Time & Location

10 jul de 2021, 1:00 p. m.




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.

Weekly schedule:

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.

About Elle McKenzie:

Elle holds a B.A. in Screenwriting and Playwriting from Drexel University. Before joining Ladderbird Literary Agency, Elle worked at Hotchkiss Daily & Associates as an Assistant Literary Agent and 21Ninety as a Managing Editor. They/them love to read a variety of genres but are particularly drawn to stories with strong female voices.
