Free seminar: Writing Query Letters That Get a Yes, Monday, Sept 26, in Kitchener

From Inky Girl
The Canadian Authors Association, Waterloo-Wellington presents…
Writing Query Letters That Get a Yes
Monday, September 26, 2016
7:00 – 9:00 p.m.
Country Hills Community Library, 1500 Block Line Road, Kitchener, Ontario (Map here)

If you want to get the attention of an agent or a publisher, you need to craft a good query letter. Using real life examples, this seminar shows you how to do it. There isn’t just one way to write a successful query, and your query doesn’t have to be perfect; but it does need to persuade an agent that you’ve got a book that they can successfully pitch to a publisher.

Workshop leader Brian Henry has been a book editor and creative writing instructor for more than 25 years. He publishes Quick Brown Fox, Canada’s most popular blog for writers, teaches creative writing at Ryerson University and has led workshops everywhere from Boston to Buffalo and from Sarnia to Charlottetown. But his proudest boast is that he has helped many of his students get published.
Read reviews of Brian's weekly courses and Saturday workshops see here.

Attendance is free, but please let me know you’re coming so I know how many handouts to bring. Email:
