The path to getting your book published begins with a good 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? Join Badia Ahad-Legardy, PhD for a workshop in which 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.
Part I – Writing the Project Description (aka “the heart and soul of the proposal”)
Part II– Developing Your Chapter Outlines: How to Shape Your “Story”
Part III – Know Your Market and Craft Your Market Analysis: How to Make Your Book “Sellable”
Part IV – Proposing Your Proposal: Choosing the Right Press and Getting Your Proposal into the Hands of an Editor
During this four-hour workshop, you will work through your written draft of the proposal step-by-step: we will discuss translating your research projects for a broader market, “selling” your book to academic presses, determining the target market for your manuscript and, at the end of our session, you will have a completed book proposal to send to your preferred presses.
