Queer-y Writing: Tips for Writing an Effective Query

A query email is often your first introduction to an agent or editor. For fiction writers, who often think expansively, these important emails can be challenging to write. However, they are a crucial first step to getting a manuscript published and must be mastered. In this workshop, we’ll explore several approaches to query writing, addressing some of the more difficult aspects of it, particularly how to make a compelling opening to how to streamline your synopsis to how to refine your book’s central message. We’ll discuss structure and tone, and look at some examples together.
