If you are curious about the world of book publishing and want to ask direct questions about it, this is the space for you! In this workshop, we’ll go through the basics of a non-fiction proposal as well as tips and insights into the publishing industry at large. Not a nonfiction writer? No problem! All writers are welcome! This space will focus more on the general functions of getting published.
