Faculty on Book Publishing

Poster that says Faculty on Book Publishing

Please join us for a lively panel discussion of book publishing with faculty members who have recently had their books published by scholarly presses. This discussion, moderated by a university press editor, will cover how to determine the best presses to approach, crafting a proposal, submitting a proposal or manuscript, navigating the peer-review process, and what happens once a press agrees to proceed with publication—from copyediting to marketing.
