For the attention of SADIST HOBO

I couldn't find (read: couldn't be arsed because I was upstairs and my notes were downstairs) any handouts on writing a proposal (I genuinely can't remember being given one). So, I did a Google search and found:

http://www.rusoffagency.com/non_fiction_book_proposal.htm

Which has been -very- helpful for me. I know that the proposal is supposed to be approx 2-3 pages for our project, because I don't remember the sample one Neal handed around (then collected back in -_-) being 10 pages or anything ridiculous like that. I also vaguely recall several things in that proposal being mentioned here, and this is a proper site after all.

Hope that helps Beth!

you are the most awesomest wenchiest being alive and i loffa you!
if you're still working on it, ellie just emailed me -
hello
attatched is the template neal gave us.
Basically you have to give an informed pitch, present it well, come up with
a title that isnt too poncy, think about the audience and who it is aimed
at, think about other books like the one yours is and say how it differs.
also why would it be recieved well now? but you can just follow the
questions on the attachment and then you should have covered everything.
text/email if you haev any more questions with it.
love Ellie
i'll email you the attatchment kk?
lofa you!!!

Please please please email the attachment <33
Mine's three pages (double spaced, mind you) atm, so if I could see the attachment and double check I've got what needs to be in there that would be PERFECT.
