To sell a nonfiction book, you need to complete a book proposal. It’s that simple. Part literary piece, marketing pitch, and business plan, there’s an art to book proposal. In this course, we’ll cover the various elements of the book proposal, with homework designed to guide you to a working draft of a proposal by the end of class. The course will touch on all types of nonfiction, with a primary focus on narrative nonfiction on any subject.
