic pollution.” By that moment, you will need to put together a regular book proposal… overview, table of contents, and sample chapters… the works. CG spells it all out on the contest announcement.
I’d love to get something together myself, but don’t see it happening by Independence Day. whether you’ve got something in the works, though, send it to them… and let us know about it!
