Essay collection on Paradise Lost: invitation to contribute


I am in the final stages of editing a collection of essays on Paradise Lost. The book will be published as part of Salem Press’s ever-growing Critical Insights series: https://www.salempress.com/press_titles.html?book=597

Authors of essays selected for publication will be paid $250 and will receive a free copy of the published volume.

Salem, a commercial academic press that has existed since the 1940s, is now owned by EBSCO, one of the largest “information companies” in the world. The Critical Insight volumes are published both in hard cover and online, and essays are also available through many EBSCO databases. In an unusual twist, any individual or library that purchases a particular volume can also access the digital version of that volume; there is no need to subscribe to an entire database.

For all these reasons, the essays published in Critical Insights volumes are very widely disseminated. Previous volumes have been well received and have been purchased by numerous public and academic libraries.

Essays on any topics are welcome but should be clear and accessible not only to specialists but to non-specialists. The ideal essay length is 4k-5k words. Salem uses the MLA 8 citation system.

Please send a complete (or nearly complete) version of your essay to revans at aum.edu. Any essays submitted will be reviewed promptly and a prompt decision will be made.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

With best wishes!
