Aiming For an Agent/Publisher - The Query Letter Story

Your writing is you. You have put your heart and soul into it; days, weeks, years perhaps.  Now you feel the time has arrived to take the leap into becoming published. You have heard that getting the attention of an agent or publisher can be a monumental challenge; a challenge so daunting that many writers stop at this point.  The thought of crafting a one page perfect pitch letter is just too big to tackle and so your manuscript sits untouched, unread, and unpublished.

Writing a compelling query letter is a key step to attracting the attention of a mainstream publisher or agent.  Join us as we discover the many formats used in crafting a query letter that tells and sells, regardless of the writing genre.
