Early, Emerging
Learn about the acquisition process and how to construct a strong proposal to get the attention of a publisher. Find out how to get a professional proposal together that will help showcase your writing.

See how synopses and pitches can also help keep you motivated and on track when you wander into the depths of research, and give you the confidence to treat your fledgling work as the foundation of a great book.

You will learn

  • how publishers make decisions
  • how to write crystal clear proposals
  • how to make it easy for publishers to evaluate what you are submitting
  • how to use your pitch as a motivational tool.

This workshop develops employment-related skills.
