How Do Successful Authors Write Book Proposals?

You’ve got a great book in your head, but how do you get the idea down on paper so a publisher will bring it to life? By penning an unforgettable proposal!

During our $79 half-day workshop, Writing a Killer Nonfiction-Book Proposal, you’ll learn what to put in — and leave out of — an ironclad proposal from industry insiders in the know, including two successful authors who’ve been there and done that:

  • Ken Ackerman. A lawyer as well as a writer, Ken is the author of five works of narrative history. His Boss Tweed: The Rise and Fall of the Corrupt Pol Who Conceived the Soul of Modern New York was named a New York Times Notable Book of the Year.  
  • Paul Dickson. The author of more than 60 books, Paul has concentrated on narrative nonfiction (Leo Durocher: Baseball’s Prodigal Son; Sputnik: The Shock of the Century) and a broad range of reference and novelty books, including The Dickson Baseball Dictionary and Toasts, with over 400,000 hardcover copies in print. 

Don’t miss your chance to hear from pros like these on Sat., Feb. 3rd, from 9AM-noon, at the Garrett Park Town Hall, 10814 Kenilworth Ave., Garrett Park, MD. Click HERE to register now!
