Description:One of the great things about nonfiction book writing is that you're 10 times more likely to get published than you'd be if you wrote fiction. Whether you dream of becoming a full-time author, writing books to advance your career, or penning your memoir or family history, this fun and information-packed course will teach you how to plan, research, write, edit, and publish your masterpiece. First you'll learn how to choose a topic, appraise the competition, and immerse yourself in your subject by performing research and interviews. Then you'll get into the heart of writing and editing as we explore structure, style, and strategies for getting the work done. Finally, you'll delve into the publishing industry and learn how to write winning query letters and proposals for publishers and agents or pursue a variety of nontraditional publishing options. Requirements: Internet access, e-mail, the Microsoft Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox Web browser, and the Adobe Flash and PDF plug-ins (two free and simple downloads you obtain at by clicking Get Adobe Flash Player and Get Adobe Reader).
