Book Proposal Accelerator Scholarships

Happy weekend, everyone. This is just a quick note to announce that I’m going to be offering five scholarships (i.e. free enrollments) for the Winter 2021 session of the Manuscript Works Book Proposal Accelerator. I would like these spots to go to newsletter subscribers who are working on scholarly book proposals without institutional support and are genuinely unable to afford the $295 out-of-pocket enrollment fee for the Accelerator. If that’s you, either reply to this newsletter or send an email with the subject line “Accelerator Scholarship” to with a brief description of your book project and target publisher(s) by December 8, 2020. If I get more applicants than there are free spots, I will prioritize scholars of color and the precariously (un)employed, so please indicate if you identify with either or both of those groups.

You’re welcome to forward this message to a friend. Just make sure they know they need to be subscribed to the newsletter to be eligible for a scholarship.

If you’d like to find out more information about the Book Proposal Accelerator or enroll (sans scholarship) in the Winter 2021 session, you can do that here.
