Do you find writing a book proposal mystifying and confusing? Do you want your peers' feedback on your proposal?
CTSE Book Proposal Support Group welcomes first-time and experienced book writers to exchange book proposal drafts and to offer feedback during the drafting process.
Who should attend?
First-time and experienced book writers. You do not need to have a complete book manuscript to write a book proposal.
What kinds of books?
Single-authored and co-authored books; edited books; academic and trade books.
How much time commitment?
This group meets about once per month to set goals and check in with group members.
Is it a permanent group?
Group members can join and leave at any time. Even if the book proposal is sent and accepted by a publisher, group members can remain in the group to read over others' proposals.
Why should I join?
Book editors are intelligent, well-read people who may not be your subject specialists. Your peers from other disciplines are able to give you an outsider's perspective. Also, writing a proposal, more so than writing, is a lonely process; sharing it in a group keeps you interested and motivated.
