I am presenting a query letter workshop as part of this year's FogLit Festival in Saint John, New Brunswick. This workshop will cover everything you need to know about query letters: what they are, how to write them, and who to send them to. You will learn why you do (or don't) need a literary agent, the various paths you can take to publication, and — most importantly — how to write an intriguing query letter to help you achieve your ultimate publishing goal, whatever it may be. Some of the workshop topics include: the key components of a query letter, common querying mistakes to avoid, how to write a compelling pitch, and what literary agents are hoping to read in your query letter.
A Q&A session will directly follow the workshop, so you can stick around and ask any questions you have about query letters, literary agents, and the publishing industry.
Register now for the workshop! Limited space available.
