Miyazaki JALT:

There's A Book Inside Each of Us

Date: Saturday, May 17th, 2008 Time: 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Paul Moritoshi

It has been said that there's a book inside each of us, but how does one go about writing a persuasive publishing proposal for an EFL textbook? For some, the process seems so intimidating, confusing or demanding that they don't even start. This workshop very briefly outlines the publishing process as a whole then goes into the specifics of how to write a strong proposal. This will be a very 'hands-on' workshop with audience members forming small groups, each working through the various stages of proposal writing to produce the skeleton of a textbook proposal in a EFL-related area of interest to them (Speaking, Listening, Business English etc.). It is also hoped that this workshop will provide the impetus for those in the audience with an idea for a book to actually start writing their proposal.
