Flat World Authors
Welcome to a (flat) world for authors. If you want to participate in a publishing revolution that expands access to information and knowledge, while still generating handsome royalties, this Flat World might be for you!
Who is Flat World Knowledge?
We were started by long-time publishing industry execs driven by their conviction that the old model was broken, and that there was a better way to serve the needs of authors, faculty, and students. With trusted colleagues and advisors, they devised a disruptive business model, built around great authors, that is changing the future of this great industry.
What are we looking for in an author?
You are a highly accomplished and committed teacher. You can bring vibrant teaching to the printed (or digital) page. You are known for your scholarship. You may have experience writing textbooks – most of our authors do. Or, you just have a killer idea and the drive to get it done. You’re for us!
What is our textbook model?
Faculty may tailor the book to their needs. Students may access their book and study aids online for a fair price or buy an affordable digital, or print format. Students get choice; faculty get control; authors earn rapid market share, greater royalties over time, and do some good!
Why publish with Flat World?
Because you care. You want to deliver unparalleled content to students but don’t think they should have to take out a loan to pay for it! You want to be well compensated. You want to partner with your publisher, not feel like a contractor. You want to publish with Flat World Knowledge.
