Publishing a book represents, for many faculty, the ultimate scholarly challenge. In fact the prestige surrounding book publishing may be so intimidating that it prevents faculty from even drafting a proposal, let alone approaching prospective publishers. In this workshop Stephen Brookfield will draw on his experience as an author and editor of 12 books to outline the main elements of a book proposal. He will bring examples of some of his successful book proposals to distribute to participants and outline the chief steps in preparing a proposal. Faculty are encouraged to bring ideas or specific questions to discuss with Stephen.
Workshop leader: Stephen Brookfield is Distinguished University Professor at the University of St. Thomas. He has published 12 books with 5 different publishers and is a 4-time winner of the Cyril Houle World Award for Literature in Adult Education. His work has been translated into Chinese, German, Korean and Finnish.
