Most non-fiction book contracts are signed on the basis of a detailed proposal. Preparing a proposal can be daunting, but without a clear, well-organized pitch, even the best book idea will have trouble finding a publishing home. In this course, you will learn: why publishers want to see a proposal before they see your book; what a non-fiction proposal should include; how to find publishers to submit your proposal to; and what happens after your proposal is accepted.
A full course refund will only be provided if you withdraw from a course prior to the course start date. For courses with more than one class, a refund, less a minimum $15 administrative fee may be issued if you withdraw prior to the second class. Depending on your method of payment, a refund will be either mailed to you or credited to your credit card.
