Class Title: Pitch Perfect---How To Write a Query Letter & Synopsis that SELLS Instructor: Kristen Lamb Price: $45 USD Standard Where: W.A.N.A. Digital Classroom When: Thursday April 13th, 2017 7:00 PM E.S.T. to 9:00 P.M. EST
You've written a novel and now are faced with the two most terrifying challenges all writers face. The query and the synopsis.
Query letters can be daunting. How do you sell yourself? Your work? How can you stand apart without including glitter in your letter?
***NOTE: DO NOT PUT GLITTER IN YOUR QUERY.
Good question. We will cover that and more!
But sometimes the query is not enough.
Most writers would rather cut their wrists with a spork than be forced to write the dreaded…synopsis. Yet, this is a valuable skills all writers should learn. Synopses are often requested by agents and editors and it is tough not to feel the need to include every last little detail. Synopses are great for not only keeping your writing on track, but also for pitching your next book and your next to that agent of your choice.
This class will help you learn the fundamentals of writing a query letter and a synopsis. What you must include and what doesn't belong.
So make your writing pitch perfect with these two skills!
