You're ready to seek an agent or publisher for your middle-grade or YA manuscript. It's time to craft a query letter—a one-page pitch—for your project. In this four-hour workshop, you'll learn the anatomy of an effective query letter, and how to help yours stand out and get a positive response. Come ready to write a query for a specific project. If you've already written a query and want feedback, bring it to class for discussion. We'll cover other submission essentials, including where to find agents and editors to query, manuscript font and format, and submission tracking. Please obtain a copy of The Children's Writer's and Illustrator's Market 2017 and bring it to class. If you have time before we meet, look it over. (It's under $10 on Amazon.)
