DEADLINE EXTENDED: Call for Book Proposals: Folklore in a Multicultural World



Proposals are invited from first-time book authors to participate in an author’s workshop at the 2016 conference of the American Folklore Society. Projects must be single-authored, nonfiction books based on folklore research. Edited volumes, photography collections with minimal text, and memoirs will not be considered. Up to six authors will be selected to participate in a full day of intensive activities devoted to critiquing and developing their individual projects. Workshop activities will include one-on-one mentoring sessions with editors and senior scholars and group discussions of revision and editing strategies, publishing processes, and project critiques. A modest stipend will be provided to participants to help defray the costs of attending the workshop. The workshop is hosted by the University of Illinois Press, the University Press of Mississippi, and the University of Wisconsin Press, in cooperation with the American Folklore Society and with the support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Books resulting from the workshop are to be published in the book series Folklore Studies in a Multicultural World.

Proposals should be submitted via e-mail at any time until the extended deadline of April 15, 2016, to fsmw@uillinois.edu. For complete submission guidelines, please seehttp://www.press.uillinois.edu/fls/?page_id=138.
