Although many say writing nonfiction is more manageable than writing fiction, it is no less work. Nonfiction is, broadly speaking, the most common form of writing out there. This course focuses on commercial nonfiction genres, and concentrates on helping authors turn their ideas into a solid book proposal.
The course looks at the principles of writing nonfiction and what’s involved, and explores the various forms of nonfiction. Tutors will provide resource materials for authors to absorb and guidelines to implement in their own time.
Aimed at seasoned writers who are ready to take their writing to the next level, the six weeks are designed to help writers package a sellable idea.
BONUS: The last two weeks will feature round tables with HarperCollins published authors, sharing their writing experience with students in a live online environment.
At the end of the course students should be able to go away and produce a concrete nonfiction proposal.
