Meet our Authors: Graeme Harper - July 2014

He is founding Editor-in-Chief of the journal New Writing: the International Journal for the Practice and Theory of Creative Writing, Co-Editor (with O.

Graeme is Dean of the Honors College, Professor at Oakland University, Michigan, USA, and an Honorary Professor in the United Kingdom.

Graeme explains his reasons for continuing to publish with Cambridge Scholars and the distinct role we play in the publishing community:

“I have worked with many presses, all around the world, and I can say that I have greatly enjoyed working with Cambridge Scholars, and the very fine results. 

When we see a still relatively new publisher joining the wider community of publishers, authors and editors we have to celebrate - especially when they arrive and grow with such enthusiasm and commitment. Whether an author, an editor or indeed another publisher, we each can appreciate this energy, and it helps invigorate things more widely. Cambridge Scholars has shown a commitment to advancing the exchange of human knowledge that is clearly very exciting. 

I look forward to our continued relationship and the excellent work going on at the press.”

Prof. Harper has rightly noted the qualities of enthusiasm, commitment, and energy that Cambridge Scholars Publishing brings to its activities -- qualities which, I would add, distinguish it from the more "established" publishers. It seems to me that CSP has fulfilled the need of the scholarly community for a forum that is flexible and innovative at the same time as it is daring and demanding.
