Writing a book? You need to take this class.

Posted by Kate Tuttle on

Let's say you've been working on a memoir or a collection of essays. Or perhaps you're trying to pull together all the advice you want to pass along in your field -- a guidebook to adopting internationally, an insider's look at how to start a community garden. 

What you need to write -- right now -- is a book proposal. A proposal is your first tool to get your book published. The right proposal will help you find an agent, a publisher, an audience for your work. 

How to get started? Take a three-hour class taught by Valerie Boyd, award-winning author and faculty at the University of Georgia. Her class will teach you how to write a book proposal that sells -- without selling out. Class is this Saturday, June 18. Sign up today!

  • You all have been referred to us by our good friend Art Harris. My wife and I are 75 and 76 respectively. We want to write a book together….
    Autobiography,memoir,legacy sort of thing. Together, we have built a concept/company. We want this book to be the corporate legacy/memory. Succeeding generations will tend to forget. Not just family but the wider clientele that we have served along the way.
    What do you recommend for us from your arsenal of coaching, educational tools ???
    Thank you for a reply.

  • I’m so glad to see a substantial resource for writers in Atlanta. My main message is for Mr. Fulmer, however. Mr. Fulmer, will you be offering a novel-length mystery course? I’ve written one novel, a literary mystery, and am on a second, possibly also the same, but need help with craft and would like to just talk with other writers. The first novel is being read at Hachette but it has been there more than a year (slipped in through a colleague) so I’m not expecting anything from it. A workshop may be the antidote. Thanks very much. S Johnson
