If you joined me and the Editorial Freelancers Association on September 30, 2015, then you now know “How to Write a Winning Book Proposal.”
It has long been the case that nonfiction writers, instead of penning a complete manuscript, could sell their ideas based solely on well-developed book proposals. An extended marketing pitch, the book proposal is a unique document that any writer of nonfiction must master. During my presentation I shared how editors and agents evaluate potential acquisitions and what your proposal must contain to get the coveted attention of these publishing professionals. I explained what goes into a contract-winning book proposal, where to find important information, and how to evaluate your own material to ensure you’re presenting your project—and yourself—in the best possible light.
I would like to thank Education Coordinator Jennifer Maybin for the invite. I’ll be running this webinar for the EFA again on December 3 at 7pm. You can register online or contact Jennifer at Education@the-efa.org.
