Warwick Manuscript Development Sessions

CSGR has held Warwick Manuscript Development (WMD) workshops for early career scholars since 2009. Open to all authors in the fields of International Relations and International Political Economy, WMD Sessions provide a forum for first-time book authors to receive intensive advice from established academic authors, editors, and publishers. In the sessions the discussants play the role of a reviewer for an established academic press and provide constructive feedback on a book proposal and introductory chapter from the authors and also raise questions about the book’s audience and market.
