Pre-Con Workshop: From Concept to Book with Cynthia Miller and Stephen Ryan

PreConBookWondering how to turn that terrific idea, conference paper, or article into a book-length publication? This workshop, conducted by author and editor Cynthia Miller and Stephen Ryan, Senior Editor for Rowman & Littlefield, will focus on practical suggestions for moving from “I’ve got a great idea,” to a book proposal, and beyond. We’ll talk about how to recognize the difference between an idea suited to a chapter and one that will carry a whole volume, how to add breadth and dimension to existing article-length work, and the nuts-and-bolts of how to draft a proposal to submit to a publisher. Feel free to bring material from current projects to discuss and work on!
