UPEI Internal Publication Awards: Fall 2018 Call for Applications

The awards of $7,500 each will be disbursed to Island Studies Press to cover publication costs (including editing, photo and other permissions, design, printing, marketing, and other costs associated with publishing a book).

Authors will also see their manuscript reviewed through a peer-review process.
ELIGIBILITY: Manuscripts that are written and/or edited by UPEI faculty (including contract and sessional faculty) are eligible. These may be single-authored results of academic research projects; textbooks; edited proceedings of a conference; or works of fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry, or drama that pertain to the author(s)' discipline.
