For many academics, a book manuscript is key to earning tenure and establishing a scholarly identity. However, the path to academic book publishing can often be confusing, nebulous, and filled with scary myths and misperceptions. This workshop focuses on helping you to take the first steps toward getting your project into print. In this workshop, facilitated by Dr. Badia Ahad, Associate Professor & Vice Provost of Faculty Affairs at Loyola University, you will learn:
- When should I start writing the proposal?
- What is the best way for me to contact an editor?
- How do I pick the best press for my project?
- What does a “winning” book proposal look like?
