Query Intensive & Pitch Your Book

Are you ready to start sending query letters to find an agent for your book? Have you sent out dozens of queries already, but not getting the response you want? Your query letter's job is to entice an agent to request a sample chapter or a copy of your manuscript. Condensing the story of your 80,000-word novel into an attractive one-page query letter may be more challenging than writing the novel itself. In this day-long Raleigh writing class we will review successful queries, how to create and manage your platform, and how to pitch your book to agents and readers. You will leave with a new query letter and a marketing plan for your book.

Workshop fee includes lunch at Lily's Pizza.

    Workshop format proves wonderful as usual, from updated information (query letter with five paragraphs) to the simplest reminder (publish chapter excerpts on your blog).

    Darn, I will be out of town. And my novel's not finished. I hope you'll do a repeat later in the year!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
