This is a class co-sponsored by MI and San Francisco Writers Conference/San Francisco Writers Foundation
One reason why now’s the best time to be a writer is that publishers buy most nonfiction from proposals. But whether you want to sell or publish your book, a proposal will help ensure your success. You can learn what to do and know to make your book as good and successful as you want it to be. After hearing about proposals, you will share your idea and discuss how to present, publish, and promote it--a fun, creative process.
- What agents and editors need to say “Yes!”
- How to set your literary and publishing goals
- How to generate maximum excitement with the fewest words
- How to get the best agent, editor, publisher, and deal for your book
- Whether self-publishing is the best option for you and your book
