Week 1: How to Craft and Submit a Winning Book Proposal in 4 Weeks

Tue, Mar 19, 2019

11:00am – 12:30pm PDT

Badia Ahad, PhD

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? The path to getting your book published begins with a good proposal. In this multi-week course, you will be guided through a step-by-step process to complete your book proposal within four weeks, learn how to translate your research projects for a broader market, and receive invaluable advice about how to approach acquisition editors at academic presses.

What faculty members are saying about this course:

“Last summer I participated in Badia’s multi-week course on writing book proposals. This week, I am negotiating with two university presses, each of which offered a contract to my co-editor and I for our edited volume. (One press even offered an advance—for an edited volume!!) I could not have reached this point in the process so readily (and to be honest, following your advice, it felt easy) without your guidance. Thank you so much!”
