Write Reference Books for the Parenteral Drug Association

An opportunity exists to write reference books for the Parenteral Drug Association (US). The list of topics is provided below and is just a starting list and ideas are welcome. The writing is paid on a royalty only basis, which is 10% for single authors. However it is possible to be the editor of a book and in collaboration produce a book on a topic using chapters from a number of authors (the royalty arrangement for this type of book is different).
 
The text must contain some current regulatory material from a European/global perspective (the point is to produce more texts written from a European angle). If you have a particular topic that is not on the list please let me know. For any book I need a two to three paragraph proposal, a tentative table of contents and estimated page count to present to the Technical Advisory Book Board at the PDA. .

Launch of 2013 Benjamin Franklin House Literary Prize

PRESS RELEASE: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


Launch of 2013 Benjamin Franklin House Literary Prize in association with The Telegraph


“Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time, for that is the stuff life is made of” – Benjamin Franklin,
1758

London, 15 January 2013 – Each year a question or quote exploring Benjamin Franklin’s relevance in
our time is open for interpretation in 1000-1500 words. The competition is open exclusively for young
writers, aged 18-25, with a first prize of £750, and a second prize of £500. Winning entries will be posted
online by media partner The Telegraph and at www.BenjaminFranklinHouse.org.


The Franklin quote for interpretation in 2013 is: “Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time, for that
is the stuff life is made of.“ Entrants should interpret this quote for its significance today. All entries must
be received before 31 October 2013.


Franklin is one of history’s great figures. While he made lasting contributions in many fields, his first
passion was writing. He believed in the power of the written word as the bedrock of a democratic society
to inform and stimulate debate.


For nearly sixteen years between 1757 and 1775, Franklin lived at 36 Craven Street in the heart of
London, England. He is one of history’s great polymaths – a diplomat, patriot, scientist, inventor,
philosopher and more. He was one of the first American journalists, writing prolifically not only on politics
and foreign affairs, but on science, the arts and society. In 2006, Benjamin Franklin House, the world's
only remaining Franklin home, opened to the public for the first time as a dynamic museum and
educational facility. For more information see www.BenjaminFranklinHouse.org.


The Benjamin Franklin House Literary Prize is endowed by Benjamin Franklin House Chairman John
Studzinski, a leading executive and philanthropist.

Entries of 1000-1500 words must be sent by 31 October 2013 to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . Each
entrant is asked to provide their name, email, postal address, and telephone number. In addition,
