Publishing a scholarly book is a critical career achievement for scholars in the humanities and social sciences, and is often required for tenure and promotion. Come and hear from acquiring editors and marketing specialists from some of Canada’s top scholarly presses, who will offer their valuable advice for getting your book published and into bookstores, libraries and classrooms. You’ll also hear about funding opportunities for scholarly books in Canada.

Panelists: Emily Andrew (Senior Editor, UBC Press), Susan McIntosh (Associate Press Director & Marketing Director, McGill-Queen’s University Press), Lisa Quinn (Acquisitions Editor, Wilfrid Laurier University Press). Moderated by Jessica Clark (Awards to Scholarly Publications Program Coordinator).
