Preparing a Successful Nonfiction Book Pitch Package – with Amy L. Bernstein

  • 23 May 2024
  • 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM
  • Zoom


Registration is closed

Aspiring nonfiction book authors don’t need a completed manuscript before pitching their work to agents and publishers. But many other elements do need to be written and polished before you’re taken seriously. This presentation will show authors what’s involved in writing a stellar nonfiction book proposal and preparing to query the marketplace. Participants will take away solid information on how to write a proposal, craft a query letter, and research where to submit. I’ll share tips on writing a strong pitch, researching “comp” book titles, doing audience analysis, describing your author platform, and more.

AMY L. BERNSTEIN is an eclectic practitioner of literary arts--a multi-genre novelist, award-winning journalist, speechwriter, playwright, poet, and certified nonfiction book coach. Amy also teaches writing workshops and is a frequent guest on podcasts to discuss writing, publishing, and creativity. She brings a compassionate and insightful voice to the challenges and joys of the artistic process. Her nonfiction book, Wrangling the Doubt Monster: Fighting Fears, Finding Inspiration will be published next year.
