HOW TO WRITE A BOOK PROPOSAL
Are you struggling with how to begin your NON-FICTION book?
This class will get you started. It will cover the essentials of writing and organizing a book proposal, from cover letter, marketing plan and promotional ideas, to sample chapter(s) synopsis and headlines. The class will also include critique sessions and creative writing exercises to give you added confidence and momentum.
At the end of this workshop, you should have the knowledge and expertise to complete a marketable book proposal.
Dates: Dates to be Announced
- The Overview. What the book is about. Why are you writing the book? How are you uniquely qualified to write it? Who will your reader be? What other books, similar to the one you propose, already exist?
- Annotated Table of Contents. Chapter titles and brief descriptions of content. Descriptions will be in narrative rather than outline form.
- Sample Chapter.
- Author Bio. Appropriate articles written by the author, or about the subject of the proposal must be included — in addition to the bio.
