Every creative nonfiction writer seeking traditional publication, including memoirists, will need to write a book proposal. While there’s no way to escape the work involved, you can make the process manageable—and maybe even fun—if you understand how this document functions, what essential questions it must answer, and how your responses can lead to a successful one. During this 75-minute webinar, we’ll explore the seven parts of every book proposal, the essential questions each section answers, and how to tackle the proposal process while feeling good about your project and your author platform.
