In this afternoon session, we'll dig deep into your agent query letters, helping you brainstorm your ideas in small group critique sessions along with instructor feedback. You'll perfect your opening, streamline your story description, and be sure your bio information is relevant no matter what your level of experience. Leave the session with a reference list of where to find agents, when best to query, and mistakes to avoid. You spent years on your novel. Don't let agents pass on your work because of a weak query letter! Be sure to bring your ideas and laptop/notepad and be ready to work!
