Writing Query Letters like a Professional Resume Writer: Standing out from the Crowd
You’ve done it! You’ve written a fantastic story and are ready to share it with the world. Now you need to get the attention of an agent or editor. But how?
The query letter is your “foot-in-the-door” first step. Before the book proposal, before the contract negotiations, you MUST grab attention with the all-important query.
With agents and editors receiving hundreds of emails a week, how do you ensure your letter stands out? With ‘imposter-syndrome’ mentality that habitually attacks writers, how do you confidently present yourself as a solid business bet? This class will provide the tools you need to write query letters that grab attention, create a sense of urgency, and present you as a confident, qualified author.
It’s all about the presentation!
