as part of the 2010 Nonfiction Writer's Conference
How to Write a Query Letter that Gets Noticed
Your query letter is often the most important vehicle to get you in the door to an agent or publisher. In the space of only one page, your letter must give a professional and captivating overview of your book and persuade the reader to ask for more.
This session will guide you through this often difficult process, and offer you the insider tips to avoid common mistakes and catch the attention of an agent or publisher. You will learn:
* How to stand out from the crowd
* What elements make a great query letter
* The common mistakes many authors make
* Real-world examples of query letters that worked and queries that fell flat
Andrea Hurst is a literary agent and frequently conducts workshops for authors.
