In this workshop, the 2020 BACLS Edited Collection Prize winner, Jennifer Cooke, discusses the dos and don’ts of producing an edited collection with examples from her own experience. Drawing upon the first few editorial projects she did which stemmed from a conference up to The New Feminist Literary Studies BACLS prize book, which also won a Choice Outstanding Title 2021 award. Topics covered will include: how to conceive of an editing project, getting a contract, the commissioning process, the work that editing others is, common problems encountered and how to navigate them, publication and post-publication advice. Particular focus will be given to considering how and why The New Feminist Literary Studies has done so well.
