Bite the Bullet: Writing Query Letters [Alice Acheson]
You understand the elements of the book proposal, but writing that query letter is still daunting. Where to begin? Reference books seem to have conflicting methods. Is there one way to do it? What details must be included? What to avoid? For fiction or nonfiction, Alice Acheson shares what works, what doesn’t, and why. For individualized attention, the pre-class assignment (to write a query letter, based on instructions received upon registration) must be emailed directly to the instructor a week before the class.
