2009 From Book Labs to Publishing Liaisons
From Book Labs to Publishing Liaisons: University-based Programs for Authors
A growing number of universities are investing in efforts to support faculty authors in publishing books. Often housed in the Office of the Provost, these initiatives provide an evolving menu of services. Faculty authors—from assistant professors to emeriti—consult with these programs for help with issues that range from developmental editing of manuscripts or book proposals, to writer’s block, to communicating and negotiating with publishing houses.
Moderator: Amy Benson Brown, Director, Manuscript Development Program, Emory University Panelists: Steven Feldman, Book Publications Officer, Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies, U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum; Carole Sargent, Director, Office of Scholarly and Literary Publications, Georgetown University; Rebecca Sestili, Author-Publisher Liaison, University of Michigan
