Conquering the Query: How to Research and Pitch Agents

  • Schuler Books & Music 1982 West Grand River Avenue Okemos, MI, 48864 United States (map)


What's it take to write a query letter that catches an agent's attention? And how can you make sure you're pitching the right agent in the first place? Join us for a workshop where we will dig into writing perfect hooks, the importance of comparative titles, and why you should take your time while researching agents. Sample query letters will be provided for you to take home, and we'll go over several successful queries (for books that are being published!) that you can learn from.
