How to Craft & Submit a Winning Book Proposal
Facilitator: Badia Ahad


You may have a completed dissertation, a few rough book chapters, or even journal articles you'd like to transform into a coherent book project—but where do you start? The path to getting your book published begins with a good proposal. In this workshop, you will translate your research projects for a broader market, learn how to "sell" your book to academic presses, and have a completed book proposal ready to send to your preferred presses in three weeks!


Badia Sahar Ahad, PhD is an Associate Professor of English and the Director of Undergraduate Programs in English at Loyola University Chicago.
