Call for proposals for Alaya Dawn Johnson essay in WisCon 39 Souvenir Book

LaShawn Wanak
GoH Liaison — Alaya Dawn Johnson
I am soliciting proposals for an essay on Alaya Dawn Johnson for this year’s WisCon 39 Souvenir Book. Previous essays in the Souvenir Book have been biographically geared towards the GoH, but the essays can also be more personal, discussing how Alaya Dawn Johnson or her work influenced you. The essay will need to be between 800 and 1500 words. Payment will be $20 upon publication.
If interested, please send a proposal and writing sample to me at with the subject header “WisCon 39 ADJ Essay.”  Proposals will be accepted up to Saturday,  Feb. 28 March 7 (deadline extended!). If chosen, I would need a full copy of the essay by March 18. If you have any questions or if you would like to look at previous Souvenir Book essays for examples, please let me know.
