Introduction to Non-fiction Publishing featuring John Byram and Amy Gorelick of the University Press of Florida
Wednesday, April 16, 2008
Cook Hall Conference Room
Amy Gorelick, Senior Acquisitions Editor, and John Byram, Editor-in-Chief, will discuss the basics of getting your work published; submitting a proposal, when to submit a full manuscript, the review process, the production process, marketing and selling works of non-fiction, and things to avoid when working with a publisher. A question and answer period will follow the brief presentation, with an opportunity to meet and discuss your own work in detail with Ms. Gorelick.
The University Press of Florida, established in 1945, is the largest publisher in Florida and the second largest university press in the Southeast.
UPF's mission is to serve all universities in the SUS system: to answer questions, offer advice, and possibly publish your work.
