How to Write a Memoir Book Proposal

Intermediate/Advanced | In this class, you will learn about each component of a memoir book proposal, strategies for writing a proposal that will gain the attention of agents/editors, as well as tips for writing a killer query letter. Bring your laptop or a notebook.

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
