Jodi Helmer

You have an idea for a nonfiction book—or maybe you’ve written a manuscript—but have no idea what to do next. To capture the attention of an agent or publisher, you need a proposal. This class will highlight the elements of a successful book proposal from choosing a title, analyzing the competition, and creating a publicity plan to writing a sample chapter that piques the attention of a publisher. Step-by-step instructions and in-class critiques will help you polish your proposal and get it ready to send. We’ll also cover important topics like whether to work with an agent, negotiating an advance, and understanding your contract. This class is for aspiring non-fiction authors; we will not be covering fiction or memoir. Note: This class meets 4 Tuesdays: October 1, 8, 15 & 22.
