Book Proposals

Cass Research Workshop #1

Have you got a research idea or practice research portfolio suited to being made into a book? Or an idea for a non-fiction book which might appeal to an audience beyond your academic discipline? Well, there are two words for what you should do next: ‘book proposal’. In the non-fiction world, publishers will ask an author to submit this key document (and not the entire book) as a first step to transforming your book idea into a reality. However, if you want it to emerge from the slush pile, the proposal must be clear, thoroughly researched, and ironclad.

Chaired by Professor Anne Karpf, this workshop will help sculpt your book proposal with a series of activities and presentations to demystify the process. The function of peer review; book proposal templates; case study of a published author from The Cass; and presentation and Q+A with Elizabeth Webster, Senior Commissioning Editor from RIBA Publishing.

Please note this workshop takes place in the Tower building TM1-05.

Registration is essential as spaces are limited.
