PROPOSAL CONTEST

The ball is in your court! If you attended a live, in-person workshop, or are part of the online workshop, you have an amazing opportunity right in front of you: to enter the Writer’s Workshop proposal contest. Please do not let this pass you by! There are THREE really good reasons to enter:
  1. There is literally no other way to be seen by the Hay House editorial staff without being represented by a literary agent
  2. As a Writer’s Workshop participant, you will not be expected to have a large author platform in order to win
  3. We’ve found that having a hard-and-fast deadline is a HUGE motivator to actually get the proposal written—it can literally be the difference between wanting to write a book and actually writing it!
