Writing the Non-Fiction Book Proposal

January 19 - February 23, 2021
Tuesdays, 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. (six sessions)
online via Zoom

$285

Writing a book proposal is the best first step to writing a nonfiction book for both adults and young readers. An excellent proposal helps you organize your ideas, understand the competition, and can help you land a publishing contract even before you write the book. This six-week class will take you step-by-step through the major parts of the nonfiction book proposal: the query letter, overview, competitive analysis, marketing and promotion, author background, outline and sample chapter. Bring an idea, and be ready to write. The class includes extensive handouts and questionnaires to guide your work.

Class outcomes:

  • By the end of this six week workshop, students will leave with a rough draft of a nonfiction book proposal.
