November at MWAA: Writing Effective Query Letters

Please note that this meeting is on the second Wednesday of the month, a week earlier than we normally meet.

You’ve finally gotten your manuscript into ready-for-prime-time shape. Now you want it (and you) to catch the attention of an agent or publisher. How do you do that? Two words: query letter. Writing an effective query letter is both and art and a science, and Mary Stojak joins MWAA on Wednesday, November 14th at 7 p.m. to discuss the ins and outs of developing the very best query letter to pique the interest of that agent or publisher of your dreams.
