Jumpstart Your Cookbook Proposal
Three Tuesdays, November 2, 9 and 16, 4 – 7 p.m. PT/ 7-10 p.m. ET
Civic Kitchen Zoom Class
13 students maximum
Writing a cookbook or book proposal is a daunting tasks for most of us. If you’re procrastinating about writing your cookbook proposal, you’re not sure what to write, or you need accountability and support, this is the class for you.
You’ll find that our nine hours together are full of practical and strategic advice. And that you won’t just sit there: you’ll be writing your firsts draft. I’ll cover how the publishing industry works and what editors and agents look for in a proposal. Then I’ll discuss what goes in each section. You will write first drafts of several sections in class. At the end of three weeks, you’ll have the start of a proposal, with the knowledge of how to make it irresistible to an agent or editor.
Book proposals have a 1 percent success rate, so it’s critical to learn all you can before sending out your proposal.
Bonus: It’s very difficult to get someone’s successful cookbook proposal, but I’ll share one of mine, which led to a beautiful cookbook by Rizzoli.Interview with Faith Kramer
