Avoid Book Proposal Agita! It's time for the first edit of your book -- and time to begin collecting information for your book proposal. In class we will discuss which elements make a selling proposal and which parts of your book should be highlighted. Here you will learn how to convince an agent or editor to read your book proposal, how to craft that all-important marketing paragraph, how to avoid pitfalls that stop the reading, the difference between the query letter and the synopsis, and other insights into impressing the reader.
