Hi Manuscript Workers,
This is just a reminder that enrollment for the Manuscript Works Book Proposal Accelerator will open tomorrow, May 1st, 2021, at 9am PDT. You will be able to enroll at courses.manuscriptworks.com. There will be two payment options, one for those who have the support of institutional funds for the program and one for those who are paying out of pocket. It’s on the honor system, so just choose the one that fits your situation.
More info about the Book Proposal Accelerator is here. To recap briefly, the Accelerator is right for you if:
You want to produce a pitchable prospectus for your scholarly book project this summer
You don’t know where to start on finding the right publishers for your book
You’re not yet sure how to frame your project so it will appeal to those publishers
You’re planning to pitch a revised dissertation OR a scholarly book that is not based on your diss (both types of projects will work in the Accelerator!)
You’re a first-time author OR an already published book author
You’d like some structure and accountability to get this project done in manageable steps
You’ll feel more confident if you’ve had expert eyes on your proposal before you send it out to presses
I answer some additional questions about the Accelerator here. You can also reply to this email if you have questions that haven’t been answered yet. Hope to see you in June!
