Agents talk. Editors talk. Publishing is a small world and your book proposal only gets one shot at success. Learn which mistakes to avoid while preparing a winning proposal that will command a contract from an agent or publisher.

Last November, Swenson Book Development, LLC offered a workshop outlining what to include in a book proposal. This February, we continue the adventure with an intensive, three-hour workshop on how to write the contents of a book proposal, including a review and critique of your proposal-in-progress. You will learn, step-by-step, how to develop a marketing strategy and complete a competitive title analysis.

If you are a writer seeking to develop, revise, or refine a book proposal before sending it out to agents or acquisition editors, this workshop is for you.
