I am seeking two 5000 - 6000 word book chapters for inclusion in an edited collection called Reading LGBTQ+ Children's Picture Books. The collection is under contract with University Press of Mississippi. There is a very quick turnaround resulting from two contributors recently withdrawing.

Complete chapter drafts are due August 1.

I am particularly interested in a chapter about Black Queer children's picture books and a chapter that explores explicit LGBTQ+ representations in one or more non-English speaking countries. Other topics will be considered, but a variety of topics are already covered.

Please, send an abstract, including specific titles to be analyzed, as well as a CV to Jennifer Miller at by May 20.

Thanks so much!
