GIRLS: Call For Submissions

  • 0

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

      […] -Thought Catalog is calling for people to write books about the influence of this show on the current generation. Talk about more pressure. Sheesh. I would be more likely to read that than watch the show though, so if you feel adequately compelled to do so, I say go for it. I look forward to reading your thoughts; maybe it’ll even convince me to leap into the terrifying unknown that is controversial television. […]
