Join us for a workshop led by Laura Portwood-Stacer for guidance on the key components of the scholarly book proposal, highlight common mistakes that first-time (and experienced!) authors make, and offer concrete tips on how to make your proposal stand out in the sea of submissions at your dream publisher. Even if you have written successful book proposals before, you will learn new information to take your future projects to the next level. This event will take place Friday, September 30th, 1pm ET/noon CT/10am PT.
