This is a one-hour workshop to help non-fiction writers understand how to write a non-fiction book proposal and the pitch letter.
We'll go over the five components of a book proposal packet, the importance of the table of contents, and the 10-page writing sample. We will also cover how to research what agents want in their proposals, and how to craft your packet to fit each individual's need!
Then, we will discuss the elements of a strong 2-3 paragraph pitch email.
Workshop participants will receive a PDF with the proposal and pitch templates to help them as they work on their own packets. And, each person will get a free 30-minute follow up consultation with Brad once they have finished their writing their proposals!
There are no strings attached and no hidden or extra fees. It's perfect for early-stage career writers who are a bit daunted by the whole "how do I get an agent" process!
