Submitting to Agents and Query Workshop
Are you ready to pursue traditional publishing with a Big 4 or other publisher that requires agented submissions? In this workshop, author Sylvia Liu will walk you through the querying process (how to find agents in your genre using research tools like Publisher’s Marketplace, pitch contests, conferences, and more) and the elements of a successful query and opening first pages. Students will have the opportunity to share and critique each other’s queries (and opening pages, time permitting), and will hopefully leave the workshop with a polished query letter.
