Writing Query Letters that Get a Yes
Saturday, July 11, 2020
Time to be announced
Ambassador Bridge Holiday Inn, 1855 Huron Church Road, Windsor, 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; it just needs to persuade an agent that you’ve got a book that they can successfully pitch to a publisher.
This seminar is part of the Windsor International Writers Conference, which runs Friday, July 6, through Sunday, July 8. 
See the conference schedule here and registration here.

And as a bonus,
 book a short one-on-one consult with Brian to make your query perfect. Just ask when you book your spot at the conference.
