So You're Thinking About Writing A Climate Book?
March 6, 2024, 2:00 pm-3:00 pm ETBook Publishing
John J. Berger, Ph.D., an environmental science and policy specialist, prize-winning author, and journalist, and Danielle Arigoni, an urban planner and community resilience expert, discuss their paths to publishing and promoting their books on climate.
Berger, ASJA member and author of Solving the Climate Crisis, will discuss the various reasons climate writing is a particularly difficult niche to enter to help those seeking to write on the topic understand the kinds of obstacles they will likely encounter.
Arigoni will discuss pitching the idea behind her first book, Climate Resilience in an Aging Nation, to an editor at Island Press, and the process (and challenges) of writing the 60,000-word manuscript in just seven months. She can also discuss some strategies and lessons learned as she shifts to the second most important part of writing a book: marketing it.
