How to get your book published

Date(s) Tuesday 18 November 2008
Venue Manchester Metropolitan University, Oxford Road, Geoffrey Manton Building, Room GM227
Organised by ESCalate

Have you an idea for an education book or even something half written or completely written and are not sure how to proceed? If so, this workshop is for you.

ESCalate ITE at the University of Cumbria invites you to this workshop on how to publish your book, presented by Dr Helen Fairlie, Senior Editor, Education, from SAGE publications. Dr Fairlie’s experience in this field gives her the expertise to discuss all aspects of book publishing for a range of possible publishers. It is an interactive workshop which covers all you need to know about academic book publishing: writing a proposal, contracts, developing script, production etc. It is concerned with general skills – what makes a good proposal, how to ‘sell’ it to a publisher - and the techniques shared with delegates would work in approaching any publisher.

Who is it for?

This workshop would be suitable for a range of staff involved in teacher education, including novice writer/researchers and all those who just want to know more about how publishing works.

Places at this workshop are limited so book straight away to avoid disappointment!
