Sci-Fi Sunday: Writers Needed For The Encyclopedia of Black Comics

Dear researchers, writers, historians and comics enthusiasts-

I am currently writing the Encyclopedia of Black Comics. I have nearly 150 Black people in the comics industry who have published significant work in the United States or done notable work in the comics field, being included in the volume (including editors, publishers, illustrators, artists, creators, etc).


Right now, I am at a critical juncture in the process, needing people who would like to write intimate, factually correct and nuanced  800 -1000 word entries for the volume (1000 – 1700 words for entries of more notable persons).

This may also be a nice reference entry on a resume for budding graduate students and professors. You have the option of being paid $10.00 dollars per entry and can write any many as your schedule allows. The deadline for submission is August 31st.

If you are interested in writing one, two or a number of entries for the above-mentioned people, please email blackcomicsbook@gmail.com, with the subject line: “Writer”. 

Include in the message which individuals you would like to write about. From there, I will send you contributor guidelines and payment information.

*PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS ONLY A FRACTION OF THE LIST. I NEED THESE COVERED BEFORE ASKING FOR COVERAGE OF OTHERS ON THE LIST. IF YOU WANT TO WRITE ABOUT SOMEONE YOU DO NOT SEE ON THE LIST, PLEASE EMAIL AND ASK ABOUT THEM.
