To get a non-fiction book published, authors usually present their ideas to a publisher in a book proposal. Book proposals should give publishers a clear sense of what a book is about, what it will address, and why the author is the best person to write the book.

In this course, you’ll learn how to write a book proposal that you will be proud to share with agents and publishers. This course will help you bring your book idea to life with detailed, step-by-step guidance on how to complete a proposal and get you one step closer to becoming a published author.
