To put together your book proposal for an academic press, you must anticipate the priorities of the acquisitions editor and present your manuscript as dynamic and timely. Tweed helps you make the pitch, including identifying your target readers and surveying the book’s market.
Whether the goal is an academic position, grant funding, or acceptance into your top-choice PhD program, strategic feedback is available for all types of academic application materials: cover letters, teaching philosophies, research proposals, CVs, and so forth.
When you are faced with the prospect of revising and resubmitting your journal article for publication, it’s key to understand clearly the feedback you’ve been given and proceed in a way that responds appropriately while making the most of your time and retaining the core intentions of your piece.
Years of Tweed
After several years of freelance editing, I officially founded Tweed Editing LLC in 2010.
… and counting! Scholars from a very wide range of disciplines have worked with Tweed: literature, economics, biological anthropology, history, cultural studies—the list is always growing.
Tweed clients come from institutions all over the world: small liberal arts colleges, RU/VH universities, state schools, and the Ivy League alike.
The journal will be moving ahead with publication! It seems that everything you touch ends up successfully being published. You have the magic touch! I am grateful not only for your careful edits but also the encouraging, constructive voice you always bring to your edits and feedback.
