Writers spend years preparing their manuscript, only to follow it up with a hastily-written proposal that often proves unsuccessful. As a marketing specialist and former editor of a major New York publisher, Alice Acheson can spot the "no go" elements of a project and guide you to a bound-for-success book proposal. Enhanced with extensive handouts, the class will discuss how to move beyond the "gate keepers", what agents and editors look for in proposals, what will stop the reader from requesting more material, and how the cover letter and synopsis differ.
