The Art of the Query Letter

Intermediate | Whether your goal is securing an agent for your book or querying small presses directly, a stand-out query letter is essential. You only have one shot so make it count with a concise, intriguing description of your book as well as a bio that puts you in the best light possible. During the first session, we’ll discuss and spend time crafting elements of the perfect query. During the second session, we’ll workshop what we’ve written.

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
