What will I produce during this boot camp?
During the 4 days themselves, we will give you live support and feedback as you work through the two most critical modules: articulating your book’s overarching claims and drafting and revising chapter-level claims.
By working through the entire boot camp curriculum (the 2 modules we will work through during our 4 days together plus the 3 we will support you through completing before and after our 4 days together), you will distill your book’s main claims, ensure your framing, organizing principle, structure, and claims match your book’s evidence, clarify your 3-5 book-level takeaways, align your chapters to your book-level claims, and produce your book’s narrative arc. While this curriculum is not designed to guide you to write any part of your book manuscript or proposal directly, most participants find some of the writing they produce to work in their book proposal and their manuscript’s introduction, with minimal revisions.
