RAB Announces Anthology on 1984 Today


Riverdale Avenue Books to Publish Anthology on George Orwell’s 1984 in the 21st Century

-       Innovative Book Publisher call for essays to be Released on April 4th, 2017 -

New York, NY: (February 6th, 2017)The innovative hybrid publisher, Riverdale Avenue Books has announced a call for essays to be included in a new anthology on how George Orwell’s classic dystopian novel 1984 still resonates nearly seven decades after it was published.

Riverdale Avenue Books’ call for submissions reaches out to a wide array of readers and writers requesting popular non-fiction essays, both personal and political, from high school English teachers and students, academics, science fiction/fantasy authors (adult and YA), scientists, politicians (liberal, conservative or otherwise), political theorists, government and factory workers, union members, linguists, librarians, news people, intelligence community, and social workers, feminists, LGBTQ individuals, people of all religious and irreligious persuasions and beliefs. Anyone who has read and been deeply influenced by Orwell’s greatest work and desires to share its impact.

“With the current political climate, it’s no wonder that 1984 is now #1 on the best-seller lists,” said Publisher Lori Perkins. “Readers and writers relate to the political zeitgeist in the novel in current events right now. We want to let the people be heard!”

The essays should be a minimum of 500 words, and a maximum of 2,500.  Please include a brief autobiography with your submission by March 6, 2017 and send to submissions@riverdaleavebooks.com. The anthology will be published on April 4th, 2017, exactly 33 years after Winston Smith’s story begins in the classic dystopian novel.
