Quality Queries & Powerful Proposals: What Do Agents and Publishers REALLY Want?

Quality Queries & Powerful Proposals: What Do Agents and Publishers REALLY Want?

Saturday, April 26, 2014
10:30 am to 1:00 p.m.

In this interactive seminar, we’ll look at why a great query and proposal are crucial for any author who’s seeking a traditional publishing deal — and almost as important for authors who want to self-publish.

We’ll focus on:

  • Queries and proposals: where the creative and business aspects of publishing meet
  • How to think like an agent
  • Are proposals necessary for fiction?
  • Using queries and proposals to enhance your creative process
  • Why queries and proposals are important even if you want to self-publish

Our presenter: MONICA FAULKNER.
