    I am tossing an idea around for critiquing query letters at this meetup. If you are interested, please post a copy of your query letter on the Discussion Board so that we can each print out a copy and share our critique. Please post as a reply to the "Query Critique" post.

    I have updated some information regarding query letters on my blog. Find it at: http://giovannicrisan.blogspot....­
