Prufrock Press is looking for Historical MG Nonfiction.
From their website:
At Prufrock Press, we want to build a new series of high-interest children’s nonfiction books based on American history, and we are on a search for great teacher-authors to participate in the writing project.
Imagine a series of children’s books (ages 8–12) based around the themes of …
- history’s mysteries,
- strange histories, or
- hidden or forgotten histories.
Initially, we imagine specific books in the series would target periods or events such as the American Revolution, the Civil War, disasters in American history (e.g., the Hindenburg, Chicago Fire, 1918 flu pandemic, etc.), strange explorations, or surprising inventions. However, if you have a different idea, we would love to hear it.
Deadline for Proposal is: 7/15/2013For more information:
