Marcela Landres Offers a Workshop on How to Write a Book Proposal on Feb. 8, 2007

How to Write a Knockout Book Proposal
Sponsored by the Learning Annex

WHAT: Agents and editors don't have time to read entire manuscripts.
So how do they choose which writers they want to work with?
Proposals. Regardless of whether you have a book for adults or
children, in fiction or nonfiction, you need a strong proposal. But
while many writers invest a significant amount of time, energy and
money in crafting their manuscripts, few know how to compose a
proper proposal. In this class, you will learn:

* Why 90% of submissions are rejected based on the cover letter alone
* The single most reliable—and free!—resource for finding a good
* Three common, yet easily avoidable, mistakes writers make
* A proposal's true purpose (hint: it's not to demonstrate talent)

WHEN: Thursday, February 8, 6:45 pm - 9:30 pm

WHERE: School for the Physical City, 55 East 25th Street b/w Madison
and Park Ave, New York City, NY

WHO: Marcela Landres is an Editorial Consultant who was formerly an
editor at Simon & Schuster and is the creator of Latinidad, which

Digest Magazine. A member of the Women's Media Group, she has acted
