The University of Illinois Press, the University Press of Mississippi, and the University of Wisconsin Press, in cooperation with the American Folklore Society and with the support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, invite proposals to a workshop at the 2013 conference of the American Folklore Society for authors working on their first book. Up to six authors will be selected to participate in a full day of intensive activities devoted to critiquing and developing their individual projects. Projects selected for the workshop will be candidates for publication in the Presses’ collaborative series, Folklore Studies in a Multicultural World, which aims to publish exceptional first books that emphasize the interdisciplinary and/or international nature of the field of folklore. Because of the volume of submissions, it is not possible for the participating presses to offer detailed responses to each proposal submitted. Only those candidates selected for the workshop will receive a detailed response.

Proposals may be submitted via e-mail between January 1, 2013 and April 1, 2013, to For complete submission guidelines, please see
