Book Proposal Workshop

Westport Writers’ Workshop


How To Write an Irresistible Nonfiction Book Proposal

with Lucy Hedrick


To secure an agent and publish a nonfiction book, an author must first submit a well-written, compelling, and polished book proposal. Learn the industry standards for a professional book proposal - the sections, the contents, the page length -- plus the art of the query letter and how to find an agent. Each section will be discussed in detail, and participants will leave with a proposal outline, a sample agent submission log, and online resources every writer must know. Space is limited so that each writer's book concept can be discussed in detail.

Lucy Hedrick is the author of Five Days to an Organized Life (Dell, 1990), 365 Ways to Save Time, (William Morrow, 1992), 365 Ways to Save Time With Kids (William Morrow, 1993), 365 Ways to Save Money (William Morrow, 1994), and Get Organized in the Digital Age (NAL, 2002). These five titles sold more than 200,000 copies and were translated in to eight languages. She has parlayed the contents of her five best-selling books into corporate training seminars and work as a product spokesperson.

As Founder and President of Hedrick Communications,, Lucy coaches authors on how to write non-fiction book proposals.
