Strong storytelling skills are as important in nonfiction as they are in fiction. Structure and language are key.

For nonfiction, platform is important. Academics who own their subject, who’ve done more thinking and research about it than anyone else, stand out. But your writing chops are what makes it sellable.

FOR NONFICTION, I acquired history for years as an editor. I love big, bold, definitive books that shake up how we think of a person or event.
