Book Manuscript Workshops

Th Baldy Center sponsors workshops to assist UB authors in making their book manuscripts as strong as possible prior to publication. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. UB faculty are encouraged to submit applications when they feel they have a manuscript sufficiently developed to benefit from an intensive review by external experts. This page contains a listing of Book Manuscript Workshops hosted by the Center since 1999.
