The Nonfiction Book Proposal
Writers of nonfiction books (including travel and memoir) often need a book proposal to attract agents and publishers. But writing this marketing tool is very different from writing the book itself. This one-day class will give you the information you need to structure your proposal, using examples from several books that sold this way. In these four hours, you’ll be given prompts to help you identify your readers, analyze your competition, and gather what you need to complete your proposal. Recommended for nonfiction writers who have a clear book idea as well as those with a complete first draft.
