Faculty Book Manuscript Workshops  -Fall 2022 

 Faculty Book Manuscript Workshops are an opportunity for generating constructive, informed criticism on near-final book manuscripts, when authors can most effectively utilize such feedback. The program allows faculty to invite an expert in their field to review the manuscript. The expert presents their thoughts on the manuscript, followed by a response from the author and discussion with a broader group of invited faculty. 

CHSS will provide an honorarium of $500 to each manuscript reviewer and anticipates making two or three awards.

To apply please compile the items below into one file, and submit to by September 9, 2022.   Successful applicants will be notified by mid-September.

  • CV
  • Brief description of the book, not exceeding 250 words, including a note on the current state of the manuscript.
  • Book proposal
  • Short statement, not exceeding 250 words, of any career related factors impacting this process, and why this process would be useful at this particular time; how this fits into career advancement plans.
