EFA / Editors Canada Joint Academic Editing Book Club (JAEBC)

April 3rd @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

For the April meeting of the Academic Editing Book Club, we will be discussing Dr. Laura Portwood-Stacer’s The Book Proposal Book.

This event will consist of a Q&A with Dr. Laura Portwood-Stacer, hosted by Dr. Jana Riess.

About the book
The scholarly book proposal may be academia’s most mysterious genre. You have to write one to get published, but most scholars receive no training on how to do so—and you may have never even seen a proposal before you’re expected to produce your own. The Book Proposal Book cuts through the mystery and guides prospective authors step by step through the process of crafting a compelling proposal and pitching it to university presses and other academic publishers.

She is the author of Lifestyle Politics and Radical Activism and previously taught media and cultural studies at New York University and the University of Southern California.
