Class: How to Write a Non-Fiction Book Proposal

Typewriter with paper scattered - conceptual imageIn fiction, you have to write the whole book to sell it. In non-fiction, agents and editors want a book proposal. Whether you’re planning on writing narrative non-fiction, memoir, cookbook, historical non-fiction or even a how-to book, you need to put together a non-fiction book proposal. In this six-week class starting July 20th, I’ll provide you with the tools and insight you need to help you develop a rough proposal within a few weeks. We’ll review actual proposals which led to six-figure book deals and review what agents and authors are looking for in the current marketplace. If you’ve stalled working on a proposal, or you’re not sure where to start, this class is for you.

This class will be held in Hugo House’s temporary digs at 1021 Columbia Street, Seattle, WA 98104. Cost is $220 for members, and $245 for non-members. Space is limited to 15 people. Sign up via the Hugo House site.
