Recorded online workshop: How to craft your nature writing book proposal
Caro Clarke of Portobello Literary guides you through writing your proposal in this recorded session.
This is a recording of a live online event, if you were unable to attend or wish to revisit it. It was a really useful session, not just if you are thinking of submitting to the prize, but also if you plan to approach agents or publishers. Thank you Caro Clarke of Portobello Literary for leading the session and to Claire Reiderman of Canongate Books for chairing. And thank you to everyone who attended (particularly for all the excellent questions!).
We also have in-person events in August 2023 in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dundee, led by Jini Reddy, see details here.
