How to Write a Query Letter

Know the Key Do's and Don'ts in Writing Your Query Letter


Writers looking to land an agent and traditional publishing deal: Have you started writing your book proposal? Are you worried about whether your proposal will entice agents? Do you even know where to start?

The driving force behind your book proposal is the query letter. Its main goal is to get the agent to request additional materials. Many agents receive hundreds of queries every day. They evaluate them very quickly, and dismiss them very quickly.

Yours needs to be outstanding to break through the noise.

Join Jennie Nash as she teaches you how to write a query letter that gets agents' attention. You'll break down the query letter into its foundational elements, perfecting each part to make the whole query sing. This class is applicable to writers of any genre, fiction or nonfiction.
