Conference Proceeding: The Path to Publishing

How is a Jewish book created? We will examine how a book goes from an idea in a writer’s head to a finished product on a library shelf. What are the steps in the process, particularly the less familiar ones? How does each person who touches the manuscript shape the final book? What additional steps does a Jewish book go through, such as fact checking or PJ Library considerations? The goal of this session is to include multiple facets of publishing that are not usually discussed but influence the book such as art direction, copyediting, and marketing.
