You have great ideas. You know how to report. You know how to write. And, at this extraordinary moment, you have the time. Are you ready–are you prepared–to write a book?
Join Lauren Kessler, author of 15 books including narrative journalism, immersion reportage, biography, history and more, for this three-session online “crash course.” What does it take to be a book writer? How do you move from journalist to author? What is a pitch? How do you write a proposal? How do you organize material and manage time? Do you need an agent? What does the world of publishing look like these days? Get practical hints and inspirational ideas from a writer “in the trenches.” Jump-start your own project.
