Hosted by the Acquisitions Editorial Committee.
For many acquisitions editors, book series form the backbone of their list, providing shape and identity to a press’s output. Relationships with series editors are central to successful commissioning, and in a best-case scenario, series editors will act as valuable ambassadors for the press within the wider academic community. In this hangout we’ll hear from four acquisitions editors at different stages of their publishing careers who will discuss the opportunities and potential challenges of this crucial relationship.
