Adult (18+)
This class is full

Do you have a complete or nearly-complete memoir manuscript? Are you ready to publish, but not sure where to begin? In this class, we will learn the components of a memoir proposal: how to create them, and general information about what publishers and agents require in a proposal. We'll study examples from authors who have successfully sold books on proposal, and in the last part of class, we'll do exercises that will help you begin a draft of your memoir proposal.

Class Format

This class will take place using Zoom videoconferencing. About 15 minutes before your class is scheduled to begin, you'll receive an email from your instructor with a link to join the class meeting!
