Please read this important message from your personal tutor, Rob Parnell:

Dear Fellow Writer,

Welcome to my latest resource - this one specifically designed to propel your nonfiction writing career, or at least get you started on the right path. It's my belief this topic is poorly served by most educational bodies and that this course should be seen as a sincere attempt to rectify this situation.

I believe this is important because a good grasp of nonfiction writing is actually fundamental to ALL writing.

So, what does nonfiction writing cover?

Biography, creative nonfiction, history, self-help, travel, how-to, memoir, health, diet, lifestyle, psychology, religious, political, news, scandal, internet content, copywriting, blogging, and a whole host of fact, reportage, and opinion based text. 

As you can probably tell, nonfiction pretty much covers everything that is NOT fiction.

So why is this area of writing so badly taught? 

My guess is because we mostly take it for granted. Our education system assumes we all already know how to do it. Plus, we all READ nonfiction constantly, probably without even being aware that's what we're doing.

Nonfiction is like the air we breathe. ALWAYS AROUND US but hard to pin down unless we examine it closely.

And that's what this course is: a thorough examination of the genre that gives you a specific gameplan to enable you to compete in this highly lucrative market.

This may surprise you but nonfiction OUTSELLS fiction all of the time, year on year, always has, probably always will.

To prove it to yourself just put a how-to book on Amazon and watch it OUTSELL your novel by (usually) a factor of ten to one. Plus, look at mainstream publisher guidelines. You'll see a tepid hesitance at the idea of receiving your new fiction manuscript compared to an enthusiastic interest in whatever you might want to submit in the nonfiction department.

Even better, publishers don't even want you to write the whole MS straightaway. You can submit them nonfiction book proposals before they commission you to write them! Now that's wonderful.

What's in this extraordinary new course?

So much actually - it might take your breath away!

Insightful, well-presented, and a ton of bonus resources!

by Guy Lecky-Thompson, MSc.
This is a complete and well-presented course covering all aspects of preparing, writing, and (hopefully) publishing your non-fiction book. There are some topics that are necessarily skimmed over slightly, but these are supported by ample 'read in your own time' bonus resources. Overall, I found the video side to be about the right length; you get the PDF of the text as a bonus (I won't spoil the others!) For those tempted to go straight to the PDF: don't! It's well worth taking the journey with Rob through all the various lessons as he is the embodiment of his own observation that some material is engaging when delivered by a good teacher, but can be dry in written form. In my five or six pages of notes, I've got three or four lists of actions, a couple of pages of bullet points and a list of topic ideas that came to me while following through some of the advice during the lesson videos. These alone are worth the price of the course. So, why not 5 stars? I would have appreciated a few worksheets (say one per group of topics) to help me align my thoughts with the course content. I'm sure a few well-chosen exercises imposed by Rob and supported by his wealth of experience would have generated even more ideas and helped to make the ideas more concrete. Maybe I'm being too critical: it's a great course, and has inspired me to plan, write and publish a new book. For that alone, I'm thankful to have found it.

Welcome/Introduction

Much information, even in the introduction to the course. Looking forward to learning lots from the course itself! I have now completed the course and have found much helpful information and will keep it as a resource as I continue to pursue a writing career. Thank you, Rob Parnell!

How to write great Nonfiction for profit

by Ineke Kruger
Well, this is a lot of information. I am going to use the template idea. I also agree with Rob that when writing your first draft is important to just write everything that comes up while writing on the topic. Thanks a lot, I appreciate the slow and clear voice Rob is using to explain everything.

Very Informative

by Mary James
A strategic walking narrative to prepare the novice writer of the work ahead of him or her. Rob Parnell delivers in a clear and succinct way as well as offers .pdf files at the end for those who need to review the written text. As always, thanks Rob, I like your tutorials. M.James

Ideas about which to write

by Patricia Fleck
Interesting way to come up with ideas. I wake up with a new book idea running thru my head and keep a notebook and pen beside the bed. Sometimes those ideas are in the form of a dream, a poem, an outline. I can't get them written down fast enough because I'm afraid I'll lose them. If I come up with a title first, it restricts my writing and stifles the creativity. Other times, I can visualize a theme around a title. I don't think there's any certain time to have the title pop into your head. It could be in the middle of the writing!
