GIRLS: Call For Submissions

From its debut at South by Southwest two years ago this month, Girls has emerged as this generation’s most original, audacious, and poignant depictions of the twenty-something experience. After 3 seasons and 10 Emmy nominations, it continues to grow in popularity while expanding its relevance for viewers of all ages.

Thought Catalog invites authors to submit proposals for a new book on the culture-shaping series. The final book will reach 15-20,000 words, and explore the show’s characters, themes, and cultural impact. Proposals should include a brief overview of the approach, a proposed table of contents, a short sample from the book, and a bio. Make it smart, funny, and original. Make it more fun than a night of driving around in your mom’s Volvo with a bottle of cough syrup and a box of cold McNuggets.

The final volume will be published within the Thought Catalog Books imprint, alongside similar titles such as Winter is Coming: Symbols and Hidden Meanings in ‘A Game of Thrones’; We Put the Spring in Springfield: Chronicling the Golden Era of ‘The Simpsons’; Doctor Who and the Hero’s Journey; Maestro Mario: How Nintendo Transformed Videogame Music into an Art.

How to submit:

Please submit a brief biography, title, and detailed proposal to manuscripts@thoughtcatalog.com. TC mark
