Without a proper synopsis and query letter, your chances of selling even the best story are slim!

In this workshop, you’ll learn the ins and outs of writing synopses and query letters for fiction, literary nonfiction, and memoirs—what to do and what not to do.

We’ll discuss the specific parameters agents and publishers expect—how long each one should be, what elements should be included, and what tone to use.

You’ve worked so hard on your book, don’t sell it short with a weak synopsis or query letter! Join me for:

 “Writing Synopses & Queries”
