6-Week Online Course: Drafting Your Book Proposal
Presented by Kelly Anne White
Asynchronous online course begins Tuesday, October 6, 2020 with a live 1-hour Zoom session with instructor Kelly Ann White. A new lesson and assignment will be posted each Tuesday for 6 weeks, and registrants will have access to the lessons through December 29, 2020.

You’ve finally finished that manuscript (or it’s pretty close to completion), so now what? It’s time to put your book through the submission process! And for that, you’ll need a rock-solid book proposal. Bring your project—in any kidlit genre—for personalized instruction on how to build a book proposal that sticks out from the slush pile. At the end of six weeks, you will have a full-on proposal ready to submit to literary agents and book publishers.
