MB Learn Offers One-Day Discount on Nonfiction Book Proposal Course

Today our Mediabistro Learn department is offering a special one-day 25 percent discount off any online or in-person course, workshop, or seminar. That discount applies to the Advanced Nonfiction Book Proposal, a six-week course in New York City.

Here’s more about the course: “In this advanced class, you’ll work closely with an established literary agent and former editor on your completed draft of a proposal. Through lectures and heavy workshopping, you’ll fine-tune your title, subtitle, pitch letter, comparable titles, author bio, table of contents, and sample material to get your proposal ready to submit to agents … Not all proposals are created equal. Come see exactly how twenty of this instructor’s proposal students have published books with major publishers.”

Below, see a list of published books by former students of this class. The class will be taught by Ryan Fischer-Harbage (pictured), an agent at the Fischer-Harbage Agency. He has also worked as an editor at Little, Brown & Company, the Penguin Group, and Simon Spotlight Entertainment.

Students who have taken this class have published:
The Creative Girl’s Guide To Having It All: How to Brave the Odds and Make Your Way in a Creative Career (Perseus/Running Press), The Unlikely Lavender Queen: A Memoir of Unexpected Blossoming (Broadway), Cheer! Three Teams on a Quest for College Cheerleading’s Ultimate Prize (Simon and Schuster), Something New: Wedding Etiquette for Rule Breakers, Traditionalists, and Everyone In Between (Simon Spotlight), The Hudson Rediscovered (Free Press), Read My Hips (Harmony), and more.
