How to Write a Query Letter and Find an Agent: Strategies that Will Help You Get a Response

March 2 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

- $55 – $65
Betsy Thorpe

A writer may spend years pouring heart and soul into a manuscript but become paralyzed when it’s time to seek publication. Is the book really ready? What is a query letter? How does this business even work? How can I find an agent? In this seminar, we’ll talk about the elements of a query letter, querying etiquette, and how to find agents to approach. Then we’ll talk about agents (Who are these people? Why are they even necessary?), your author biography (yes, you have one), and your elevator pitch. You’ll leave for home feeling more confident about taking those next steps toward publication.
