Publishing Your First Academic Monograph: Advice from Editors

Publishing Your First Academic Monograph: Advice from Editors
A video recording of a round table discussion sharing advice and tips from acquisitions editors and series editors from the University of Nebraska Press and Liverpool University Press. Hear Bridget Barry, Heather Stauffer, Chloé Johnson, and Denis Provencher talk about their lists and series, then answer your real questions like: When and how should I approach editors? When should I submit proposals? What do proposals look like? How many words are you expecting my book to be? How much material can be pre-published? Originally a roundtable as part of the 20th- and 21st-century French and Francophone Studies International Colloquium.
