If you’re seeking a traditional publishing path, the query letter is your biggest tool. You need to gain an agent or editor’s attention, and you’ve only got about 300 words to do that. Intimidating? Yes. Possible? Yes.
I’ve been critiquing queries since 2011 on the Writer, Writer, Pants on Fire blog, and have worked with over 200 writers to help make their query as effective as possible. I offer free query critiques every Saturday on the blog in the form of The Saturday Slash. If you’re interested in signing up contact me to get started.
While the Saturday Slash is a free service, please consider donating to help support the blog and podcast in order to keep the site running.
