Request For Proposals - Book Celebrating PEI Women in Business

14 Apr 2023 2:42 PM | Anonymous

Summary of Project: To create a book reflecting the contributions of women in business in Prince Edward Island. We see this book as a celebration of PEI business women over the years. The focus will be PEI women who created and led their businesses despite the odds and will include examples of female trailblazers from various industries. It will begin with an introduction to PEIBWA's 30-year history and contributions.

  • Outline and manage the steps to get the book to print.

  • Create a detailed table of contents and develop the manuscript (with support from the PEIBWA team).   

  • Recommend ideal format and page length for the book.

  • Include profiles, photos and interviews in the book. 

  • Create and manage the cover design. 

  • Copyedit, provide sample spreads for the PEIBWA team to review. 

  • Full typeset / book design of the manuscript. 

  • Once the manuscript is approved by both teams, provide a thorough copy edit and proofread. 

  • Conduct a final proofread. 

  • Prime book project management, operations, liaison with editors, book designer, printer, distributor and any other team members. 

  • Coordinate printing quotes, timelines and file delivery to the printers, and provide print run recommendations.
