Art of Acquisitions Hangout: “Welcome aboard.”: A Panel about Hiring

Hiring is among the most exciting and energizing tasks of an acquisitions department—but that doesn’t make it any less nerve wracking or fraught with danger. Whether you can’t attract the applicants you want or your cup runneth over with dazzling candidates, whether you’re looking for a new intern or your small press’s first EIC, this hangout is your opportunity to glean sage advice from crafty veterans as they hold forth and field your queries.

Moderated by Zack Gresham, Acquisitions Editor, Vanderbilt University Press

With panelists Mary Francis, Director, University of Pennsylvania Press; Larin McLaughlin, Editorial Director, University of Washington Press; and Priya Nelson, Senior Editor, Princeton University Press
