Writers will also be responsible for the design of their book with the help of Stethoscope’s design editor.

Stethoscope Press deadline approaching

From the one and only, most extraordinary Amy Zhang ’15

Hello budding authors! A reminder that Stethoscope Press book proposals are due Tuesday, September 23 at midnight. For the
application instructions, please see previous post: here

 

A few FAQ:

Q: Can I submit more than one book proposal?
A: No.

Q: I have so many ideas for my book. What kind of details should I
include in the proposal?
A: You should develop one idea thoroughly but mention other
possibilities. We don’t expect a completely unified, coherent idea
right now. So just give us a good understanding of what’s going on in
your mind in terms of themes to explore, style, etc. Do what you want
to do, not what you think we’ll like.

Direct any more questions to Amy Zhang (azhang@wesleyan.edu) and Kate Weiner (kweiner@wesleyan.edu).

Due date: Tuesday 9/23 at midnight!
