Book proposals are sales pitches. In this 2-hour seminar, bestselling Canadian author Julie Barlow breaks down the process of writing a nonfiction book proposal by explaining what agents and publishers are looking for, and how to convince them you will deliver it. Even writers considering self-publishing will see how a good book proposal can help you write, publish and promote your non-fiction book.
Julie Barlow is the co-author of five non-fiction books including The Story of French, The Story of Spanish and Sixty Million Frenchmen Can’t Be Wrong. Her new book, The Bonjour Effect, is due out in April 2016. Winner of QWF’s Mavis Gallant Prize, Julie has written for newspapers and magazines in Canada and the US, including the New York Times and USA Today. She speaks widely about her writing and is a regular contributor to Quebec public affairs magazine L’actualité.
