Up Next: Querying from A to Q

with Jennifer K. Morita


So you’ve finally finished writing your twisty thriller or that culinary cozy that’s been stewing in your head. Great! But now what? If you want to go the traditional route, you’ll probably need a literary agent to sell your manuscript and negotiate a publishing deal.

Learn fundamentals of the querying process, including how to write a query letter, live pitches and Twitter pitch events. (Yes, it’s a thing.) You’ll hear some Do’s and Don’ts from someone who made a lot of mistakes along the way and still managed to sign with an agent.
