About the event

‘Getting Published: A Guide to Monograph Publishing’ is an online training event hosted by the RHS designed for early career historians. The focus of this ‘Getting Published’ session is monographs, with specific attention on how to move from a completed PhD to book proposal to a published monograph.

The event brings together publishers, series editors, academics and early career historians. It seeks to demystify the process of monograph publishing and provide practical advice and tips on how best to succeed.

The workshop combines brief presentations on the stages of the publishing process and the experience of getting published. We will include time for active audience participation in which your questions and concerns will be raised and discussed.
