2024 TAA Conference on Textbook & Academic Authoring Receives Rave Reviews

Multiple attendees of the 2024 TAA Conference on Textbook & Academic Authoring, held in Nashville June 21-22, called it the best conference they had attended this year or even ever.

“The opportunity to share time with, and be inspired by, fellow authors who are proud of their craft and conscientious about their work is priceless,” said Karen Morris.

Christina Gushanas said: “Every session I attended was intriguing and applicable to my career in academia. Not everyone at my institution values academic writing, so to be surrounded by others who were excited about academic and textbook authoring was very motivating!”

Attendees from across the country representing a variety of writing disciplines gathered for sessions on artificial intelligence and authoring, copyright, DEI, writing strategies, productivity, marketing, contracts, and much more.

A big thank you to all of the presenters and attendees who contributed to a rich and engaging program. Special thanks to Platinum Sponsor XanEdu Publishing, Kendall Hunt Company, Bronze Sponsor Archstone Law.
