Non-Fiction Submission Guide
Non-fiction titles are often sold on proposal, so your book does not need to be complete at the time of submission to the agency.
When submitting a non-fiction project please write a covering letter introducing yourself and your project along with details about you, your profession or expertise, if applicable. If you have a significant platform, i.e. Social media presence, write articles or blog or any general online presence, please include details of all media activity.
Please attach your proposal which should include a 20 – 50 page writing sample.
The proposal should include the following:
>> What your book is about and why it needs to be written.
>> Where it sits in the market, with reference to other similar or competing titles.
>> Why you are well-placed to write the book, with reference to your background and any credentials or professional expertise you may have.
>> A chapter outline, with a paragraph or two explaining what will be covered in each chapter.
