The Art of the Nonfiction Book Proposal

Ever since the explosive success of In Cold Blood, the style of nonfiction that reads like fiction continues to evolve. For anyone who has a compelling story in mind, you’ll learn what editors and agents look for in a narrative nonfiction proposal and how to wrestle a concept for a book into a clear story. The instructor’s first book proposal went to auction with ten New York publishing houses and became a New York Times best-seller. She’s since sold additional nonfiction narratives, all based on proposals.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online until further notice. If there's a possibility that your class might take place in person, you will be notified in advance. Even if classes can be held in person, there will always be a hybrid option to participate via Zoom.

Classes with "Zoom" in the title will be held via Zoom even after our doors open. Classes listed as "Online" will be held on Wet Ink, our platform for asynchronous learning.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
