Crafting Book Proposals
The book proposal is a key step for many nonfiction projects on the road to publication. It not only outlines the content of the book but makes the business case to agents or publishers for why it will succeed in the market. This presentation will cover the important elements of a proposal, common pitfalls, and how editors can help authors create a polished and persuasive document.
