The First Book Institute
Applications for the inaugural First Book Institute are due February 18, 2013.
Scholars who are at work on their first book and who hold a PhD and a tenure track position or postdoctoral fellowship are invited to apply for the week long First Book Institute, June 10-14, 2013, directed by Sean Goudie and Priscilla Wald. The Institute will feature workshops and presentations aimed at assisting participants in transforming their book projects into ones that promise to make the most significant impact possible on the field and thus land them a publishing contract with a top university press.
