Join Writers SA's Bronwyn Tilley as we navigate what a successful query letter should look like when you're ready to start submitting to publishers and agents so you can create one of your own!
Writers SA presents an on-demand workshop that you can watch in your own time for a short time. We're also including a downloadable resource list and examples of a query letter and synopsis.
The language of the publishing industry varies from country to country, house to house, and it can be hard to tell what a publisher or agent is actually looking for in terms of a great query letter guarunteed to hook them in and make them ask to see more. In this on-demand course we'll traverse the submissions landscape, break down some of the complicated meanings, and also look at what forms the query from the greeting to the hook to the bio.
