I am Senior Acquisitions Editor at Cornell University Press where I am also Editorial Director of Three Hills, a new regional trade imprint for books about New York State and New York City. I am looking for proposals for trade books addressing, among other topics, the history, natural history, arts and culture, politics and policy, sports, and current events of the State and City. My email is [email protected] and I tweet at @michaelmcgandy
Starting from Fall 2017, Three Hills, a new imprint of Cornell University, will publish smart, informative, entertaining, and provocative books about New York State and the Northeast.
From history to unusual hobbies, from politics to pop culture, from the environment to the economy, from sports to tourist spots, Three Hills will cover the Empire State, its people, heritage, Cornell University, and much more.
This new, regional imprint solidifies Cornell University Press as a leader among university presses, bringing our attention to detail and impeccable standards to topics of interest to the savvy, independent book buyer.
As we approach our 150th anniversary, America’s first university press continues to innovate and to seize opportunities in the market. Our reputation has been staked on publishing scholarship of the highest order, but we also believe that our mission includes offering books that appeal to everyone.
Cornell University, New York State, New York City, and the Northeast are replete with subjects that fascinate each and every one of us, and we are determined to publish them in industry-leading ways, disseminate them using pioneering methods, and showcase them from Staten Island to Lake Erie and beyond.
