2013 New Funding Opportunities
Crowdfunding may seem antithetical to the mission of the university press. We're committed to publishing books because of their scholarly value, sometimes in spite of their projected sales. Yet university presses and our partners are experimenting with crowdfunding in novel and productive ways. Join an expert panel discussing creative forms of crowdfunding, from building a community of press authors through a royalty donation program, to funding books through Kickstarter, to supporting open access editions. Learn how crowdfunding can help your press strengthen relationships with constituents, including authors, community members, and librarians.
Chair: Jason Weidemann, Senior Acquisitions Editor, University of Minnesota Press

Sarah Murphy, Promotions Manager, Wayne State University Press
Frances Pinter, Executive Director, Knowledge Unlatched
