Panelists from a variety of academic disciplines will share why they have written scholarly books for a wide audience, and participants will be encouraged to discuss the advantages and disadvantages, challenges and benefits of senior faculty’s writing for the public. They will also offer some how-to’s, including envisioning one’s audience, drafting a prospectus, and placing essays in magazines.
