More importantly, in the interests of fairness, please submit these documents by 21:59 on Sunday, 8 April 2018. Please send them by e-mail to the Editing and Publishing e-mail address.

i. The concept note.
ii. The private note to the publishing manager with the author CV(s).
iii. The proposal letter to the author(s).
iv. The look-and-feel of the book (for designers) and/or the design brief and blurb (for editors).
v. The marketing strategy.

Please send these as MS Word (or better, PDF) documents set in a decent and easily legible font (12-point Times New Roman for the notes and letters, but an equivalent will do). If you send images, please send low-resolution ones below 1 MB in size - reserve the higher-resolution versions for your presentation. The final presentation need not be sent, but the documentation must be, so we have enough time to read them.
