Demystifying Book Proposals & Publishing Workshop
This workshop will introduce steps and considerations for publishing a book -- from transforming your dissertation to writing a proposal, approaching editors as an early career scholar, and what actually happens between submitting your manuscript and publishing it with a university press. The workshop will focus primarily on conventional publishing while also introducing considerations for open access and born-digital publications.
The workshop will be led by Jenny Tan, Acquisitions Editor at Penn Press, and Cosette Bruhns Alonso, Contemporary Publishing Fellow with Penn Libraries and Penn Press.
