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.

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.
