In this class, we will examine all the elements that go into creating a winning non-fiction book proposal. From sample chapters to extended tables of contents to market research and publicity ideas, publishers expect authors to follow a formula and to do much of the work for them! Show publishers how your book is similar to other books that have sold, yet is different enough to find its own audience. We will discuss what's required in a proposal, and attendees will have the opportunity to begin create one -- real or hypothetical!
