Opportunity: Cengage Learning Scholarly Essays (7/30/2016)

galeGale, a division of Cengage Learning, is interested in Victorian scholars who can write succinctly and clearly for an undergraduate audience. They are looking both for authors to write original essays and to revise essays currently owned by Gale. Doctoral candidates are welcome, but must be currently affiliated with a college or university.  The deadline for essays is short: they would be due by July 30th, 2016. You would be credited as the author and/or co-author of the essay and there is a modest remuneration.
If you are interested, please contact Peter Schumacher at Peter.Schumacher@thomasriggs.net and send him a list of your areas of expertise and a brief (1-2 page) CV.
