Dear Screen-L Readers,

Many scholars excel at writing academic manuscripts but are less confident
when asked to pitch their work in the final stage ahead of submission: the
book proposal. *Laura Portwood-Stacer, **author of **The Book Proposal
Book* (Princeton
University Press), will break down the book proposal process in a clear and
attainable way and offer tips on how to (successfully!) pitch your proposal
to prospective university presses and academic publishers.

Laura Portwood-Stacer will provide some much-needed clarity on how to craft
a winning book proposal. You will get:


   Insight into how to grab the editor’s attention with a sharp project

   A step by step breakdown of the book proposal process, and


   Insider tips on how to define a target audience

*March 30 at 8:30 PM Israel time/ 6:30 PM GMT/ 1:30 PM EDT on Zoom*
