How to be a non-fiction author
We’ll be running a live online class on Zoom on 9th March 2024 from 10am-12 noon UK time (GMT) in which award-winning author and Delayed Gratification associate editor James Montague will show you how to write and sell your non-fiction book
James will take you through the process of how to pitch, structure and write your own non-fiction book. You will learn:
- How to pitch your idea to an agent or publisher. James will go through the process of breaking down an idea and putting together the elements which a publisher wants to see, using real pitches that have been successfully turned into published books.
- The process of structuring and ordering your book.
- Tips on how best to approach researching and writing your book.
Who it’s for
The course is for adults only. The course would especially benefit people who have an idea they would like to pursue as a non-fiction book, but it is open to anyone who wants to learn the process by which books come to life.
Tickets cost £36 (including VAT) for subscribers and £60 (including VAT) for non-subscribers. We’ll ask for your delivery postcode to verify your subscription when you book your ticket.
