This workshop aims to inform researchers of a new approach to organising basic ideas and large quantities of information into a structured and planned book. The course establishes: how to start writing a book, how to structure book and how to deal with book contracts.
Anticipated learning outcomes:
By the end of this session, you will have a fuller understanding of:
- various readers and decision-makers
- the key message for the book
- a set of subsidiary messages
- creating a structure that incorporates all your information in a reader friendly order
- controlling the way that information flows through the book
- writing quickly
- editing with confidence
- the benefits and disadvantage of literary agents
- the elements contained in standard contracts
- writing a synopsis that has the right components to interest a publisher
This is a practical 'hands-on' workshop, and you should bring the following to work on during the day:
- A copy (or two or three) of a book of the same genre as the one that you would like to write.
- An idea of a book you would like to write - write about one side of A4 collecting your ideas together.
