Memoirs sell with proposals–whether or not you’ve already written the book. From your proposal, agents and publishers evaluate your idea, platform and writing. In this workshop, you’ll learn proposal style and format, craft about 30% of a proposal for the book you’ve written or want to write, and leave with a template for the rest.
We’ll discuss how essays, articles, and social media improve your platform; determine whether you’re telling the right story from the right place; and develop an outline to write the next draft–or start the first one!
Note: Pre-conference intensive workshops are optional add-ons and require separate registration — $60. Workshops run for three hours with a 15-minute snack break included (coffee, tea, fruit, etc.)
