Fifty percent kill fee. Pays $75 for nonfiction. We are accepting submissions for the Italian Renaissance issue until December 15, 2007. Below are just a few of the many topics that would be of interest - we also encourage writers to submit manuscripts and queries on other possible topic(s) that are related to the issue theme:

Medici family
The Papacy
Papal States
Leonardo da Vinci
Sistine Chapel
Lucrezia Borgia
Sack of Rome in 1527
Venice (the Doge)Florence
Italian City States

I wish I had time to query them. I'm rather well-versed in the Italian Renaissance. I hope one of my readers tries them.
