This 4-hour course will teach writers how to develop a strategy for publishing a work of narrative nonfiction. Topics will include 1) crafting a nonfiction book proposal; 2) building a platform through blogging, online publishing, and social media; 3) the three venues to publication (self-publishing, academic, or commercial press); 4) whether you need a literary agent and how to query them.
Author and Professor Bill Sullivan will also explain the personal plan and query letter he used to obtain his literary agent and publish his international bestseller, “Pleased to Meet Me: Genes, Germs, and the Curious Forces That Make Us Who We Are” (National Geographic Books). There will be a 1 hour interactive lecture and team-based exercises to develop one another’s individual road map to publication.
