Is your family history ready for publication? Find out the next steps in this revealing discussion about the publishing process with Teresa Baer, managing editor of the Indiana Historical Society Press. This workshop will cover self-publishing as well as traditional publishing in books and periodicals. Baer will tell how to locate opportunities for publication in print and online and how to match your work to publishers’ audiences. Topics will also include the submissions process, standard publishing contracts, and marketing your work.

Presented by M. Teresa Baer. A public historian, author, and editor, M. Teresa Baer publishes the award-winning journal, The Hoosier Genealogist: Connections and its counterpart, Online Connections (https://indianahistory.org/research/family-history/family-history-online-resources/). She is also editor in charge of books for schools and books on immigration and ethnic history among others at the IHS Press. Baer authored the booklet Indianapolis: A City of Immigrants (IHS Press, 2012), which, through generous donations, has been distributed to schools, cultural organizations, and other groups throughout central Indiana. She also compiled and edited (with Geneil Breeze) the award-winning book Finding Indiana Ancestors: A Guide to Historical Research (IHS Press, 2007); and has published numerous book chapters and magazine articles on both historical and genealogical topics. Her latest, “History at the Crossroads: What the Combined Study of Genealogy, History, Education, and Communication Can Teach Us,” was published in the fall 2020 issue of the Journal of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Baer has a bachelor’s degree focusing on global history, a certificate in international studies, and a master’s degree in comparative history from Indiana University at Indianapolis.
