Wrangling and Writing a Book Proposal

April 8, 2019 - June 2, 2019

$365
Wrangling and Writing the Book Proposal Nonfiction Writing Course at One Lit Place onelitplace.com

 

The idea you have feels bigger than a magazine or newspaper article. It feels like a book.

But do you write the book first? Or do you find a publisher to back you?

Nonfiction manuscripts that are not memoirs begin as proposals before growing into book projects. Moving from how to structure your proposal, to the meaty chapter outline and excerpts, and to best-practice techniques for submitting to agents and publishers, this workshop will tackle the beastly (and often prosperous) animal that is the first steps to publishing your nonfiction book.

Come prepared to discuss your idea for a book and three books that are similar to the one you would like to write.

Instructor: Kenneth R. Rosen
