Incentives in Publishing: From Book Proposal to Contract with Dr. David Pervin

Thu Feb 17, 2:00 - 3:00 PM (EST)
In person at the Faculty Hub or on Zoom at  

Insights into the incentives of authors, editors, publishers, and readers help demystify the book publishing process. In this session, participants will receive insight and tips for developing strategies to craft compelling pitches and proposals, for navigating the sometimes-fraught review process, and for understanding basic contract conditions. There will also be time set aside for Q&A. Dr. Pervin was an acquisitions editor at both commercial and university presses, including Oxford University Press, University of Chicago Press, and Palgrave Macmillan. He received a Ph.D. in political science from UCLA. This event will be held in the Faculty Hub on the third floor of Boatwright Library or on Zoom.
