Book Publishing Panel

Want to publish a book in the humanities, but unsure of how to start?

Please join us for a discussion and light refreshments

The panelists will each speak for 10 minutes about their experiences in academic publishing, and then will answer your questions, especially about pitching and developing a successful book proposal
