About the Event

In this class, literary agent and One Idea co-founder, Lindsey Smith, will walk you through:

  • What goes into a book proposal and why you need one to sell a book
  • How to create a solid platform (even if you don’t have a huge social media following)
  • How to stand out from the slush pile
  • The dos and don'ts of pitching to agents and publishers
  • 10 topics publishers are looking for right now

You’ll get:

  • 2 hours of training (90 minutes of instruction, followed by a 30-minute Q&A) that will be recorded for you to rewatch at any time
  • A step-by-step book proposal template that walks you through how to create your own, along with a sample of one that successfully sold to Macmillan

Be one of the first to enroll and get a bonus!

First 5 enrollments will be sent a copy of Lindsey's latest book, Publishing Your First (or Second) Book: A Field Guide, shipped to them via snail mail. And the following 20 enrollments will be emailed a digital copy of the Field Guide.
