Book Proposals 101: How a Thought Grows into a Book

You have a good idea for a book–at least you think it’s a good idea!–and you’re really excited about it. Now, what’s next? There seems to be an immense divide between your idea and a finished book and you don’t know how to cross it. We’ll make the journey in this workshop where you’ll learn not only how to generate ideas, but also how to curate them and then shape them into a solid book proposal.


The seminar will take place in the afternoon of Wednesday June 3, 2020 at Drew University Theological Seminary in Madison, New Jersey.  The seminar will be held in Seminary Hall, which is number 47 on the campus map.
