Description

Experience Level: Expert
We are looking for writers who know their British birds and can write both accurately and engagingly about the birdlife of the British Isles. the book will be very highly ilustrated, but it is also important that the text is as good as possible.
Because we are working to a very tight schedule (text must be ready by mid-April) we are looking for 4-6 writers who can work together to create a text of around 55,000 words covering, among other topics:
-- bird anatomy, lifecycle, courtship, eggs, songs and calls etc
-- main habitats (wetlands, mountains and moorlands, lowland heath etc.
-- birds in the garden and urban environment
-- birdwatching
-- birds and the environment, birds in decline, conservation
-- birds of prey, river birds, woodland birds, seabirds, rarities and vagrants
If you are interested, can you please tell us:
-- exactly what your relevant expertise is, and what you have written before in the field
-- which part(s) of this project would interest you the most

Make sure you include a CV, and ideally some sample text in this or a similar area.
