Call For Papers

CALL FOR ESSAYS, ARTICLES, AND INTERVIEWS

A new book series: “PERFORM: Succeeding as a Creative Professional”

Edited by Anna Weinstein
To be published by Focal Press, an imprint of Taylor & Francis

This new series will serve as supplemental text for undergraduate and graduate students that professors across disciplines in the arts can use to accompany their primary textbooks.

The books will have a conversational tone and will serve as career development to help students understand how to navigate the industry and vocational possibilities in their field. Specifically, this series will address business as opposed to craft and will offer insights into the day-to-day realities of the professions as well as long-term planning strategies to build and sustain a career in the arts.

This call for essays, articles, and interviews is for the first three books in the series:

• Directing for the Screen
• Writing for the Screen
• Acting for the Stage

Each book will have 30 contributors, approximately 15 essays and 15 interviews. Essays and interviews will be 3,000 words. Books will have five chapters with the following titles: "Getting Started"; "Sticking It Out"; "Finding Success"; "Getting Ahead"; and "Starting Again." First-person narratives, magazine style articles, informational lectures, research summaries, and interviews with high-profile artists and industry professionals are welcome as long as the primary context of the submission fits within one of the five chapter titles listed above.

Appropriate contributors and interviewees for these first three books include:

• Theater and film artists (actors, writers, directors)
• Theater and film scholars
• Journalists covering the arts, media, and popular culture
• Professors of stage acting, film directing, and screenwriting
• Conservatory instructors
• Private acting and voice coaches
• Private screenwriting and story consultants
• Career counselors specializing in the arts
• Therapists or psychologists who work with actors, screenwriters, and directors
• Studio and production company executives
• Comedians and sketch comedy performers
• Casting directors
• Television, film, and theater directors, writers, and producers
• Documentarians
• Showrunners
• TV & film editors and DPs
• Theater company managers
• Off-Broadway and Broadway performers
• Regional theater performers
• Theater performers who make a living in commercials or VOs
• Headshot photographers
• Performing arts publicists, agents, and managers
• Arts council/foundation directors
• Individuals who are passionate about and have a successful history mentoring or assisting stage actors, film and television directors, and film and television writers

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
Researchers, artists, practitioners, and media professionals covering theater and film are invited to submit a 250-word proposal on or before June 5, 2015. Proposals should indicate "essay" or "interview" and should explain what the piece will cover (five to ten main points), the name and profession of the interviewee, if relevant (and any connection to that individual), why the contributor is suited to write and/or interview about this topic, and any unique experience and input the contributor or interviewee can offer readers about the subject.

Authors of accepted proposals will be notified by email by June 15, 2015 and will receive guidelines as well as the contributor agreement, interview release, and permissions form. Full essays are due August 1, 2015, and full interviews are due September 1, 2015.
