Night Owls Press (www.nightowlspress.com), a small, indie press based in San Francisco, is looking for ESL/TESOL instructors with a creative writing bent to join us on a planned book series. For this series, we're looking to combine the classic “gamebook” format— a type of story structure that makes the reader an active participant in the story— with ESL guided instruction. Basically, we want to create a new line of ESL guides in the form of novels.

You may recall the popular book series, Choose Your Own Adventure... We want to create something similar for the ESL market, where readers’ decisions as the “protagonist” of a story shape the story they read, help them learn English, and allow for familiarity with different or alternative meanings associated with certain phrases or language elements. The books are meant to be used alongside classroom instruction or as extracurricular reading for students.

The complete announcement is available at: http://www.nightowlspress.com/open-call-seeking-writers-esl-instructors-book-series/. It includes links to download PDF versions of the Open Call as well as an FAQ and writing example.


Applications will be accepted until 15 April 2013. Invited authors will receive a publishing contract with Night Owls Press and work closely with our book development team. Books will be developed through 2013 and published in paperback and e-book formats. Questions about the project can be directed to Karen Hannah, Book Editor and Project Lead, karen@nightowlspress.com.

Thank you for your time!

Warmly,
The Night Owls Press team
