When an acquisitions editor tells you that your book proposal ruined their night, don't panic. It might turn out that the real night-ruiner was the fact that they stayed up for hours to read your entire compelling, exciting manuscript! In this class, writers of nonfiction will practice the art of crafting a "night-destroying" proposal. Students should come to the first day of class with a memoir outline, work-in-progress or proposal in progress. The class will focus on plot, pacing, and arc (the journey the protagonist takes from start to finish) with a mind to sharpen, tighten, and brighten the work, thereby increasing the chances of selling it.
