The Poorvu Center at Yale University presents
Erica Wetter, Executive Editor, Stanford University Press, Catherine Goldstead, Associate Editor, Johns Hopkins University Press and James Lance, Senior Editor, Cornell University Press:
“Turning Your Dissertation into a Book Panel Event with University Press Editors in the Humanities & Social Sciences!”
Starting to think about how to turn your Ph.D. dissertation into a book manuscript? Wondering how to craft a proposal, how to select and approach editors, and how to transform your project so it reads as ‘book’ and not ‘thesis project’? Come join us for a panel discussion and Q&A with three editors from renowned university presses to demystify the process!
After our panelists walk you through the process from initial queries to final publication, emphasizing what editors look for and strategies for success, you will have an opportunity to ask questions during a Q+A. We also encourage you to sign up for one-on-one meetings with the editors following the panel (15-minute sessions from 5-6:30pm) – see the final question in the registration form for details.
