A thorough book proposal is required for most non-fiction authors to land a deal with a publisher or representation by a literary agent. In this three-hour session, you will learn how to shape a non-fiction book proposal that will open doors. You’ll discover each of the elements required (from competitive title analysis to author bio, chapter summaries, and more) and how to make them stand out. You will learn about common editorial issues with non-fiction book proposals and how to help position a book for the marketplace. Visit the registration page for more details.
