Nonfiction Book Writing: Master Class
Polish your sample chapters or manuscript for publication
- Discussions Tuesdays 9-10pm ET, 8 sessions full schedule
You've taken your nonfiction book manuscript or sample chapters as far as you can, but there's another level to reach before securing a book deal. This workshop is for writers who are seeking to do the serious revision that can bring a good idea to its fullest realization.
In this intensive workshop -- limited to 12 students -- hone your story arc, character development, setting, voice, point of view, level of diction, and every element of your manuscript. Each week you will receive detailed feedback from the instructor and your classmates as you work toward polishing your sample chapters or manuscript for submission to agents and book publishers. You'll learn how to navigate the publishing world to be in the best position to get published.
By the end of class, you will have:
Up to 80 polished pages of your nonfiction book and next steps for submitting it to literary agents.
This class is purely workshop-based and does not contain written lectures.
This class is for students working toward a polished manuscript. Apply with a note to explain your interest in this topic and goals for the course. Please include a two-page writing sample.
