Writing a Successful First Book Proposal

Dec 2, 2022 | Events, News

Looking forward to leading an upcoming workshop at the University of Pennsylvania’s Center for Advanced Research in Global Communication on how to write a successful first book proposal—during a pandemic.


Getting a book published during a global pandemic is no small feat. And it starts with writing a successful book proposal that takes into account the new world that authors, publishing staff, researchers, and global partners now inhabit.

Learn from Dr. Cathy Hannabach, founder of Ideas on Fire, how to design a flexible writing schedule that fits your life and our ever-changing world, identify presses that are the right fit for your goals, and craft a compelling proposal that captures publishers’ attention.
