Book publishing doesn’t have to be awful. My company, The Outside Reader, helps scholarly authors have better publishing experience and write better books. But aside from working with clients one-on-one, I also offer publishing workshops to university departments and programs. The format varies, but one of the more popular versions includes a 90-minute combo presentation Q&A, followed by lightning-round 15-minute meetings with individuals. The format can be customized for graduate students nearing completion of their Ph.D.s, postdocs and assistant professors, or more senior scholars hoping to break out of the monograph.
Why am I telling you this now? Two recent workshops in New York reminded how much I love doing these. I also have just a few slots remaining in an online course I’m teaching in May. Just drop me a line at my editorial address, audra at theoutsidereader dot com, if you’re interested in finding out more.
