Crafting an Academic Book Proposal

Learn the elements of a compelling book proposal for scholarly presses. Focusing on interdisciplinary academic monographs and edited collections, we cover identifying the right press, connecting with acquisitions editors, submission timelines, cover letters, and writing the proposal itself.

Revising Your Dissertation into a Book

We address finding a new frame for the project, using your (new) audiences to guide the revision process, identifying what needs to be cut or added, and constructing the strong narrative arc necessary to turn the project from a dissertation into a scholarly book.

Book Marketing for Academics

We show you how to build your author platform and get the word out about your awesome new book. From social media plans and author websites to book tours and conference exhibits, we help explain how to find your core audience.

From Research to Writing

Getting started is the hardest part of any dissertation. We teach graduate students how to organize their research into dissertation chapters—both large-scale (across the dissertation as a whole) and small-scale (within each chapter itself).

Dissertation Writing Plans

Developing a writing routine is crucial to actually finishing your dissertation. We help students craft a holistic dissertation writing plan, timeline, and personalized writing routine that allows them to write regularly, meet their goals, work well with advisors, and avoid burning out.
