Writing the Dreaded Query Letter (Adults, 1 Week)

Writing the Dreaded Query Letter (Adults, 1 Week)

Presented by The Writer's Center at The Writer's Center

You’ve spent months (or years) of your life—not to mention copious amounts of blood, sweat, and tears—writing a dynamite novel. Don’t simply spend five minutes slapping together a weak query letter; you owe it to yourself to write a great one that will break through the slush-clutter at top literary agencies. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to entice your dream agent into reading your masterpiece by writing a tight query that really sings (while avoiding those pitfalls that will land your query in the trash). I’ll also outline my “A-B-C” submission strategy while highlighting some valuable targeting resources. Bring four copies of a draft query and a red pen with lots of ink! Note: primarily intended for novel writers.
