Guest speaker Dr. Judith Knight (Editor-at-Large for the University of Florida Press) will talk about the life cycle of book production (everything from timelines and deadlines to who does what when), the differences between types of presses, what they do, what they expect of authors, what they contribute to authors, and the review process (especially the e-review process). With over 30 years of publishing experience, and the acquisition of over 400 archaeology/ethnohistory volumes, Dr. Knight is truly a leader in the field of archaeological publication.
