Ideas on Fire is heading to the University of Michigan next week to teach a workshop on writing and publishing your first book (usually your tenure book), specifically aimed at early-career faculty in global media studies.
Revising your dissertation into a book requires more than cutting the literature review and adding a new chapter. It requires framing the entire project from a student exercise to a cohesive scholarly contribution that diverse audiences will actually buy.
This hands-on, all-day workshop covers the entire process of writing and publishing your first book: how to identify your book’s audience, craft a new frame, revise the argument for that audience, find the best publisher for your project, and put together a successful book proposal.
Attendees will also workshop their book proposal draft, getting feedback from a developmental editor and an publisher acquisitions editor.
