Mastering Your Query – Spring 2023

In Mastering Your Query, Alice will cover the basic structure of a query letter, tips and tricks for improving it, and tactics to avoid. Participants will then write (or revise) a query letter for their book, which they can then share for critique. The goal of this workshop is for participants to have a polished query letter in hand to send out to agents when they leave.

Alice Speilburg is the founding agent of Speilburg Literary and has worked in book publishing for more than a decade. She is a member of the Association of American Literary Agents (formerly the AAR) and represents narrative nonfiction and commercial fiction. 

This class is suitable for intermediate levels.
