The Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy (IEP) seeks authors for entries in Aesthetics and Philosophy of Art.
The IEP is a great resource and well worth contributing to. From their “About” page:
At present, the IEP has over a million visitors per month, and about 20 million page views per year. The Encyclopedia is free of charge and available to all users of the Internet world-wide.
All entries are peer-reviewed. See here for general submission guidelines, and here for more specific guidelines for authors about the article’s content, style, format, etc. Below you’ll find a list of the current desired articles, where an asterisk indicates a particularly highly desired entry.
