"Explore editorial tools and techniques that can help you make memoirs even more compelling." —Tanya Gold, instructor

Building your client base often requires honing specific skills to enhance your editorial repertoire. Two of the EFA’s upcoming courses offer professional insight into the unique needs of nonfiction writers. Beginning March 13, Tanya Gold’s new five-week course, The Craft of Memoir, dives deep into this popular genre, giving you a greater understanding of memoir-crafting to help your clients turn their personal experiences into compelling stories. On March 7, Ally Machate’s webinar Winning Book Proposals will teach you what goes into a contract-winning book proposal, and how to present your client in the best possible light. These classes will show you how to support nonfiction authors as they pitch to agents, submit to publishers, or self-publish, paving the way to their publication dreams.

Whether you want to study at your own pace or learn with an instructor’s direct feedback, the EFA has everything you need to broaden your skill set and client base. As always, our library of recorded webinars is available for immediate viewing, so be sure to check it out for dozens of helpful sessions, including many free recordings for members.  Not a member? Join today.
