Writing Books for General Audiences

Academic journals and conferences are venues for specialist works by and for experts, engaging scholars in the ongoing quest to produce knowledge. But much of the research we do, if framed more broadly and written more engagingly, can appeal to audiences beyond the academy. In this session we consider how “crossover” academic books can engage general readers, and we offer a series of general tips on writing and publishing such books.
