Workshop

Nonfiction Book Proposal Workshop

With: 
Sarah Lohman

Join published author Sarah Lohman for an introductory workshop on putting together a nonfiction book proposal, getting your proposal published, and the ins and outs of the publishing process. We’ll go over how to develop your idea, compose a book proposal, and find an agent. We'll also cover: What happens when your book is bought, the highs and lows of the writing process, the importance of fact checking and footnoting, and what to expect leading up to you publish date.

This class is for you if you are: a nonfiction writer or someone interested in nonfiction writing and relatively new at writing books and proposals. We will not be talking about self-publishing or publishing fiction.

Sarah will share her own experiences. provide helpful handouts, and there will be plenty of time for questions. Come with a book idea you're willing to workshop. Bring a laptop (fully charged), because we're going to get some work done in class. You'll also receive homework assignments to complete between sessions that will bring you closer to completing a submittable book proposal. We'll share them in class and Sarah will offer one-on-one feedback.
