HOW TO CONVERT A PhD THESIS INTO A BOOK

This workshop is tailored for academics who are interested in seeing their thesis leave the university library shelves and reach out to a wider audience, but need assistance on how to adapt their work into an accessible and publishable form. Helen Moffett was awarded a PhD in English from the University of Cape Town (UCT), where she has taught regularly for years. She has held fellowships at Princeton University and Mount Holyoke College in the United States. In publishing, Helen was Oxford University Press’s academic editor for four years. She continues to work as a journalist, freelance editor, manuscript assessor, trainer, mentor, researcher and consultant. She will be facilitating this workshop, and will provide the main pointers and the processes involved in the conversion of a thesis into a book.
