PANEL DISCUSSION: Happily Ever After: Advice for Journalism Historians on Working with Book Editors and Publishers, Thurber Conference

Moderator: Jon Marshall, Northwestern University

Getting a book manuscript published takes many steps, some of which can be difficult to navigate. Authors must work with editors and other publishing staff to go through the peer review process, agree on contracts, finalize manuscripts, review page proofs, complete indexes, select covers, and gain positive publicity. This panel of book authors and a book series editor will share advice on what questions to ask editors and publishers, how to work with them in the most productive way, and what mistakes to avoid. The panel will include plenty of time for questions and conversation with the audience.
