Mastering the Query Letter- A 4 Week Workshop
This workshop is inclusive of everyone regardless of race, class, gender, age, religious beliefs, and or sexual orientation.
Time & Location
Jul 10, 2021, 1:00 PM
The query letter has one purpose and one purpose only: to seduce the agent or editor into reading or requesting your work. The query letter is so much of a sales piece that it’s quite possible to write one without having written a word of the manuscript. All it requires is a firm grasp of your story premise.
For some writers, the query will represent a completely different way of thinking about their book—because it means thinking about one’s work as a product to be sold. Join editor Elle McKenzie, formerly of Ladderbird Literary Agency, as they/them walk you through the process of querying a literary agent, followed by a Q&A. Elle will also be available for one-on-one feedback.
July 10th- Introduction to the Query Letter
July 17th-Writing the Query Letter
July 24th-Revising the Query Letter
July 31st-Submitting and scheduling for feedback
August 7th will be reserved to schedule a one on one with Elle to receive feedback on your letter.
