How to Craft and Submit

a Winning Book Proposal in 4 Weeks

Facilitators: Badia Ahad, PhD with Guest Expert Danielle Kasprzak

You may have a completed dissertation, a few rough book chapters, or even journal articles you’d like to transform into a coherent book project—but where do you start? The path to getting your book published begins with a clear, well-crafted, and persuasive proposal.


In this Multi-Week Course, you will be guided through a step-by-step process to complete your book proposal within four weeks, learn how to translate your research projects for a broader market, and receive invaluable advice about how to approach acquisition editors at academic presses.

About the Facilitators

Badia Ahad, PhD, is an Associate Professor of English and Director of Undergraduate Programs in English at Loyola University Chicago and is the author of Freud Upside Down: African-American Literature and Psychoanalytic Culture (U of Illinois Press, 2010). Her areas of specialization are post-World War II African American literature, cultural studies, the history of psychoanalysis, and psychoanalytic theory.


Danielle Kasprzak is the Humanities Editor at University of Minnesota Press. She acquires titles in a wide range of humanities and interdisciplinary fields, including American Studies, literary criticism, cultural studies, and cinema and media studies. Within these fields, her primary editorial interests are gender and sexuality, critical race and ethnic studies, cultural history, avant-garde and experimental cinema, and critical examinations of digital culture and new media. She is passionate about manuscripts that promote radical understandings of social justice and speak to broader audiences, especially within the fields of disability studies, childhood studies, queer/transgender studies, and feminism, and she values interdisciplinary, transdisciplinary, and crossdisciplinary work. Danielle also acquires titles for our Forerunners: Ideas First series, a thought-in-process series of short, breakthrough digital works.
