Research seminar: Preparing an Effective Book Proposal. 11 Jan at 2pm on Zoom. All welcome

The FMC Research Process Seminars recommence this week and all staff and research students are warmly invited to attend. As always, this week’s topic is practically-oriented and should be of relevance to anyone considering preparing a book proposal, whatever your discipline.

Preparing an Effective Book Proposal – by Dr Chris Miles (BU)

This session looks at what publishers are looking for in a book proposal — it will cover such questions as: who will be evaluating my proposal, what are the main questions publishers want answered, how detailed do you have to be, how much do I need to ‘market’ this thing, do I need to provide sample chapters, and what are good strategies for success? I’ll be tackling all this from my experience getting three different monographs accepted by Routledge and Palgrave.

Tuesday 11th January 2-3pm on Zoom.
