Nonfiction Book Proposals and the Publishing Process

Join published author Sarah Lohman for an introductory workshop on putting together a nonfiction book proposal, getting your proposal published, and the ins and outs of the publishing process. We’ll go over how to:

  • Develop your idea
  • Compose a book proposal 
  • Find an agent

As well as:

  • What happens when your book is bought
  • The highs and lows of the writing process
  • The importance of fact checking and footnoting
  • What to expect leading up to you publish date

This class is for you if you are: a nonfiction writer or someone interested in nonfiction writing and relatively new at writing books and proposals. We will not be talking about self-publishing or publishing fiction.

Bring a laptop (fully charged), because we're going to get some work done in class. Bonus if you already have a book idea and are willing to workshop it. Sarah will share their work, provide helpful handouts, and there will be plenty of time for questions. 


Non-Fiction Book Proposals and the Publishing Process takes place Saturdays 8/31-9/7 from 10:00am-12:00pm at Lake Erie Ink (2843 Washington Blvd, Cleveland Heights, OH 44118).
