Seminar: MIT Press and the Science of the Book Proposal
December 13, 2022 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm
KSJ is pleased to welcome three editors from MIT Press: Jeremy Matthews who oversees physical sciences, engineering, and mathematics; Beth Clevenger who oversees environmental studies, cities, and food; and Matthew Browne who oversees public and global health, psychology, and psychiatry. Each will speak about their recent successful acquisitions and what kind of proposals they are looking for. They will also give tips for what does and does not make a successful book, the importance of table of contents and chapter abstracts, and how considering potential media talking points can help structure the project’s narrative arc.
Please contact Learning and Events Coordinator Claire Sadar if you are interested in attending.
