A query letter is a hard worker. A good query letter is the difference between published and unpublished. In less that thirty seconds, it must sell your idea for an essay, book, screenplay, or other creative work to a busy acquisitions editor who receives a handful to hundreds of queries per day. It must be engaging and show that you have also done your research. In four weekly workshops, this course will teach you steps for writing an engaging introduction, a smashing summary, and a memorable conclusion. You will also have the opportunity to give your fellow writers an essay to workshop for critical feedback. We will discuss the level of research required in a good query letter, how to tap into the zeitgeist, and much more. Lecture, discussion, work-shopping, and personalised feedback on your writing.
