Demystifying Book Proposals and Publishing Workshop

Lunch & Learn

Cosette Bruhns Alonso

Contemporary Publishing Fellow, Penn Libraries and Penn Press

Jenny Tan

Acquisitions Editor, Penn Press

Presented by Penn Libraries and the Graduate Student Center

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. 

Light lunch will be provided.

Cosponsored by the Wolf Humanities Center.
