4-Week: Writing the Perfect Book Club Book


Book clubs are among the best possible readers – their members are smart, thoughtful, enthusiastic, and engaged, and as a group, they wield a powerful influence: word of mouth praise from book clubs can turn books into bestsellers! 
What makes a novel or memoir a good book club pick? We’ll look at favorites such as The Help, The Kite Runner, and Eat, Pray, Love to see what they have in common that make them irresistible to book clubs. Then we’ll apply those lessons to your idea or premise, examining your characters, plot, and theme to make sure they can stand up to savvy book club readers. In-class discussion and exercises and take-home work will help you plan or revise your idea into a book that will get book clubs talking.
