Whether you’re drafting your first novel or you’ve revised and polished your memoir to perfection, you’ll need a dynamite query letter to land the agent and publisher of your dreams.

In this hands-on workshop with literary agent Cynthia Manson and editor Caitlin Alexander, you’ll learn the steps to writing an irresistible query letter, the best ways to query agents, how to read between the lines of rejection letters, and much more.

This workshop will be broken into two parts: General Admission ($25 fee) will include the complete presentation by Cynthia and Caitlin. Query Letter Review ($85 fee) will include the complete presentation AND Cynthia and Caitlin will read and review your query letter.
