Culture Smart Looking For Writer For India

Hi Everyone, The Culture Smart series needs a writer for India...

Quoting Jo Parfitt's blog:

"The ideal author is an English-speaking expatriate who has lived in the country for some time and is thoroughly well versed in the local culture."

"Kuperard’s Culture Smart guides are short introductory books that alert first-time visitors to the values and attitudes of different countries. They do not duplicate the hard information given in conventional guidebooks but rather focus on the human dimension, on a country’s culture, so as to enable foreign visitors both to be understanding guests and to get the most out of their visit..."

"Kuperard plans to publish a completely new volume on India next year. The book will follow an established series format, and the text will be between 28,000 and 30,000 words long. The fee is £1,000, payable half on receipt and acceptance of the manuscript, and half thirty days afterwards."

If you are interested in this project, please email Jo Parfitt in the first instance. Thanks.
