					INTELLECT EDITOR QUESTIONNAIRE
Thank you for considering Intellect as a potential publisher for your book. We welcome proposals from both new and experienced authors producing original scholarly work in areas of creative practice and popular culture. Once completed, this questionnaire provides us with all the information we need in order to make a sound assessment of the proposal, and to ensure that we are the right publisher for your project. Please note, we do not publish outside of our rather broad subject areas of art and design, theatre and music, film studies, media and culture. We are not keen on previously published material, textbooks, readers, companions and overviews that are aimed at the general reader. Although we do not publish PhD theses they can often be a good starting point for consideration as a research monograph. EDITOR INFORMATION Name: Position and Affiliation: Professional Address:
