Workshop: How to Craft and Submit A Winning Book Proposal
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 four weeks!
