How to Write an Effective Query Letter

Apr 16, 2024

Online event

Join us to learn what makes an effective query letter as well as strategies you can use to craft a captivating pitch.

Before submitting your work to agents or publishers, you'll need to write a query letter introducing your project. Taking the time to craft an effective query letter will ensure you're putting your book’s best foot forward. In addition, honing your pitch skills can help you to share your work with confidence—whether you're talking to agents, editors, teachers, librarians, or readers. In this webinar, Julie will draw upon her seventeen years of experience reviewing submissions for publishers and literary agents to discuss what makes an effective query letter and to share strategies authors can use to craft a captivating pitch.
