Nonfiction Authors – You Need This Workshop If – – –

Let’s say you have a great idea for a nonfiction book. Do you know what the first step is? If you answered, “write a great book,” you need my workshop.

Accept this basic rule: with nonfiction, you don’t submit the full manuscript to publishers. You submit a proposal, and it had better be good.

In the coming weeks, I’m presenting a special workshop on “How to Write a Nonfiction Book Proposal.” You will learn why the proposal is so critical, what the standard elements are, and how editors make their decisions. Lots of handouts, unlimited Q&A (that is, until they throw us out).

Here is the schedule so far:

And I’m asking for your help. If you, or someone you know, would be interested in this workshop, would you let me know so I can contact your library? And if you have a chance to mention it to the library yourself, that would be even better. I really want to do this workshop as widely as possible this coming year, because I am seriously troubled by how many people I meet who have no real idea how to create this vital document – something without which they have no hope of interesting a publisher. I’ll have two hours to share 30 years’ worth of experience in publishing.
