Preparing, Pitching, and Proposing Your First Book Project

Wednesday, November 4, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Wondering how to make that almost finished dissertation into a viable book project? Learn from Michael J. McGandy, Senior Editor, Cornell University Press (American History, American Politics, New York State, and Urban Studies). A mix of nuts-and-bolts and strategy, this talk will address the initial steps first-time book authors should take as they develop a book project, research presses, and contact editors. There will be a substantial question and answer period.

Co-sponsored by the GC’s Political Science Program, Office of Career Planning and Professional Development, and Library.
