Free insights and motivation for authors
Two easy-to-read guides released by Aboriginal Studies Press provide information for authors. They’re available free, and they’re written by publishing and writing insiders for both published and intending authors.
An Information Kit for Indigenous Authors reveals what happens to authors when they approach publishers, the rights and responsibilities of authors and publishers, a little about contracts and how authors should present manuscripts. It can be read from start to finish, or a case study and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) make great starting points. Publishing language is explained in the margins of this attractive A4-sized illustrated guide.
Aboriginal Studies Press Publishing Style Guide for Authors and Editors is more than the usual style guide advising when to use italics and capital letters. It includes advice about different styles of writing, ways to present a manuscript, a quick grammar recap, how to proofread, checks for copyeditors and a list of further resources.
Both guides complement each other and support other information for authors on the Aboriginal Studies Press website.
