 Get your story sold with a good book proposal.

Novels are written before they are sold, but book length works of non-fiction are often sold to publishers by way of a book proposal. A book proposal explains to a publisher what the book will be about, who its audience will be and why you, the author, should be the one to write it. In this workshop taught by publisher and author Kim Cooper Findling, learn the nuts and bolts of putting together a professional book proposal that will wow an acquisitions editor and land you a book deal.
